Could this have a natural explanation. In the early 2000s I was awoken by a loud boom .After the boom the house and everything in it shook for 2 minutes. Everyone knows the first thing I thought of . But later on in the day I heard on the news it was an earthquake. Of course I was in disbelief at first. An earthquake in Georgia ? But then I remembered the shaking.
After that I did some research. Some theories state the "boom quake" is another type of earthquake previously unknown or marked as a mysterious event and nothing more came from it.

Interesting how the military said it wasn't them and has no viable answer. That pretty much rules that out. Possible meteor? Or some other unknown object or unnatural condition?
According to the Michigan National Guard, there are no planes fast enough and based in Michigan that can create a sonic boom. It is possible that a supersonic jet from another state is conducting military exercises in this area.
The Evart Fire and Police Department says military jets were the source . . . We reached out to the FAA and the National Guard, who are looking into what happened.
Noise during earthquakes is mostly due to the sound of structures suddenly shifting during the initial Primary or "P" waves moving under buildings and structures. The initial ripple of P waves is supersonic, like picking up a house a few inches and setting it back down-- Bang! The sound of that inside a structure can be extremely loud.
But it sounded like a truck ran into the side of the building when it hit.
Most didn't feel it, some thought it was like a large trunk driving by, but I actually "heard" it.
HOWARD CITY, Mich. (WZZM) -- The Ohio National Guard confirms that it had F-16s flying in Michigan on Thursday . . . Friday afternoon, the Ohio National Guard said its 180th Fighter Wing, based out of Toledo, Ohio, does training in Michigan. The public affairs officer told WZZM 13's Sarah Sell that she hasn't been able to confirm the sonic boom but says the F-16s are capable of producing them and they were in the area . . . The weather could have been a factor, too; the public affairs officer said the noise likely traveled farther and seemed louder due to the sound being pushed down because of cold temperatures. That could explain the vibrations being felt by people in their homes.
