I live in Sallisaw, OK. I sleep during the day because I work 3rd shift. I heard these noises all day today while I was trying to sleep, but I just thought it was thunder or someone working outside or something.

I wouldn't have given it a second thought until I came to work tonight, and one of my coworkers was talking about hearing something on the news about weird rumbling noises in sequoyah county.

And everyone is saying it happens at noon everyday... but it started earlier than that today and last for hours and hours. Who knows.

It really did seem like really close thunder. But at the same time, different. Hard to explain. It wasn't a plane that I'd ever heard before or a train or anything.

It was weird. I just hope it's not anything bad. Haha.

My first thoughts, reaction, to this article is certianly not that it is man made, rather the earth is moving beneath the city. Could definatelty be magma or earthquakes.

Wouldn't it be awful strange for a tremor to strike at the same times every day?

This thread kind of hits home in Miami where we have never experienced earthquakes or tremors. Plenty of hurricanes though.

Twenty five years ago when I lived with my parents in a new development, I remember being awaken by what I can best describe as a tremor like sensation of sound and a feeling of a "giant mole" digging underground and getting closer to you by the second. No explosion or thunder sound, but a sound of something going on underground and becoming louder and feeling it like it was coming your way. Pretty much like sound waves of an F16 flyover.

This would only happen when I was asleep late mornings (I worked until late at night then). It never happened when I was fully awake even at the same time of the day it had happened when I was asleep.

Back then, I shrugged off and blame it on a concrete quarry located about 3 miles away. Yet, no one I spoke to had experienced it, perhaps they were all off to work at that time.

Five years later having married and moved out, my parents called me to tell me that their ceramic floor tiling had inexplicably cracked in the middle of their living room and lifted up. I personally went and saw it, it was like a "fault line" through the middle of the square tiles and the tiles were lifted up a good five inches at the tip of the rupture. They had them replaced.

Thinking back, I wish I would have been there when they were being replaced so I could have seen exactly what was underneath the cracked tiles. Eerily, none of the adjacent neighbors had any damages (maybe they had carpeting which was popular then).

To this day, this remains as one unsolved mystery to me which is why this thread called my attention.

Anyone from South Florida experienced this?

Thank you.

What say you? Presidential "hiding places" are segregated? Or am I misunderstanding?

thanks, I had posted that on page 2 already. It is an interesting factor

Hey there Sleepless. bad.

mea culpa, mea culpa

Possibly someone or something is putting Tesla's theary on vibration to work. Causeing a massive vibration at the same locations at the same time, over and over again. End result.. Massive Earthquake... Mythbusters put this theary to work on a metal bridge.. large scale bridge.. And only using hand operated equipment they cause the bridge to vibrate and a very noticable rate.. be easy..

Apparently the plant was closed in June of 1993 after a long string of 'incidents'. But the plant not being in operation doesn't mean anything with regards to the mystery at hand
There are underground areas at that facility.

I wonder if it was torn down or if it is sitting there like a ghost factory. I'm going to keep researching.

Maybe there's going to be a blow-out like in the game STALKER: Shadow Of Chernobyl.

But what kind of incidents are we talking about at the plant? Un-explained accidents. Is it suppose to be haunted or something. I once worked at a haunted recycling plant.

This is definitely interesting. Don't you think that these vibrations in the ground could be hiding something ? I'm part of the underground base theory, the shadow government must have obtained some guarantees from the Obama administration and is working hard to complete their goals. My guess is a network of underground bases where wealthy and important people will hide in the case of a big attack, from space or from China

honestly it freaks me out

The USGS can detect explosions with their seismic network. I would scratch that off your list. Rock quarry explosions are often seen on the network.

Wow Zerbst. What area are you in? (Im guessing Detroit but hate to assume) Sometimes we tend to ignore things like that in the bigger cities since there is so much going on and noise... we justify things in our minds. But this is out in the Plains... little harder to explain away. Maybe you should keep a log of when you feel/hear it happenning and see if there is a pattern.

edit to add: Im sorry to hear about your home

Hi Sleeepless, and thank you for the concern.

I'm in Redford,MI. which borders the west edge of Detroit. I've been in the city all my life and have never experienced this before. Gunshots, sirens and traffic accidents is about all you hear around hear.

I will keep track, when I can, of the times. I have been wanting to spend time outside and try to identify this, but we are having very low temps lately. Soon as the weather lets up I plan to walk around the area a little to see what I can find?

Something is definitely up around here? Michigan has been going through hell for a few years now, but currently it's flat out bizarre! What do you suppose is related to salt mines? One thing sure around here is the escalation in crime.

I was talking to a Detroit cop buddy of mine earlier today and he was telling me armed robberies and theft in general are at levels he's never seen. Part of his job is having to foot chase a gun crime suspect. This used to average 1-2 chases every few months and now is 1-3 daily! People here are desperate and not left many options to survive.

Maybe you can drive around in the day time and look for openings or suspicious structures around your area. I think that is what I would do and maybe a night too around the times you hear the noise to maybe gat an idea of what area they are coming from. That would be fun. If you haven't already looked around. If you have, did you see anything?

That's exactly what I plan to do as soon as the weather breaks. There's about 3 feet of snow down right now and temps below freezing for weeks! The noise from inside my building sounds as if it's right outside the door? The problem is it's a warehouse type building and they can carry sound all over that's difficult to locate when inside. As soon as I can get outside to learn more I will definitely bring the info back here to share.

Thank you everyone for your input on this

For those of you that have not read through this thread, there has been an explanation given by the military as to what is being experienced by these people.

Military Explanation

The question now is do we buy this explanation? I posted a little map snippet on page 4 i believe, showing where they say this is occuring in comparison to the main area of reports and it doesnt add up to me. Also they said they have been destroying these bombs at one per day over the last 40-50 years at the same time of day.... that is over 17000 bombs destroyed in the same area.... not sure if that is even possible. And why all of a sudden are people feeling/hearing this now if it has been going on for over 40 years? Lets chime in on this new factor of the mystery
I would love to hear other opinions on this.

Would love to hear it myself,someone has a recording of this sound?
Should be easy to capture if it's happening always at the same time.

posted on Jan, 24 2009 @ 07:02 AM
Ok, I am hereby confused (nothing that unusual lol)

I just checked at the local news station where the story originated from and they are now saying that they contacted McAlestar and they DONT claim to know what the cause is...... so where did the 'disposal of bombs' story come from?

here is a link to the updated news story

Atmospheric Condition likely cause of rumbles, say experts

I have to head out to work in about 10 min so I cant investigate this now but if someone else would like to run with this and see if they can find out more, that would be great

Catch up with you soon, Thanks all!

I worked in the nuclear power industry in the '70s - There were two NRC Inspectors on-site @ Savannah River Project Dupont/DOE/DOD kept them under guard, locked in an office trailer for the entire work day..........

Several of my friends and i have tried to locate the location of the sound, we kinda places ourselves several miles apart trying to figure out which direction, we did go about our business but had some idea what time the booms happen everyday. We felt the sound was coming from the hills up toward the northeast , toward Stilwell. We drove out there, and had several incidents. We passed a convoy of 4 large white semi's with no names on them and blue and white tags, what was wierd was the cabins of the semi's where blacked out and the rigs looked to be reinforced. We also passed a powerline pass and could see a large number of people , on 4wheelers, we did a uturn in the highway to get a better look and about that time a unmarked black trooper turned his lights on us . I went to pull over but he just passed by. Kinda spooked at that point we decided to drive back home and on the way we could see 2 helicopters flying low to the ground in the distance. I believe that some military activity is going on. We def. felt threatened, maybe it was just adrenaline..

Are there any natural gas pipelines being installed in this area? Because they do a lot of blasting..Not the kind of blasting you would hear at great distances..But there could be more then 1 pipeline..The pipeline business is booming right now all over the Midwest and the South..I'm pretty certain there are a few under construction in Oklahoma currently..It might be worth checking into..
