ZetaTalk Q&A for February 25, 2012:

My question is regarding the YouTube strange sounds video posted by Gerard yesterday: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUdZGm476yA On the Strange Sounds blog I posted a response as follows: Not trying to discredit anyone on the Montana video/audio. I believe what is recorded. But I'd really be interested in Zeta feedback on it because it reminds me of what happened in Close Encounters of the Third Kind - the musical sounds that the spacecraft emitted. The sound produced in Missoula is what is called in music a major seventh chord. In the key of C it would be C-E-G-B; in this case with an extra underlying G as the first note. I have a hard time believing that anything in nature could create this without help - possibly ET help. The notes are played separately up the scale/chord and then down the scale/chord. Could the Zetas please comment on what the source might be?

SOZT

Missoula lies in a valley between mountain ranges that are riddled with rivers draining the steep mountain sides. If Kiev has multi-tonal trumpets because the reservoir is vibrating, and Belarus has horns because the river there is vibrating, then why should Missoula be exempt? The regions where the vibrating Earth plays music are where water is being vibrated. Elsewhere, it sounds like a roar, like Godzilla rising from the sea and roaming the land. Noise is sound where every frequency is heard. Music is controlled such that harmonics, or coinciding or duplicating frequencies are heard.

That several distinct tones were heard in Missoula, each in turn, only means that the body of water producing them increased its frequency from tone to tone. In Kiev, chords were heard, as more than one arm of the reservoir was set to vibrating. The thrumming or fan beating sound that preceded the Missoula tones was the rock layers being pulled apart, as the N American continent is being pulled into a bow, as we have often explained. As the jerking apart and rebound of the underlying rock layers picked up the pace, the pitchof the music the nearby river produced climbed. Simple as that.

ZetaTalk from the Jan, 21 2012 Q&A:

Strange sounds are heard all over the world! Can the Zetas comment? http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message1756314/pg1 [and from another] My question pertains to the noises, similar to the ones heard in Kiev, happening over the past week all over the world. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZ2ZcmMxehk&feature=channel_video_title Here is a video compilation of some of the places experiencing these noises, some of the videos have been accused of being a hoax, and the essence of my question for the Zetas is; what is going on? I've managed to locate some videos from Australia, posted recently, that seem to verify what others have posted from other users located in different parts of Australia, one of the videos located here. It would appear we are seeing the "Kiev Effect" taking place worldwide now, and only recently on this scale; there is obviously more to this than meets the eye, would the Zetas care to comment?

SOZT

Where initially only a hum, and only in certain notorious parts of the world, rock under stress has become noisy. Known as the Taos hum, the sound of a diesel engine running somewhere underground was an early entry. Then the Seattle drums entered the arena, rhythmic booming which was ascribed to flapping manhole covers. Booms from snapping and heaving rock were reported in the New Madrid region and humming along the St. Lawrence Seaway increased.

But in 2011, it became clear that where we predicted that the Earth would moan during the 5.9 days of rotation stoppage, it was not going to be silent between then and now. The trumpets of Kiev and the horns of Belarus went viral on the Internet, followed quickly by a roar over Tampa Bay that sounded like Godzilla emerging from the sea. Now, in early 2012, this has spread to the drums of Costa Rica and the howl of Alberta and the Borneo snore.

Where is this leading? At least half the Earth, at any given point in time, will be having some sort of tension in its rock. Clapping and grinding fault lines, vibrating bodies of water, trembling rock strata resisting being pulled apart, and snapping rock under compression or being bent. All will be noisy, and the most likely reaction among those who hear it will be to conclude that the End Times have arrived. However known in various cultures around the world, allhave some reference to the coming times. The establishment will be unable to explain away these sounds, and once again the Internet will be sought and will lead inevitably to our explanations.

Is it the mysterious sound of the so-called coming Apocalypse? Some think that the mysterious sound heard in Costa Rica at around 12:30am this morning is exactly that.

Ronny Quintero, a seismologist said the event should be studied at the exact time and location of the anomalies to determine with certainty that there was no earthquake. He added that depending on the location of those who claim they heard the rumble or ”The Hum” it is easy to dismiss the possibility of tectonic movements.

This news has rattled the social web whereas Costa Ricans and the world over are scrambling to figure out what this mysterious sound could have been. Authorities have yet to comment on the subject although OVSICORI, the Costa Rica Volcanologist and Seismologist Organization is saying there is no Earth movements recorded at the time of the strange sound.

Here is a YouTube video showing how it sounded.

It is important to note that this is not the wind nor was it filmed anywhere near the ocean. The sound was heard throughout the entire country from Heredia to Perez Zeledon.

ZetaTalk from the Jan, 14 2012 Q&A:

SOZT
There is a subset of the Caribbean Plate called the Panama Plate, though this subset moves as one with the Caribbean Plate. Nevertheless, there is a fault line running through Costa Rica, and during the incessant pressure of the slow moving S American roll fault lines can pull apart and bang back together again, like clapping. As the recent cold spells in India reveal, the N Pole of Earth is pushed violently away when the Sun is over New Zealand and the magnetic N Pole of Earth (currently over Siberia) comes up over the horizon. This equates to midnight in Costa Rica, which is when the drums were heard. Residents there should get used to these midnight drums, which will be with them for some time.

Weird sound in sky ny canandaigua June 4 2016

Dramatic footage captures three mystery EXPLOSIONS and a flash of light that rocked houses and woke residents in Essex last night as they question if it was a meteorite, fighter jet... or even a UFO
Concerned residents in South East England reported loud bangs last night
The explosions followed flashes of bright light that illuminated sky at 11pm
People took to social media and suggested the noises were caused by a jet
Man who shot footage of explosions claimed a meteorite may be to blame
This mysterious footage captures the series of loud explosions and flashes of bright light that were reported across South East England last night.

The strange noises were heard in Essex and parts of East London and many concerned locals took to social media to look for answers.

One man from Ilford filmed the sky at around 11pm and spotted the eerie flashes of light before capturing the loud bangs, which he said shook his house.
'I have a theory that it was a meteorite,' said the video maker. 'If it had been a land-based explosion there would be damage somewhere but so far no damage.'

'It was too loud to be a firework that's for sure and fireworks don't shake houses. I don't think it's a supersonic aircraft as a sonic boom does not give off light.

'I think it was a meteorite burning up in the atmosphere. This would give off light and cause a sonic boom.'

The Royal Observatory at the Royal Museum of Greenwich discredited this notion, however.

A spokesman told MailOnline: 'This doesn't have the character of a meteor, since such a blast would only occur after a sustained bright light during atmospheric entry - not a quick flash as shown in the video.
'It's also somewhat unlikely that three blasts would be heard. It looks and sounds a little bit more like a firework.

'An object would only be classed as a meteorite if it actually reached the ground - something up in the air like this would be a meteor.

'Our understanding of large meteors and fireballs is that, although they can produce sonic booms and/or loud bangs (in the latter case when they fragment violently), they are more likely to produce a sustained glow for several seconds (which may vary in brightness) as they move across the sky, rather than a single, momentary flash.'

A number of residents took to social media to comment on the explosions and to suggest other possible causes.

The majority claimed it could be a fighter jet breaking the sound barrier, while others even suggested a UFO may have visited the area.

Sam Smart said he heard the explosions from his house in Wanstead, around four miles from where the video maker captured his footage in Ilford.

The 24-year-old advertising graduate said: 'It was too loud to be a firework. It sounded like the sonic boom of a jet to me.'

Another local resident, who lives in nearby Woodford and who wished to remain anonymous, said the loud bangs sounded like 'gunshots'.
Meanwhile on Twitter, one person wrote: 'Hoping the explosion sounds heard in East London/Essex aren't anything serious.'

Another said: 'Just heard three loud booms, like an explosion here in East London. Anyone know anything?'

A spokesman for the Ministry of Defence said that it was 'not aware' of the noises but would be looking into it to see if it was caused by a jet.

The MoD later confirmed: 'We know nothing about it. A sonic boom would suggest there was a foreign plane in our airspace, which was not the case.'

It also added that a jet had not been scrambled in the UK either.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman also confirmed that the force had received calls reporting the loud noises but that they would not be looking into it.

Nick Pope, who used to research UFOs for the MoD, told MailOnline: 'I'm sceptical about the fighter jet theory, as night flying by military jets over built-up areas is unusual, and my understanding is that supersonic flying over the mainland UK is not allowed, in view of the disturbance caused.

'I think the meteor theory is quite likely. Meteors and fireballs entering the Earth's atmosphere at high speed would produce a flash of light and can also generate sound, in the same way as an aircraft can generate a sonic boom.

'If it was a large one, it could split into pieces, which would explain why three flashes were seen. Meteors and fireballs turned out to be the explanation for several spectacular UFO sightings that I investigated while working on the MoD's UFO project.'

Last month panicked people in the Midlands took to social media after two huge explosions were heard around Northampton and Brackley.

It was later reported that the booms were caused by Typhoon jets, which had been scrambled from an RAF base in Lincolnshire to identify an unresponsive aircraft.

Commenting at the time, a Ministry of Defence spokesman said: 'Quick reaction alert Typhoon aircraft were launched today from RAF Coningsby to identify an unresponsive civilian aircraft.

'Communications were re-established and the aircraft has been safely escorted to Cardiff airport.'

Scientists Investigate Mysterious Explosions off Western India (May 3)

Locals at Nivati beach reported explosion-like sounds emanating off the coast on April 7, 10 and 26, which has alarmed residents in nearby areas.

Goa-based National Institute of Oceanography had yesterday said the sounds may be due to existence of geographic fault (crack in the earth's crust) or gas emission.

"A team of scientists from Goa-based National Institute of Oceanography (NIO) travelled to Nivati beach yesterday and went up to 25-30 nautical miles," Sindhudurg District Collector Anil Bhandari told the Press Trust of India today.

"The magnitude of the sound reported on April 26 was high. People came out of their houses fearing it was an earthquake. But the earthquake is ruled out," Mr Bhandari said.

The district administration along with Maharashtra Fisheries Department, Indian Coast Guard, and others held an emergency meeting in last week of April to discuss the issue. Mr Bhandari said the district administration has not asked the locals to vacate the village or stopped the fishermen from fishing, pending scientific investigations.

"There are no warnings issued. We are waiting for the report from NIO which is conducting detailed study on this unusual phenomenon," he said.

NIO's chief scientist Dr Rajiv Nigam had told the Press Trust of India yesterday "it looks like minor geographical fault (crack in the earth's crust) has got activated in the area". "We would like to allay people's fear...there is nothing related to tsunami or any other natural disaster. People should not get panicky," he had said.

"Or it might be due to existence of small gas pockets...it might also be due to eruption of gas. The gas gets accumulated in the mud and when it comes out it makes sound," he said.

 Mystery over early morning 'explosions'

Posted: April 12, 2016
http://www.thanetgazette.co.uk/Mystery-early-morning-explosions/sto...

Mystery surrounds what caused two loud noises early yesterday morning.

Several people in the Palm Bay and Broadstairs said they heard what they described as two "explosions" at 5am.

Different explanations have been rumoured as to what the noises were, including gun shots, controlled explosions by the Army and even "sonic booms" caused by fighter jets.

The Ministry of Defence said it was not aware of any "sonic booms" over the South of England. A spokesman for Thanet council said they had not been told of controlled explosions, adding: "The only thing we can think of is the noises were caused by loud waves."

Palm Bay resident Chris Smee said he was woken up at 5am by what he described as "two explosions, one after the other."

"My immediate thought was someone was firing a shotgun, but they were far louder than that and came from the direction of the coastline."

Jo Calvert-Mindell posted on the Broadstairs Facebook page:" Just heard a loud bang followed by two more - this was at 5am and then 5.01am. Could it be a signal for the coastguard/lifeboat?"

What's up with the latest boom?

http://www.ydr.com/story/news/2016/03/14/whats-up-latest-boom/81781...

Booms heard on Sunday evening prompted at least two calls to York County 911, but what caused the noise remains a mystery.

The calls came from the southwestern part of the county, York County spokesman Carl Lindquist said. Staff at the 911 center made some calls but were unable to confirm any cause.

Mystery booms heard in Rankin County

Sound heard as far away as downtown Jackson

http://www.wapt.com/news/central-mississippi/mystery-booms-heard-in...

PEARL, Miss. —Several people called the 16 WAPT Newsroom Thursday after they heard loud booms in Rankin County.

Mississippi Emergency Management Agency spokesman Greg Flynn said he heard two booms about 8 a.m. as he walked into the office.

“It was loud enough that it made me turn my head,” Flynn said. “I thought it was coming from the (Mississippi) Fire Academy, but there was nothing going on there.”

A caller in Jackson said he heard the boom, which he thought was coming from Pearl, as far away as downtown Jackson.

Another caller said the lights went out briefly between Pearl and Brandon after he heard the boom.

Entergy spokeswoman Mara Hartmann said there was a 3-4 minute transmission-related outage Thursday morning near Old Fannin Road in Flowood that affected industrial customers, but no residential customers. She said that the cause is under investigation.

“It could be linked to that, but we don’t know. Transmission (technicians) will have to walk the lines to find out where it came from,” Hartmann said. “It might have been us. We just don’t know.”

The official source of the sound remains a mystery.

Loud metallic scraping noises heard in Drogheda, Ireland

The Liberal
Mon, 14 Mar 2016 19:41 UTC

Reports have come into us today of some very strange and eerie noises coming out of Drogheda late last night.

The noises were called "UFOs and Aliens" - but no one knows for sure what they were. Some are claiming it was a lorry that crashed, but the noises were reportedly happening for up to two hours.

Explosion Sounds Are Literally Shaking an LA County Town and Nobody Knows the Cause
Posted  March 7, 2016  http://www.vice.com/read/explosion-sounds-are-literally-shaking-an-...
Out of nowhere on Tuesday night, around 8 PM, Alex Arevalos, a student and graphic designer in Alhambra, California, ten miles east of downtown Los Angeles, heard a single, loud thud.

He immediately asked his sister if she'd slapped his bedroom wall. "She said she didn't, so I automatically blamed the train," Arevalos, who lives near train tracks, told VICE.

Then on Thursday around midnight, two similar sounds woke up Arevalos's father, and when father and son spoke about it in the morning, the younger Arevalos became convinced it was something abnormal. "This time as soon as I heard it, and heard the walls shake a bit, I listened for the train, but didn't hear anything," adding, "I can tell the difference now [between] the train and the booms."

Arevalos is far from alone. According to the local news site Alhambra Source, residents first reported hearing the booms on February 16 when a woman named Noelle Dominguez alerted her neighbors to them in a private section of the community social network nextdoor.com. "I know this sounds weird. But since [I've been] living in Alhambra, every other night or so I hear a loud explosion-like noise," she wrote. Soon, other nextdoor.com users shared similar experiences with the booms, according to Alhambra Source.
Two nights later, Alhambra Police Department posted about the booms on Facebook. Just after 8 PM, officers received reports of "a loud explosion heard in the northern end of our city." The police wrote that they've received multiple similar reports in recent weeks, but that "unfortunately, we were unable to locate the origin."

"We are as puzzled as everyone," Jerry Johnson, the Alhambra police sergeant, told VICE. He said two on-duty officers heard the booms recently, and they rushed toward the source, arriving just 90 seconds after the sound dissipated.

"And then nothing," Johnson said.

In the comments of an Alhambra PD Facebook post, one Facebook user named Anthony Ruiz called the booms, "much too loud to be a firework." Another user named Christopher Keller described them as akin to a sonic boom, saying he felt a "pressure wave." But he added that they were too close to be sonic booms. An isolated series of sonic booms shook New Jersey in late January—but that was an isolated incident brought on by several fighter jets breaking the sound barrier around the same time above the area.

Chris Paulson, the administrative services director for the city of Alhambra, also called it a "sonic boom type of sound," made all the more strange by the fact that it's being reported across an unusually wide area. "We've investigated, and it's probably about a mile north to south," he told VICE.

According to Alhambra Source, there are construction projects going on in the area, but the local public works department "does not believe that the projects are the source of the noises." According to Paulson, that's because, "there's simply no construction going on when those noises are heard."

VICE contacted a municipal consulting company called Transtech, an engineering firm that contracts for Alhambra, inspecting safety concerns at city construction projects. Transtech's Alhambra city building official, Ayla Jefferson, told us she had heard of the booms, but has "no knowledge" of their origin.

Meanwhile, the booms continue unabated. For Arevalo, they've become part of life in Alhambra. He described the most recent explosions he heard as "just kind of there." Since he's been living near a train for 13 years, he says he's become accustomed to noise in general, adding that "the only thing affecting my sleep is school."

But not everyone is tuning out the booms. According to Sergeant Johnson, "We're getting calls on this two or three times a day."

"It is a mystery," said Paulson.

Big Booms and noises in the sky going on across the Northeast USA and Canada in the last ten days!

Cause of recurring booms remains a mystery

http://www.newspressnow.com/news/local_news/article_840d991c-edad-5...

GRUNDY COUNTY, Mo. — Unexplained loud booms have been affecting residents around Grundy County for weeks, and the cause has yet to be determined.

“It’s weird because it’s unlike most booming noises you hear,” said Glen Briggs, the emergency management director of Grundy County. “If you hear a car crash or something like that, you can pretty well tell which direction it came from. When I heard it, I couldn’t identity which direction it came from. It resembled thunder, but there were no thunderstorms in the area.”

Trenton residents began reporting their experiences of these booms after they heard it for the first time Feb. 14.

“I instantly made a post on our emergency management Facebook page and asked if anyone else heard it,” Briggs said. “We had close to 100 people comment saying they heard it. Several people said they felt it. They described a loud thud, rattling, some saw flashes of light and smoke.”

Trenton police arrived in a matter of minutes to the area where residents were affected, but didn’t find anything out of the ordinary.

“No one lost power, so we quickly ruled out a transformer explosion,” Briggs said. “That particular one was heard as far as 5 to 7 miles away. Whatever it was, it was very loud, but we we’re never able to identify the source.”

Briggs has been working on the mystery ever since, creating a spreadsheet of the sounds’ potential origin, which falls into one of two categories.

Long Island Residents Call 911 to Report Mystery 'Boom' Sounds

Mar 2, 2016

http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/Long-Island-Mystery-Booms-Poli...

Dozens of residents on Long Island called 911 to report hearing mysterious loud booms Tuesday evening, Suffolk County police say.  Suffolk police said they received numerous calls from residents in Lindenhurst, Copiague, Babylon and West Islip just after 6 p.m.  Police have no knowledge of explosions in the area but are investigating.

The U.S. Coast Guard also said it is looking into the reports.  Resident Samantha Collins of Lindenhurst told NBC 4 New York she was sitting on the couch watching TV when "the whole house started shaking."

"We went outside, and all my neighbors were like, 'Did you hear that, did you hear that?'" she said.

"I just heard boom, like a loud boom, like a plane broke the sound barrier, and I got up and walked out and didn't hear any sirens," he said.

NWS offers theory on loud booms reported in the Sioux Falls area

Feb 26, 2016

http://www.argusleader.com/story/news/crime/2016/02/27/police-inves...

Police are investigating multiple reports of loud booms in Sioux Falls and the surrounding areas.

The National Weather Service said they had not seen any indications of an explosion or other events that would show up on radar, and that there are no storms in the area.

"There's nothing unusual on the radar that would suggest a meteor or a comet," meteorologist Matt Dux said.

However, NWS did offer a possible theory on what could be causing the booms:

"After thinking a bit..one thing could be happening is this. There is a very sharp temperature change not too far off the surface (about 500 ft) tonight due to the warmer air aloft and fast cooling here at the ground. It's possible that as some aircraft are landing that this sound is bouncing off this temperature 'inversion.' It's a theory," NWS said.

Scanner traffic indicated that multiple people had called in to report the booms. Police were investigating reports in Hartford and at 85th Street and Marion Road.

Sgt. Jon Thum said police were unable to find the source of the noises.

People have reported the booms in several areas around Sioux Falls and beyond.

‘Boom’ causes rumblings in Kansasville

http://myracinecounty.com/?p=20940

Kansasville and Dover residents looking for an answer to Saturday’s loud noise are still waiting for an explanation.

Described as an explosion by some and a sonic boom as others, residents near Eagle Lake at about 5:30 p.m. Saturday started phoning 911 regarding an explosion.

The only problem? The Racine County Sheriff’s Department and Kansasville Fire couldn’t find anything.

“We investigated it and nothing found,” said Kansasville Fire Chief Scott Remer. “We have no cause or origin.

“I heard a lot of things about ‘my house shook,’” he added.

Area residents also flooded social media seeking an explanation for what happened. On a local area ‘buy, sell, trade’ list on Facebook, people referred to the noise as something “blowing up” and said the noise shook homes.

Another person later explained there were some fireworks going off, and called the situation “all good.” However, that was about two hours after the initial report.

Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Warden Mike Hirschboeck said ice heaves on the lake could have created a loud booming noise.

Rattling explosion sounds reported over several Northeast Georgia counties

Feb 18, 2016

http://onlineathens.com/mobile/2016-02-18/rattling-explosion-sounds...

Booms so loud they have actually shaken homes were reported over the past two weeks in several Northeast Georgia counties.

Three reports were filed Sunday in the Maysville area of Jackson County, but numerous other reports were made in Hall, Habersham and Madison counties, authorities said Thursday. Several reports were filed the previous week in the Commerce area of Jackson County.

“We’ve had a lot of people saying their houses are shaking and describing it as sounding like a car crash to a tree falling,” Banks County Sheriff’s Sgt. Carissa McFaddin said.

“The radius of where the reports are coming from is very wide, so it’s not a concentrated area,” she said.

“We really do not know what it may have been. I do know we’ve had a number of military jets flying over that day,” she said leading many to believe the explosions are sonic bombs.

“Sonic booms would go over that distance,” she said.

But McFaddin said others have suggested an earthquake, while Jackson County Sheriff Janis Mangum said Thursday some suggested to her it was someone exploding Tannerite, an explosive used to make exploding targets. Tannerite is readily available to the public.

Nadin Humphries, a woman who lives outside Maysville, said Thursday “it sounded like a bomb went off. It shook my house.”

“My son said he is familiar with those cannons they use to get rid of vultures and they make a sound like that,” she said. “We do have a rock quarry down the highway that blasts from time to time, but was the first time I heard something that sounded like a bomb.”

Reports of explosions of an undetermined source are not rare for the area.

“We’ve had these reports before and you don’t find anything,” Mangum said.

In Banks County the sheriff posted the booming mystery on the sheriff’s Facebook page and “it blew up very quickly. We had like 300 comments,” McFadden said.

“Sounds of the Apocalypse” Heard in Nebraska City?

West Island sky trumpets unexplained, though theories abound

February 24, 2016

http://montrealgazette.com/news/local-news/west-island-sky-trumpets...

Some West Island residents were captivated and creeped out by an eerie trumpeting sound that seemed to come from the sky Sunday. No one knows what caused the sound.

Early theories suggested people in Dollard des Ormeaux were hearing echoes of a Pointe-à-Callières Port Symphony. But those events happen at 2 p.m., and the sky trumpets were reported during the evening. Would sound have carried that far anyway? It’s about 25 kilometres from the Old Port to D.D.O., and sound travels at Mach 1, so … we don’t know. Other atmospheric conditions would have to be factored in.

The Montreal Gazette asked a spokesperson at Environment Canada whether there any been any unusual meteorologic conditions Sunday night. “Not that we’re aware of. There were no reports of anything in the Montreal area.”

Witnesses to the sound say there was little to no wind at the time.

Montreal Gazette Facebook followers had a field day with the mystery. “Don’t worry, Quebec will find a way to tax it,” posted one reader. “Could they be clearing snow out there?” suggested a reader. From another, what would seem to be the most obvious answer: “The wind does that sometimes, like with a pan flute.” Then from the bottom of the earth: “We heard it here in Australia on Sunday. … Birds went ballistic. Whether it’s atmopsheric radio waves or it is a warning, I know what side of the fence I would rather be on.”

Southwest Quebecers say they hear strange trumpets sounds in the sky: The dogs ‘are going nuts’

http://news.nationalpost.com/news/canada/southwest-quebecers-say-th...

Feb 22, 2016

Residents of Dollard des Ormeaux, Quebec, were distracted Sunday night by an eerie noise they said sounded like trumpets somewhere in the sky.

“All the dogs in the neighbourhood are going nuts,” D.D.O. resident Adria Morrell posted to Facebook around 10 p.m. She recorded the noise, which sounded like wind through wires or wind chimes.

There was no wind at the time, she said, and soon after she posted, other West Island residents recounted their own spooky aural encounters. The sound was reported to have lasted more than an hour.

This sort of event isn’t unheard of. Similar things have happened in Montana, Australia, Germany and British Columbia.

Recurring Booms in Missouri Remain a Mystery (Feb 29)

Unexplained loud booms have been affecting residents around Grundy County for weeks, and the cause has yet to be determined.

"It's weird because it's unlike most booming noises you hear," said Glen Briggs, the emergency management director of Grundy County. "If you hear a car crash or something like that, you can pretty well tell which direction it came from. When I heard it, I couldn't identity which direction it came from. It resembled thunder, but there were no thunderstorms in the area."

Trenton residents began reporting their experiences of these booms after they heard it for the first time Feb. 14.

"I instantly made a post on our emergency management Facebook page and asked if anyone else hear it," Briggs said. "We had close to 100 people comment saying the heard it. Several people said they felt it. They described a loud thud, rattling, some saw flashes of light and smoke."

Trenton police arrived to the area where residents were affected in a matter of minutes, but didn't find anything out of the ordinary.

"No one lost power, so we quickly ruled out a transformer explosion," Briggs said. "That particular one was heard as far as 5 to 7 miles away. Whatever it was, it was very loud, but we we're never able to identify the source."

Briggs has been working on the mystery ever since, creating a spreadsheet of the sounds' potential origin, which falls into one of two categories.

"There's a handful of evidence that says this has to be man-made. And there's a handful of evidence that says no it's got to be natural," Briggs said. "But we don't have enough evidence either way to say is this an earthquake, or is this someone blowing something up?"

Briggs said those in the geological sciences and engineering department at Missouri University of Science and Technology have supplied their expertise to help officials find the source. They've investigated whether the noises could be tied to groundwater, fracking fluid or the shifting of tectonic plates.

"One interesting geological instance that has occurred in our area before was when some sort of gas was coming out of the ground for no apparent reason," Briggs said. "They may be correlated, but no one has been able to confirm that a boom has happened in an area where we had reports of gas coming out of the ground."

The timing of these noises also varies considerably. Whether it's a weekday, weekend, 4 p.m. or 1 a.m., the noises have been occurring at random.

"There is no pattern to them," Briggs said. "There does seem to be a slight tendency for them to be occurring from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m., but using that for an edge on this mystery is very slight."

Briggs said residents in surrounding counties, including Mercer and Sullivan, also have reportedly heard the booms.

Anyone who thinks they may have heard the booms is asked to post their experience to the "Grundy County Emergency Management" Facebook page. Briggs asks residents to post as much description as possible, including time, exact location and any other related details.

"Even if you think it's something very trivial, like smelling something after one of the booms," Briggs said, "let us know what it smelled like. If it's the smell of a firecracker going off or something like that, it can help us point to it being man-made. If it's an unfamiliar smell that's foreign, maybe it's something natural."
