CBS 5 News Arizona.. Dec 5th:

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.”

I live in NW Altadena near Lincoln & Loma Alta Dr & on last evening, Tuesday – Dec 4, 2012, I kept hearing ‘loud boom’ sounds every 10-15 minutes.

Another said in a comment.. 
My family heard the loud boom’s throughout the night also. It sounded like small sonic booms that rattled the windows. They continued throughout the night till around 2:00 a.m. Would love to know what the noises were, they were a bit startling.

WPRI News Rhode Island.. Dec 4th 

Reports of the phantom boom kept crews busy in both Barrington and Warwick after residents reported hearing the strange disruption around 11:30 p.m.

“It shook the windows and made my neighbors alert too. The only way to describe it was like a single loud ‘boom’ noise that sounded somewhat like an explosion,”

Plainsman News Alabama.. Dec 4th 

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.

WJBF 6 News Georgia.. Dec 6th 

Columbia County EMA director Pam Tucker tells WJBF News Channel 6, that quarry blasting and earthquakes have been ruled out as causes of loud booms and rumblings in Columbia County.
There have been several loud booms reported in the county over the last couple of days.
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 and the road and sidewalks near his home are now cracked.

      Nice! Very close to the exact lines of the North American Craton! Check out the next to last map on this page: The map is above: Precambrian provinces in North America, with dates.

      Who says that the Mayan Calendar is a sham? Something’s going on with our Earth with the sinkholes, loud earthshaking booms… check out the Craton map for yourselves!

        The huge deposit of methane hydrate is being melted by the high temp and high pressure crude seeping into it from the BP deep well disaster. The methane is spreading out through underground tributaries that have been left empty from extracting petrochemicals. The whole Gulf State region is in big trouble! Look up Linda Newkirk’s methane disaster warnings at prophecies org

        • Mayhem

          In order to do my bit to assuage fear I want to say one thing about explosive gases. In this case methane.

          Sorry. Fire 101= Fuel + Ignition+ Catalyst. Yes? Replace catalyst with O2 and explosion for fire if it helps. All fuels burn at a known rate just like bullet speed.

          Methane can not find Oxygen quickly enough to go all nuclear. A flame will reach a critical size and stop being an explosion and just a flame. No good for any one standing nearby of course.

          You’d have to add extra O2 to get really spectacular results I think.

    • katlady

      We are hearing them in arkansas too! The news is telling us it’s cannons to scare birds away at a landfill….which nobody is buying that story!

      • Marti

        The govnmt is digging tunnels under Arkansas……Check out Jesse Venturas last Conspiracy Theory show.

    • stormalong

      probably that nibiru planet that does not exist

      • Mayhem

        Nibiru can kiss my ars…. :razz:

        There is a known galacyic alignment coming up though. :idea: Long story short.

        Our galaxay amazingly disc shaped. We wobble in a Yin and Yang phaze either side of the equator. We are about to cross this theoretical point just as the Mayans say.

        It’s gonna get wild hang on tight but Planet earth has done this millions if not billions of times before and it will be okay in the long run.

        And then an Ice Age commeth. :shock:

        I agree gummints through mad science may well be trying to alter weather. They will not succeed to any substantive degree.

        Sure, HAARP, could be making all the noises and stuff for all I really know but I doubt it could make the ground rumble significantly.

        Haarp can kiss me in the same place Nibiru was offered. I suggest watching the onion discuss the biggest rock then have a bit of a think about mans arrogance.

    • CosmicKiwiPerth

      This stuff is not funny anymore hey? About time mainstream media covered it a bit more. We hear nothing of it in Australia, If they are keeping quiet it could be man made.. Ie; survival tunnels. Thats the prob with the media, it`s run by the powers that be.. Might cancel my paper delivery. Ps; Nasty quake happening in Japan an hr or so ago.. A.J. West Oz

    • SullyLuther512

      I live in Bayside, NE Queens NY. Last night, at around 10pm or so, my wife and I heard what sounded like Macy’s 4th of July fireworks, but with only sound. The booming sounds were coming from the west of our location. Perhaps these were the same sounds that were heard elsewhere.

    • CGAnnon

      every night we hear booms in the distance, started about a month ago roughly once a week, not it’s nightly. we live in kck.

    • Don't be hating!

      Sounds like the ELITE are building more tunnels underground.

      Could be the Magnetic Earth Changes and the stress the Sun is putting the Earth

      Could be underground Fracking the ELITE is terribly working on to disstabalize the fault line

      Could be a War going underground between the ELITE and other dimensional (Good)beings

      Or I can be making all this crap up

    • Quantum Kev

      Wow, this is really starting to turn into something that cannot be ignored or dismissed, isn’t it? I live in Arizona, and in a video on CBS 5 (the local affiliate) one of the Campe Verde residents – and one who looked clean, sober and credible – said that he got the strong impression that the booms were coming from underground… DEFINITELY makes me wonder. Something is going on…

      • kandras

        Yea we live in Camp Verde and it was definitely coming from the ground, shook out entire house and set all the dogs off in the neighborhood. We felt it for 22 sq miles in our valley

    • soundbooms

      how can i report it happening in my area? I live in northern NJ and I’ve been hearing them daily at all random times. often at 3am.

      I wanna say that it sounds like someones blowing upsomething underground. it shakes my house. it sounds thunderous, but with a different tone because I do believe its happening beneath the surface, whatever it is.

      And many people in my town have been hearing it as well. Who do I contact to report it?

      • SullyLuther512

        That is almost the exact time my daughter has been waking up these last two weeks. Again, my wife said that her friends with infants have been experiencing similar sleep disturbances.

    • gloria

      I live in RI, and the loud boom was heard all across the bay. Strange that the reporting is not happening at all.

    • SullyLuther512

      I would also like to add that our 6-month old daughter has been waking up at the same time every night these last two weeks, which is unusual; she’s been a sound sleeper from 1 month on. When speaking to friends, I was told that their infants have been getting up with similar disturbances to their sleep cycle; all in the Eastern Queens/LI area. It may be pure coincidence, but it is odd.

    • Str8Talker

      DutchSinse has caught alot of flack about the Ancient North American Craton… ancient volcanic fields in California and ancient volcanic areas in the Deep South sending up steam plumes at sunset.
      Yeah… seems far fetched. Problem is… 2 viewers proved the ancient california fields are reactivating by a video they shot… satellites are catching steam plumes like clockwork happening at sunsets only… and now folks are all feeling & hearing “Booms” all along the theoretical boundaries of the ancient North America Craton?
      HELLO?!!! What does it take to wake up folks these days? These things are all “EFFECTS” due to an unknown stress on our Earth’s core and crust… and yep, weather too. IT’S ALL CONNECTED… can’t help but be interwined!
      It’s not a time to panic or worry… it’s a time to get a game plan together… stop talking… and starting thinking about how to ride all this out. It can’t help but continue messing with our economy. If you know Jesus… stop worrying & do your best. If you don’t, there’s still time… your choice. Either way… prepare for shortages and scared folks… regardless of whether its a manmade issue or a natural event.
      The worst position to be in is being caught off guard… with no food, with no water and no plan B. Prepare yourselves mentally, emotionally and spiritually for what’s coming ahead. It seems the tempo of all these events continues to grow. Should get pretty exciting in 2013!

      Hello Community,
      I currently live in Virginia and It was probably around 3:30 Pm Est time today me, my fiance and mother felt our house shake. It was mistaken for Thunder at first but then 15 minutes later we heard and felt the shaking again…Something is definitely going on. Not To Mention there have been lots of chemtrail activity in the last couple of days…Hope my information was useful.

    • begone

      Ok folks move along now there’s nothing to see here. well that’s what the media will tell you anyway.
      Im in Tasmania and here too you can here booming and quite often thunderous rumblings from the ground basically all day where i live which is outside of any cities and it seems these noises are all over the world and all you have to do to hear them is listen which of course is very hard to do an any city as there is just too much noise hence the vast majority of these noises are herd either at night time or in smaller communities where it is much quieter but now these booms are getting much more frequent and louder therefor just a matter of time till everybody hears and feels them and hopefully when that happens it may just start to snap peoples minds out from there autopilot lives and hopefully more so rather then going into mass panic people will grab hold of the steering wheel and figure out what is truly important and yes as much as most don’t want to hear it or think about it but we all know what and who i am talking about. Now i don’t want to frighten those whose heart are weak but i have just been hit with a thought that perhaps because of our sun outrageous activities these days and other possible celestial object near Earth that maybe our very own core has destabilized causing it to shrink or even a possibility of it imploding in the near future could very well be the cause of all the sink holes all the booms and rumblings and earthquakes and the shifting of the earths crust as the outer layers of the Earth starting from the core collapse due to its shrinking thus causing the entire Earth to roll too and fro like a drunkard which it is certainly doing. the question is how much longer till that Earth shattering moment for it would all happen in a mere moment and for when that moment occurs only God knows but it is very obvious by reading your comments on this that we all are starting to realize that something major is taking place on and in the Earth as we speak and to be honest i am glad for all the filth of the Earth will be wiped away unfortunately the few pieces of true beauty that remain on the planet also will perish but it must be done. also for those whom know of Gods word he states very clearly that all evil shall be cast into the lake of fire and now if we look at it from a geological point of view well whats beneath the Earths crust people? beneath the crust is a layer of magma and molten rock. does that not describe a lake of fire. therefor if the crust completely destabilizes and simply falls apart beneath our very feet all will indeed fall into this said lake of fire thus the question when the ground gives way will Christ take your hand and stop you from falling or will you fall as at that very moment everything that anyone has ever accomplished in life be it major wealth or world records or even the control over people will mean nothing for it is only he who can save you not your money not your government but only Christ can and will gladly lift you up. Please people while there is still time you can prevent yourself from falling with the very ground we walk on. I am no scientist or geologist so no i do not have physical evidence of this but only the words that my father who is most high puts in my heart. 21/12/2012 is not the end people but still it is a date of significance and i believe our sun will play a major roll in that date but still what i spoke of before is soon to follow. i know you all too can see it so don’t expect truthful answers from the ones whom we think to rely on for the desperately need the money to flow till the last second. May god be with you and you with him.

      I live in a small east texas town and today getting out of my car i heard a growling sound, i thought a dog was behind me so i turned quickly and of course nothing was there. the growling became more of a thunder sound but it seem to be coming from under my feet, in the ground. I don’t belive the world will end this month, i don’t believe aliens are coming to rescue us, or harvest us, and if PlanetX was coming i think more people would be seeing it by now. i do however believe this earth and especially the US is long overdue for a large widespread disaster that will stop life as we know it. no more cell phones or 50 inch tv’s, its not going to matter what you drive, or how much money you make, its a little scary but, as the song goes, I will survive :razz:

    • Federalist

      Currently the government is shutting down access to allot of caves in the US. Maybe they are getting ready for the final days?

    • Awakenow2

      I believe in the God of the Bible, those of you who have not should look at the hollow earth theory, vril, fallen angels and the occult. The enemy has a plan that is coming to a head. Things are going to get really weird but God is in control

    • Searcher109

      The magnetic north pole is moving NW very rapidly or else the earth’s crust is sliding SE depending on how you look at it. I believe these booms come from deep earth changes as the magnetic fields reorient themselves.

    • zeus

      incoming meteors will be more frequent,as in the texas incident the other day. geminid meteor shower will probably produce a tunguska siberia 1908 type event somewhere in usa west coast areas or over london or belfast.

      • Jasmine

        What makes you think a meteorite is going to slam into the west coast OR London OR Belfast. Why those three places?

        Oh, now I get it. You’re Zeus. From Mt. Olympus you can see everything that’s coming. :wink:

      This is happening on and off in Montana too. Many people in the SW part of Montana near the towns of Butte and Helena have been hearing these same sounds from underground. At first we had to wonder if it was caused by the collapsing of old mining tunnels underneath both cities. Butte has approx. 1000 miles of old mining tunnels beneath it as a consequence of the copper, gold and silver mining done from the 1860′s thru the 1970′s. When the mines shut down in the 60′s and 70′s they let Berkeley Pit fill up with polluted water which in turn has flooded many if not most of the old tunnels beneath the city. You can google Berkeley Pit or Butte, Montana Mining History and get an idea for yourselves of what is below that city. It’s rather scary. Helena has many old tunnels underneath it as well that were made by gold mining but later were used for bootleg liquor and Opium Dens. Some of these still exist beneath this town and were sealed up in the 1930′s. They have not been explored since but one can see the old sealed up entrances under some of the older 19th century buildings here in Helena. I’d love to get into them! We have all thought that these might be making the booming, thundering sounds as they collapsed or something but there are no sinkholes or anything showing up. So, we are all wondering what these sounds and vibrations are from too. We are on an semi-active earthquake fault so perhaps that’s the answer. If so, that’s obviously not a great sign. After the horrible quakes of 1935 in Helena, Montana, no one wants to see or rather feel that fault becoming active again. I wish there was an answer for all of us here in SW Montana on what these noises, etc. are. Then again, I’m loathe to find out, too.

      • Dizzied

        That is absolutely wild. I’ve heard it here in Philipsburg, MT, too. I thought maybe I was crazy…

      We heard a big explosion Monday night Dec 10, 2012 that shook our whole house. We live in the country outside of Charleston, SC and we heard a similar explosion about a month ago. Both times we were concerned that maybe someones propane tank blewup; but no fires were ever seen or reported. We lived in Alaska for 15 years and experienced all kinds of earthquakes on a regular basis, but we have never experienced anything like this. very strange

    • Katnea

      I just talked to my 71 year old step father who lives in Denton, NEBRASKA and he told me that he too had heard a loud booming (sonic?) type noise in the late afternoon/early evening hours a few days ago. So the booming noise could of happened around the 6th – 10th of December 2012?

      Anyway…. he went on to tell me that he went outside to see what caused this noise as he thought that the 2nd and 3rd level wooden decks he had built many years ago had crashed to the ground! He also said all the dogs in the neighborhood went crazy with non-stop barking for about 25 min!

      12/13/2012 – Wallsburg, UT
      Last night my husband and I were getting ready for bed it was around 10PM and we heard a loud BOOM noise and then the whole house shook for a few seconds. I looked out side and you could see stars on one half of the sky and the other half was black but no thunder lightning storm I could see, also where we live is back tucked away in a valley of a small town so no construction or city noises here. Very confused what it could have been? I see others have mentioned this same experience but in other states, could it all be related?

    • cyberlox11

      Heard two booms last night. My mother said she heard one around 12am so that would make 3.
      February 27th 2013
      One was at 8:17pm
      the other was at 9:37pm
      and the last one around 12am.

      Sounded like a loud boom, door shook. The second time the house shook.
      My mother said her windows shook.

      Sounded like it was coming from the south but knowing how sound travels around here, I know that it came from the north. North of us is the city of San Diego which has a lot of naval ports.

      I checked the earthquake meter online and no reported earthquakes but there was one earlier that day at 4pm. Not sure if its related to the booms we heard at night.

      There is a small airport for private jets, single engine planes and blimps about 5 miles east from us. There is also the Mexican border which has a air naval base next to it. They rotate helicopters for training and its also used as a landing strip for the naval jets that leave Coronado base in down town San Diego.

      I also have a theory that perhaps these booms normally take place during the shift of the equinox. Small booms might be natures natural adjustment to our progressive construction of building materials etc.. But until more of these booms happen in a timing pattern then this would just be as it is, a theory.
