Sonic booms, at the very least generate a very low rumble seeming to come from all directions. At their most intense, the initial sound wave sounds quite like an explosion, followed by the low rumbling.
I guess the only problem with the sonic boom theory, is you would think more people would have heard it and complained. The military is not supposed to go supersonic over populated areas unless it's an emergency. It can spook animals, horses, etc.

Based on what I've learned in my Geology classes, the sounds you are describing are generally heard before and during landslides and other mass-wasting events. There have been several rock and landslides in North Carolina this year. The ground is very unstable due to a lot of heavy rain over the last year...

this site has a record of this phenomenon.

People are reporting these 3 and 4 times a day from north of wilmington all the way to myrtle beach.
For a long time, residents couldn’t pinpoint what was causing the loud booms they say is disturbing the peace in their neighborhood. The culprit is a propane-fueled air cannon used to frighten unwanted fowl from the vineyards. It’s typically used from the first week of July until the first week of October, said Nancy Pfeiffer, one of the owners of the Voss family Belmont Vineyards. “It’s a very short period of time,” she said.
