Latest Disaster Information from Across the Country
Moderator: North Idaho Patriot
I heard them on Tuesday, December 4th around 4:30 pm as did many people around the Valley. It was two sets of three booms. Last I had heard, these had been heard from Camp Verde Az all the way to Flagstaff Az and everywhere in between. It is about 50 miles from the south end of the Valley to Flagstaff and about 5000ft change in elevation. None of the local law enforcement agencies have an answer as to what it was. I have heard explosions before having spent two years in Iraq, and I have a hard time imagining the size of an explosion that could shake windows for such a long distance.
Nothing here but we have the black helos go over sometimes. Not to far away from the huge airport here and north of us is a guard base. One day one was flying down the interstate toward me, never seen that before or since and that sure puts the fear of God in one. Ours go over at night and also the big propellor driven airplanes. Man do the 2 of them make a racket, shakes the house sometimes.
But no other booms other then some kid now and then wrecking out here and running into a tree.
I am so happy to have found this website. I live in Albany, NY and heard an extremely loud boom the other day. I wish that i had written down what the date was, it was within the past week and a half, and it occurred between 9-11:30 AM. I was sleeping very soundly when all of a sudden, i heard a supersonic noise. It did not sound like thunder, it sounded like a bomb going off. My window, which is pretty thin, rattled very hard and I awoke really fast. My first thought was literally "terror attack". I looked out the window and there was nothing, no rain and nothing unusual. No one else mentioned it, I thought i was the only person who heard it. This is really freaking me out now. Now that i have read some articles about this happening in other areas... I really want answers.
A couple weeks ago we heard booms, but around here.. hard to say what. Power plant makes weird noises sometimes. Folks down in,the hollars make acetylene / balloon b***s for fun. Maybe really big, big guns. (didn't sound like that really). Flat boom, no reverb, almost felt as my h as heard. Ds heard for several days before I was home to hear.
Happiness makes up in height for what it lacks in length.
I heard it from inside the house, didn't know what to make of it...Sounded kinda like sonic booms you get from the space shuttle. My windows didn't seem to shake Both dogs went and hid under the bed, they didn't bark at all not sure why on that either very strange. My cat didn't show up till hours later which is also unusual.

Read on the Texas Storm Chaser facebook thread that some people heard a boom right before experiencing ground tremmers in the Ft Worth area today. Don't think an earthquake has been confirmed yet.
I'm just north of Albany and for the first time today heard that strange boom, too. I can't believe these aren't being mentioned on the local news at all. I know I'm not the only one who heard it because the folks next door came running out of their house, and my cat spent the next few hours hiding under the bed. What gives? Has anyone learned anything more about it?
I thought fracking was a likely answer, but this was Saturday afternoon.
Must be a midwestern phenomenon. I've seen nor heard anything like that in this area, Course, there is no fracking going on here either... as some have postulated might be the cause.
You know times are bad in America when GW Bush's presidency starts looking good..
Strange Booms.......I hear them in Mont. too, and some times feel the vibrations from them as they hit the concrete floor of my house. I have heard them sporadically for the past 9 years, and at all hours of the day and night. At first I suspected blasting under ground or a farmer blasting out tree stumps or someone??? tunneling deep in the earth not far from my location. In recent weeks the frequency has increased but I have not checked it with U.S.G.S. for tremors or small quakes lately. There could be a number of causes and to narrow it down would be difficult and very time consuming. There have been a few in the past few weeks in my area. I suspect if they are nation wide, one of the very possible causes is tectonic friction between the N. American Continental Plate and the Mantel of the earth as our plate moves in a W x NW direction at a speed of about 1" per year, and encounters resistance which builds pressure until "something gives" and the pressure is suddenly released, or is the faulting (cracking) of the North American plate caused by uplift from the sublimation of the Pacific plate slipping beneath the N. American Plate. When there is a lot of resistance in the west it cause Mountain building, which is not noticeable by humans because of erosion by quakes, wind and rain, glaciers and wide temperature variations are always cracking the rock from expansion and contraction and are constantly keeping up with the rise of the Rocky Mountain Ranges. It could also be related to recent geological activity in Yellowstone Park. If so, as long as they continue, I think the pressure is being released in small amounts often enough to prevent a major build up, which would result in a major earthquake. It might be annoying at times, but I don't get excited unless things shake a little, and I haven't felt one like that since the small quake in Idaho back in the early to mid 1980s near Challis, Idaho. Damage was very minimal. We get lots of small imperceptible tremors almost daily which is a good thing...pressure being released often. "-)
