Mystery Booms Heard Across the U.S.

Beginning near midnight on December 4th, unexplained booms and trembling ground was reported in 5 states across the U.S. within a 24-hour span and is still occurring in Georgia.  Extending from Arizona to Rhode Island, this unprecedented and nearly simultaneous series of mystery booms vividly depicts the diagonal stress being asserted across North America.

"Plate movements and spreading Atlantic have positioned the N American continent for what we have long described. A diagonal tear in the New Madrid, a bowing of the continent around San Diego so that Mexico is too far West, an adjustment up the West Coast to relieve the bow. Meanwhile, the entire continent has stress of some kind as this process has already begun but has not manifested in large adjustments, quakes, as yet.

It soon will!" 


Georgia  (Dec 4th, 5th and 6th)

Columbia County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) director Pam Tucker tells WJBF News Channel 6 there have been several loud booms reported in the county over the last couple of days.

On Tuesday, Tucker tells us there was a distant loud boom reported in the the Pinebrook area off of Hereford Farm Road between 9:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.

On Wednesday, at 9:07 p.m., a county resident heard a loud rumble and he says his driveway is now lifted up with cracks in in and the road and sidewalks near his home are now cracked.

Then, Thursday morning at 5:00 a.m., a man and his neighbor both heard a loud boom on the 200 block of Louisville Road.

Tucker tells us officials are looking for the cause of the booms and rumbling.

Arizona (Dec 4) -

Jean Swesey was doing homework with her son in Cottonwood when it happened.

"It was a whole series of booms," Swesey said. "Up to six or seven. It was fast, it went loud. We were quiet and then my daughter down the hall screams really loud, ‘Did you hear that?' I sat there for a second and I heard another set."

Swesey wasn't alone. Residents in communities in and around Verde Valley and as far as Flagstaff called 911 or their police and fire departments to report the strange booming sounds.

"It sounded like thunder, but underground," Swesey said. "Like muffled thunder. And all the dogs in the neighborhood, all of them that were outside all started barking at once."

CBS 5 News first received reports of the explosion-like noises shortly after 5 p.m. Tuesday and began checking with law enforcement and government sources. The U.S. Geological Survey reports no significant earthquake activity in Arizona that could have created the booms.

The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office had deputies in the area who either heard it or tried to respond to resident calls. They found nothing.

The Sedona Fire District dispatched a crew to check a report of a strange odor, but that was unfounded and may not be related to the sounds.

The Camp Verde Marshal also received a number of phone calls about the booms. Officers found no evidence of any explosions.

But the Verde Valley contains large expanses of uninhabited land. "Maybe when the light comes back they'll find something," said Gary Johnson of Sedona Fire.

Swesey sure hopes so. "It was just, ‘boom-boom-boom-boom-boom all over the Verde Valley."


Texas (Dec 4)

“We started getting calls at 3:09 p.m. (Tuesday),” said Eric Meyers, Navarro County Emergency Coordinator. “The first calls were north of Corsicana in the Hickory Hollow area with two separate residents out there reporting unusual tremors being felt along with a rumbling type of noise.”

“About two hours later, approximately five o’clock, there were additional reports in the same area of heavier tremors, the same vicinity, the same residents,” Meyers said. Another report came from the western part of the county, near Navarro Mills.

After the second round of reports, Meyers posted it on Facebook and suddenly there were more reports, but coming from all over, including Streetman, Purdon, Pursley and Dawson. Some of the reports came from as far away as Freestone and Limestone counties. The line runs about 50 to 60 miles long, and the tremors didn’t act like any other thing except perhaps earthquake booms, which are shallow sometimes undetectable tremors similar to what’s been happening locally.

“This is an unexplained event likely of a natural origin,” Meyers said. “We can’t come up with a point of origin or a cause or explanation of why this is happening.”

“We were trying to determine what was going on, any type of military exercises at a higher level than locally, we worked on this throughout the night and we eliminated everything we could think of and continued to do some through today,” Meyers said.

“We went through the process of elimination on what it could be and ruled out all these different things,” he said. “Whatever it was hasn’t occurred since 4 a.m. Wednesday. It’s unusual, to say the least.”



Alabama (Dec 4) -

At approximately midnight around Gentilly Mobile Home Park, a mysterious loud bang was heard.

Phone calls to The Plainsman office suggested that the bang was heard over a far larger radius than Gentilly Park.

Residents around the area do not seem to believe the sound was a gunshot or fireworks, as the sound was described as far too loud.

Capt. Tom Stofer of the Auburn Police Department said the department received a call about the noise, but after sending officers out to the area could not find a source or evidence of damage.

"We were really never able to indicate where the sound came from," Stofer said. "As far as we know, nothing was reported afterward as being damaged."

Stofer could not offer any possibilities of what caused the sound.

"The source of the noise or sound is really unknown at this time," Stofer said.

More information will be released as it becomes available.


Rhode Island (Dec 4)

Just before midnight on Monday, reports of a loud boom flooded police stations and social media sites alike.

Sources from the Warwick Police Department said they received nearly 100 phone calls reporting a loud noise that some thought was an explosion. Some residents called to say it shook their homes.

On the other side of Narragansett Bay in Barrington, residents also reported the noise, and a few said a flash of light accompanied it.

The calls prompted an initial police and fire search of the areas, and then marine crews took to the waters between Conimicut and Bullocks Point to search for the source of the sound. Senior Chief Jamey Kinney, from the southeast sector of the Unite States Coast Guard, said one of their boats from Castle Hill joined four other local boats to comb Narragansett.

Initially, the Coast Guard made calls to T.F. Green to see if they had any missing planes, but the FAA confirmed all was status quo. They also reached out to National Grid to see if any transformers had exploded, but they, too, confirmed all was well. The Coast Guard then tossed around the idea that the noise could have been a vessel in distress, but Kinney said their foray into the waters was more as a precautionary measure.

“It’s better to respond earlier,” said Kinney.

But there was no vessel, and after combing the waters for an hour and 50 minutes the Coast Guard returned their team to shore empty-handed.

To add to the mystery, residents further reported a low, droning, humming noise coming from the water that began about an hour or so after the initial boom was heard, about the same time crews took to the water to comb for a source.

Some on social media said the hum sounded like a distress signal, while others said it didn’t sound like anything they’d heard coming from the bay before. One person said it sounded like it could be a tugboat. But Kinney said the source of the hum is just as mysterious as whatever caused the initial boom.

Locally, reports of the boom came from local neighborhoods like Buttonwoods, Hoxsie, Conimicut, Lakewood, Edgewood, Warwick Neck, Gaspee and Governor Francis Farms. Other media outlets have reported that the noise was heard as far away as Somerset, Mass. Yet, there were still some residents of those communities that missed the boom altogether.

Though Kinney said, “strange stuff happens all the time,” he has never heard of mysterious boom like this in this area.

Mysterious booms increasingly being reported across the U.S. since December 24.

Mysterious Boom Rattles Across Corpus Christi, Texas (Dec 28)

A loud boom Sunday evening sent many people out of their homes and sent emergency crews scouring the city for answers.

The city's 911 system was flooded with calls around 630PM from people all over town, who either heard the boom, or had their homes shake from the sound wave.

Reports of the boom stretch from the Rodd Field and Yorktown area to downtown and many places in between.

But after an extensive search of the area, no evidence of an explosion or fire was ever found.

No one knows for sure where the boom came from or what caused it.

Mysterious Booms Heard Across Toronto Canada (Dec 30)

The mysterious booms continue across Toronto.

People from Toronto all the way to Newcastle and Peterborough heard the same sound that was widely reported on social media across the Greater Toronto Area on Christmas Eve. It was also reported north of the city in Markham.

“We heard it again around 2:30 and 4,” said Jennifer MacKinnon of Newcastle.

Once again there were no seismic events reported by the United State Geological Survey (USGS). There were also no reports to the American Meteor Society over Ontario.

Loud Boom Shakes Homes Across Cranston, Rhode Island (Dec 30)

Just before 8 a.m. this morning, residents throughout Cranston felt a boom that rattled windows, shook houses and sent alarms and pets into a frenzy.

Cranston Police Chief Col. Marco Palombo said police are investigating the cause of the boom in response to media inquiries.

The chief tweeted that Cranston Police is coordinating with Johnston Police to find a cause. Either department can be called with reports.

"PD encourages residents to call in to assist," Palomobo tweeted.

So far, numerous people in Cranston have reported hearing or feeling something.

Loud Boom Heard Near Boulder City Nevada Caused by Earthquake (Dec 30)

Residents described loud noises and tremors, which were also felt in Henderson.

“It really sounded more like an explosion,” said Boulder City resident Steve Andrascik. “I didn’t know if it was an earthquake or the the house next door exploded.”

“It shook the windows, and I didn’t know what was happening,” he said. “It was unsettling.”

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, a 2.8 magnitude earthquake occurred at 5:38 a.m. just southeast of the city.

Oklahoma Booms Caused by Quakes (Nov 4)

When it comes to Oklahoma earthquakes many people say it’s not the shaking but the sound that is unnerving.

The Oklahoma Geological Survey says 99 percent of earthquakes in Oklahoma come with a boom, some louder than others.

Doug Gregory, who lives close to where a number of the earthquakes happened over the weekend, said, “It’s kind of like a thunderstorm going over but you know that’s not happening.”

Mr. Gregory said he felt several over the weekend.

Amie Gibson with the Oklahoma Geological Survey says so far this month Oklahoma has had at least 65 earthquakes.

Gibson said, “I really wish we could say no there’s not a bigger one coming, but it’s foolish to think we could guess that.”

Unexplained Booms Rattle East Coast Residents (Aug 24)

"The whole beach house shook. It sounded like a very low explosion. There were three booms, each separated by a few seconds. Then, a few minutes later, there was a fourth, softer boom."

Residents around Hampton Roads and in northeastern North Carolina took to social media sites to report that they heard three or four loud booms.

The U.S. Geological Survey received reports from residents who heard the noise which some said was accompanied by shaking and came on the two-year anniversary of the 5.8 magnitude earthquake that was centered near Mineral.

A reader reported via Twitter that he felt “three blast waves” this morning in Sandbridge. Virginia Beach emergency dispatchers said they received one report from someone in the Red Mill area. On Facebook, people reported feeling the rumble or hearing an unexplained noise.

Public affairs officers at Oceana Naval Air Station, Navy Region Mid-Atlantic and Joint Base Langley all said they had no reports of any activity.

Neighbors Keep Hearing Mysterious Booms Near Richmond Virginia - Aug 20 - 

(Courtesy of Carlos Ochoa)


Some people living on Grayland Avenue near Carytown told CBS 6 they have heard a mysterious boom sound for the past few months.

“It’s like a boom that has an echo to it,” said Thomas Daniel who lives near Grayland Avenue and S. Sheppard Street.

Daniel told CBS 6 news reporter Chelsea Rarrick that he hears the mystery sound periodically, sometimes even a few times a week. He said he first heard it while sitting on his front porch around 2 a.m.

“You think sometimes it’s like a train backing into another train,” said Daniel

Sarah Barrow also lives on Grayland Ave. and heard a boom for the first time this week around 10 or 11 p.m.

“The front right window shook, which made me realize it’s more than just a backfire from a truck on a highway,” she said.

CBS 6 contacted the Richmond Police Department regarding the noise. RPD said they have received a couple of reports regarding the sounds in the area, but can’t confirm what it is since an officer didn’t hear the sound.

“Where is this coming from?” said Daniel.

Mysterious Booms Heard Across Pennsylvania County Remain Unexplained (May 13)
Lots of people heard a blast at about 9 p.m. Monday but nobody so far seems to know what caused the sound, which many described as a “massive explosion” heard from Mercer to Sandy Lake and Grove City.

It was louder than anything I ever heard in my life,” said Mike Lasko, who lives along Lamor Road in East Lackawannock Township. “It made me jump two feet in the air.”

The Greenville teacher was on Spruce Drive in Mercer when the sound erupted.

“Everybody came out of their homes wondering what the heck happened.”

The county’s deputy 911 director, Russ Saylor, would like to know what the loud noise was, too, but admits he’s having little luck in finding out.

Saylor said a friend of his son’s asked him Monday evening if he knew anything about a “loud explosion” in the Mercer area. “I called into work and was told that they had received calls from Grove City, Sandy Lake, East Lackawannock Township, all asking what it was. We dispatched the state police, but they weren’t able to find anything,” Saylor said.

He also said he recalls another similar incident years ago. “I remember Frank (Janetti) going out himself looking for what might have caused it. But he never found anything.”

Janetti is the county’s public safety director.

Saylor wasn’t certain how many calls 911 received Monday night, because one incident report was filed rather a separate report for each call. There were no reports of any damage that he knows of, he said.

Cpl. Ronald Shoup, a state police shift supervisor at the Troop D barracks in Jackson Township, said four troopers looked for signs of fire, smoke or people in distress around Mercer but found nothing out of the ordinary.

Tuesday morning, Lasko said, there was speculation around Mercer that gas drilling operations in Mercer County were somehow linked to the sound.

“Everyone knows about it but no one knows what caused it,” he said of the sound. “It’s a big mystery.”

Gas operations didn’t appear to be involved because there were no reports of any environmental damage, said Gary Clark, communication director at the state Department of Environmental Protection office in Meadville.

“Believe me, if somebody spills a gallon of diesel fuel, I hear about it,” he said.

Across the hall, Gordon Buckley, DEP emergency response manager, said they weren’t aware of any problems in Mercer County.

“We operate a 24-hour telephone number and respond to emergencies,” he said. “There’s nothing on it. We had no report of any explosions.”

That includes Tennessee Gas Pipeline’s pumping station along Greenville Road near Fullingmill Road in Jefferson Township. Its 32-inch buried lines are part of El Paso Corp.’s 60-year-old interstate natural-gas pipeline system.

Cory Masson, an employee of Atlas Energy, said well-tenders from his company called him Monday night to ask about the loud noise.

There was a similar thing about three weeks ago, on a Saturday night, right about the same time,” he said. “But I know it wasn’t any of our wells that blew up. I would have heard about that, if that had been the case,” he said.

County Commissioner Chairman John Lechner, who lives in Hermitage, said he wasn’t aware of the noise and didn’t hear any talk about it Tuesday around the courthouse.

Others suggested “exploding targets,” sold to shooting enthusiasts who like to see and hear something blow up.

The targets, sold in stores and online, are made of explosive materials that can be set off by bullets fired from guns as light as .22 caliber rifles or pistols or high-powered rifles that fire far more powerful ammunition.

After getting nine reports of residents hearing the sound from Lamor Road to Greenville Road along the borders of Jefferson and Coolspring Townships, Jeff Lockard, chief of Jefferson Township police, said his department will try to get to the bottom of the unexplained sound.

I’m not ruling out exploding targets, but this boom was bigger than what they could produce,” he said.

We’ve been on these calls more than once in the last couple of years,” Shoup said.

Michigan Mystery Booms Remain Unexplained (May 2)

What residents describe as "loud booms" and "explosions"  remain a mystery.

For a couple months, people living in Mt. Morris and surrounding communties report hearing noises.

Mt. Morris resident, Mary White described it, "it's a huge boom a boom you cannot miss it."

She says it's been happening for several months.

"At random times there are huge explosions in the area somewhere to the point where it shakes my house, the pictures and mirrors rattle on the wall," said White.

Brian menerey lives in Mt. Morris.

He says he has also experienced the unexplainable racket during the daytime hours.

"Definitely not gunshots. They sound more like bombs going off or something dropping that's really heavy like a big dumpster just dropping out of the sky or something," said Mt. Morris resident, Brian Menery.

It's literally shaking them up.

"Couple of them you do end up feeling the vibration from them some are really big others aren't as big but still pretty big booms out there."

No one knows where the blast is coming from not even authorities.

Flint Police have dismissed the possibility of the noise being a byproduct of training at a secret location.

Lt. Collin Bernie of the Flint bomb squad says they have not activated any explosives at the site since February 26, 2013.

Meanwhile, it's keeping these residents on the edge of their seats waiting for the next big boom.

"Doesn't really bother me but people who are closer aren't liking the shaking rattling and rolling," said Menery.

"You know it would be nice to know why my house is rattling every week," said White.

Southern Idaho Booms Remain Unexplained (Apr 30)

"It's annoying and I actually do feel like the windows are going to break so I kind of get mad. And it upsets my dogs a lot."

The big question is what is causing these rumbling noises? One theory is that they are simply earthquakes. But residents that have experienced both disagree.

"There was no movement of the ground it was just noise. it was indescribable it was not like anything I've ever heard before and I've been in earthquakes in southern California."

One theory is that they are caused by the bombing and sonic booming from the aircraft that take place at Mountain Home Air Force base do during practice exercises.

Byron Schmidt, Mountain Home Air Force Base chief of air space management says, "We're probably not the culprits that are causing this. The sonic boom is a very quick impulse noise that happens on a millisecond timeframe. The rumblings I heard were longer in duration and really would be hard to attach an aviation perspective to that."

And in terms of the bombing range Pilot Randy Webb says they do not use live explosives during training exercises.

"No explosives, only steel and concrete to replicate other weapons. All the live drops happen in Utah or Las Vegas."

So the mystery continues, and for Twin Falls residents there are still more questions than answers.

When it comes to these rumbling instances Southern Idaho is not alone. This same phenomena has been reported in Florida, Wisconsin, New York and North Carolina. And so far there are no definitive answers in those states as well.
