Mysterious booms rattle homes, scare livestock in Oklahoma

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- A spate of mysterious booms that has been shaking central Oklahoma returned for a second day Friday, again rattling houses and frightening livestock.

Oklahoma Geological Survey research seismologist Austin Holland said a series of booms, much like a sonic boom, rattled the Norman area starting at 11:19 a.m. Friday. Numerous others had been reported Thursday in the same area at about the same time.

Friday's booms weren't "quite as frequent" as Thursday's, Holland said. "It's quite interesting."

The windows of Anthony Young's home in the town that's the outskirts of Oklahoma City rattled. "We thought some nut was out here, you know, with explosives," Young told KOCO-TV. "It sounded like thunder, you could feel the ground shake, but it was nothing like an earthquake"

Both Holland and National Weather Service meteorologist Matthew Day didn't have an explanation for the booms.

No earthquakes have been recorded in the area, Holland said, noting that "we would have seen them on our seismic stations in the area." And it's unlikely that it's due to a drilling process known as fracking, he said, because the booms were heard and felt over a wide area including Norman, Edmond and Shawnee.

Holland's best guess: It must have been something just above the surface of the earth or in the atmosphere.

Day, who's based in Norman, said a phenomenon known as cryoseisms also isn't likely. Cryoseisms, or "frost quakes," occur when water quickly freezes in soil or rock, then expands and cracks.

"There are some stories going around that's what it was, but based on the research we've done here, it doesn't appear what people heard is related to the cryoseism phenomena," Day told The Norman Transcript. "There's not enough moisture, and the temperatures are not cold enough. That happens in areas where you have a lot of water flowing through a lot of rock," Day said.

"We don't know what it was, we just know what it is not," according to Day.

Holland said the booms occurred on generally regular interval, initially occurring 40 to 60 seconds apart, then about 20 seconds apart.

"It's a mystery to us as well," he said.

Quite so. I think there have been a spate of strange noise reports, here and abroad.

So it's not just you, Sev, unless it is just you making all those sounds.

So how are you doing it???

Its an unfortunate side effect of teleporting. When you materialize it forces the atmosphere away at super sonic speeds.
I need to do a minor tweak that shifts the exact amount of atmosphere that is being displaced back to the point of origin.

I'm pretty close to a solution.

Something else that has been going on worldwide are these megacrymeteors. Bowling ball sized hunks of ice falling out of the sky for no apparent reason like a storm or something. One went through a guys roof in Chicago just the other day.

I guess it is another sign of GW... ice falling from the sky.


The founding fathers set in place a system where every man was King and every President, including George Washington, has worked to take your rights away, to tax you into slavery, to divide you on political/social and economic lines and to make sure you never find out that your ancestors were King for a day.

This is down the road from Sev.

Investigation underway into booms, ground shaking in East TN
Posted: Jan 07, 2015 9:03 PM CST
Updated: Jan 08, 2015 9:42 PM CST
By News Channel 11 Staff


GREENE COUNTY, TN (WJHL) - Have you felt the ground shake followed by a loud boom this week?

You're not the only one.

Tennessee Emergency Management Agency Executive Officer Dean Flener confirmed Thursday that Morristown Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) had reports of the boom sound Tuesday that came from a 1,000 square-mile area.

Flener said the boom Tuesday was non-geologic in nature and said the source of the boom was not tracked to the Oak Ridge area.

He also said that TEMA had not received any direct calls from citizens about Tuesday's boom.

"Hamblen County has had reports for booms since 2013," Flener said. "In fact, the Center for Earthquake Research (CERI) in Memphis has placed seismic equipment in Hamblen County to try and pinpoint the source, either geologic or atmospheric, but has not come to any conclusions."

Just before 8 p.m. Wednesday, multiple law enforcement agencies in Greene County said they received several reports of a booming sound that coincided with the ground shaking and even windows rattling.

Even Greene County EMA Director Bill Brown said he felt the ground shake in Mosheim at the scene of the Appalachian Forest Products fire.

"We've had reports of ground shaking from the southern to the northern end of the county," Brown told News Channel 11.

Brown said he was certain the reports were not related to the the fire.
He at first thought it could be an earthquake, an assumption made by several people who contacted News Channel 11 Wednesday night. The USGS earthquake map showed a 2.4 magnitute earthquake Tuesday night at 8:09 p.m..

On Thursday, TEMA said it had not received calls from the public in Greene County after the Wednesday night earthquake.


Don't believe everything you think.
