'Skyquakes' of March put S. Idaho on edge
Associated Press - March 15, 2009 5:04 PM ET TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) -
The 'skyquakes' are back. Southcentral Idaho residents are once again reporting strange rumbling noises and periodic shaking events that have been absent for a year. On March 3 people across the region reported a loud boom and rumbling that evening to the Southern Idaho Regional Communications Center.
Geologists say no earthquakes were recorded close enough to the region to cause the event and suggest sonic booms from military aircraft. But officials at Mountain Home Air Force Base say the closest jet was too far away to be a factor. For several days during March of 2008 the strange rumblings happened regularly at 11:23 p.m.
Residents from Mission Viejo to Huntington Beach have reported hearing and feeling windows in their homes shake today between 3 p.m. and 4:15 p.m. — an eerie repeat of the unexplained door and window rattling that startled and frightened thousands of people in Orange County on March 3.
CARLSBAD: Residents report loud boom
Something went boom in the night Tuesday, but no one seems to know what it was.
The boom seemed especially powerful along the coast, where residents reported windows, doors and houses shaking at about 10 minutes before 8 p.m.
There was speculation that the sound and accompanying sensation came from a supersonic jet, officials with the Federal Aviation Administration and the U.S.Geological Survey said Wednesday.
