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.

Big Booms Still Startling Florida Residents (Mar 3)

Many heard "sonic boom" like noises and the Collier County Sheriff's Office was flooded with emergency calls on Sunday.

Hysler had never heard anything like it.

"I was outback with my wife, sitting in the lanai and then all of a sudden, boom!" Hysler said.

These boom-like noises are the talk of the town—ones that just about everyone heard on Sunday.

"I kind of heard a slight rumble, then I heard a louder rumble and the windows started to shake" said Bill D'Antuono of Naples.

"It was like an explosion almost, off to the distance. I didn't know what it was" said Dylan Glass of North Naples.

The Collier County Sheriff's Office says they received dozens of phone calls around 11:00 a.m.—one after another.

"I live on 3rd Avenue Southwest and 15 minutes ago there was a huge explosion. It like shook our sliders and shook part of our house," said one caller.

"Two loud booms we heard coming southwest of Marco Island, is that sonic booms or is someone blasting?" said another.

Less than two weeks ago, the Naval Air Station in Key West had jets training over the gulf, something that most likely contributed to earth shaking noises then.

NBC2 reached out to representatives at the Air Station in Key West—they said they had no training on Sunday.

Many thought it could've been "blasting" from a nearby developer.

Minto Communities—a company developing the new Isles of Collier Preserve in East Naples has a permit—but officials there say they only blast during the week.

"I even heard two blasts living down on Marco Island on Sunday, and those have nothing to do with anything we're doing in Naples" said William Bullock, Vice President of Minto Communities.

With both jet training and blasting out of the question, Sunday's earth-rattling noise remains a mystery for now.

Mysterious Ongoing  'Explosion' Sounds Alarm Residents in Flint, Michigan (Mar 3)

Something mysterious is spooking residents on the eastern edge of the city.

It comes unannounced. It shakes the walls and the floors and freaks out the pets.

People who have experienced it all describe it the same way.

"Explosions," said Juan Lara, a 67-year-old man who lives near Center Road and Davison Road.

Lara and others said it's been happening off and on for about a year. It usually happens in the afternoon, maybe once every few weeks. But, lately, it's more frequent.

"(It's) loud," Lara added. "I don't know where they're coming from."

Nobody does.

Not the neighbors, not the fire department, not the power company.

"I haven't heard anything like that," said John Babb, Flint Fire Department battalion fire chief.

Fire crews haven't responded to anything that matches what residents are describing, Babb said. And if anything was blowing up, firefighters would be out there.

He wondered if it was maybe a power transformer or some activity under a manhole.

If either were the case, Consumers Energy would know, Babb said.

They didn't.

"We’re not aware anything on our system," said Dan Bishop, a Consumers spokesman.

Whatever it is, Sheila Kopek knows she's not imagining it.

"It shakes you, you feel it," said Kopek, 34.

She's been hearing it "at least one every couple weeks" since the summertime. She and her husband thought they were fireworks at first.

It shakes the walls in their home. It comes up from the earth like a crack of thunder, except at a lower pitch, she said.
Hester_strange noises Sheila Kopek, 34, has experienced the explosion-type noise that she says shake her home in Flint.

"It's loud enough that it will make you jump," Kopek said. "It's weird."

Mystery Booms Near San Francisco (Feb 21)

Alameda police have received reports of "kaboom!" noises on the Island over the past few days, but the source of the loud sounds remains a mystery.

An Alameda Police Department dispatcher told Patch that the APD has received three reports of booming noises since Monday but has not been able to find the cause of the noises.

Officials at the Coast Guard installation on Government Island also said they don't know the source of the noises. The Coast Guard normally alerts Alameda police to any scheduled military ceremonies with cannon fire — a sound that's prompted questions about noise from Alamedans in the past.

About two dozen readers reported hearing — or hearing about — the "kabooms," and reports came from several areas of Alameda, from Bay Farm Island to the West End.

"So what was that big Kaboom that kaboomed around 4:40 yesterday?"

"I heard it, too! Sounded way bigger than a firework...."

Mystery 'Loud Booms' Felt, Heard Over South Carolina (Feb 20)

Multiple reports of loud booms in several Midlands neighborhoods beginning around 3:45 p.m. Wednesday.

We heard from worried residents in Sumter, Wedgefield, Manning, and Bishopville. The noise was so loud that windows rattled and homes shook.

Reports also came out of Summerton, Eastover, Mayesville, Lexington, Lugoff, Camden and Sandy Run.

We made several calls to try and find out what caused the sounds, and the State Emergency Management Agency says it wasn't an earthquake.

Shaw Air Force Base hasn't reported any unusual flying activity and Lynn Douglas with the Columbia Airport says she knows of no sonic booms in the Midlands on Wednesday.

Ongoing Reports of Loud Booms Rattle Oklahoma Residents, Baffle Authorities (Jan 21) -

A series of loud booms heard in and around Elk City are a mystery to authorities.

The latest booms were heard Monday afternoon just before the Martin Luther King Jr. Day march, which began at Ackley Park.

A Daily Elk Citian reporter who heard the sounds said it came from east of the park, in a set of three and each about 10 minutes apart.

Elk City Fire Chief Rick Shelton has heard reports of it over several days, but is still unsure of what it could be.

"It kind of concerns people. It's loud enough it shakes windows on houses," Shelton said.

New ZetTalk, Jan 19, 2013 Q and A

Thank you. :)

‘Explosions’ Out East? I was wondering if there is something more happening in Montauk, East Hampton as this seems a bit strange.  East Hampton is a peninsula bordered on the south by the Atlantic Ocean, to the east by Block Island Sound and to the north by Gardiners Bay, Napeague Bay and Fort Pond Bay.
I'm not sure if it falls under the Booms category on the ning
but the article says "Blasts ‘occur without warning and leave no evidence."  and have been going on for more than a year although not during the summer. (Why)  I recognize that the bow stretch is pulling tighter everyday with adjustments in between.  Surely if this were a manmade occurence there would be evidence I would think.  Is something more happening that the Zetas can share with us? 
[and from another]
January 17, 2013.  The sound of explosions started over a year ago, with what seemed to be professional-grade fireworks. Now the culprits seem to have moved on to pipe bombs, but the source of the alarming noises besieging remains a mystery. According to East Hampton Town police, the apparent explosives have been set off in a number of areas of the hamlet, including Second House Road, the golf course at the Montauk Downs State Park, West Lake Drive, and several beaches. The explosives occur without warning and leave no evidence.  The noises sound like a house exploding.

The blasts usually occur at night around 10 pm, but there have been a few during the day. In summer, the noises stopped.  Some have speculated that the noises are coming from the Long Island Power Authority’s substation on Industrial Road. If a piece of equipment failed it would make a loud popping sound and would also cause electrical outages, none of which have been reported. Police have found no evidence, such as burn marks or burned mailboxes.

Close examination of the rock strata holding East Hampton shows that the strata is different than the strata under the rest of New York State. The bowing of the N American continent, and the occasional release of tension along the St Lawrence Seaway when that jerks open to some degree, create a back and forth action along the rock strata edges. Rock strata of a homogeneous nature tend to bond, and resist ripping. But along the borders where different strata meet, this tight bond is missing. This is allowing the Hamptons to hear snapping rock now and then, the booms which are so familiar in many parts of the globe. Why does this ease in the Summer? Heat swells rock and creates a tighter hold along the boundary, rock fingers having more friction and thus preventing motion.

Prior ZT:
These matters are related to the rock strata, which bonds or breaks, as we have stated. There is a natural break in the rock strata holding Ohio, along the Ohio River and into its headwaters, as can be seen. Why should Chicago be affected? There is a natural break in the rock strata between the New Madrid and Chicago also, a weakness, which will rupture with the New Madrid.

Chico Police: Unknown What was the Source of Reported Explosions

POSTED: 11:57 AM Jan 13 2013
On Sunday Chico Police said it's unknown what was the source of the reported explosions on Saturday night.

Police said they were flooded with 911 calls round 10:30 p.m. on Saturday night with reports of loud explosions.

They said some of the calls came from 8th Avenue and Ivy as well as other locations.

Chico Police as well as the Chico Fire Department investigated but were unable to locate any clues as to what caused the explosions.

On Sunday Police said they have no leads to investigate the incident further.


Last night around 10pm, I was watching tv with the lights off in the house. Suddenly a green flash that looked like it came from my backyard was followed by the sound of a blast. I got up and went out back to see if something had happened but couldn't see anything. Would really like to know what it was. Sounded like a large cherry bomb

We were outside and heard a "sonic boom" no clue what it was....

That was no cherry bomb, and certainly not a sonic boom. It WAS, however, a VERY large explosion! I'm on Citrus, and had friends as far away as River Road say they had heard it. I thought maybe a meth lab exploded, or a propane tank.

It was loud enough to make the windows rattle, and made me jump about a foot off my chair!

We sure heard it! We're over by the Flyers station.
