I have personally heard this rumbling/vibrating three times in the past two years. Keep in mind that I have lived in Washington State for most of my
life....35 years and in Western Washington for twenty of those. I know what a Jet sounds like. I used to live near an airport and have been around
naval bases enough to know what it sounds like. I also know what a train/truck/etc. sounds like. Let me be VERY, VERY clear here: IT IS NOT A JET
that I am hearing. Nor is it thunder (which I at first thought it might be the first time I heard it.) It has the same quality as thunder, in that
you actually feel it as well as hear it. But it doesn't have the same build-up or release and lasts wayyyy too long for it to be thunder.
On the three other occasions I heard it, it was always at night, brief and I wasn't able to get anyone else to hear it. Today was different. It
might even still be happening. I desperately wanted to post at the time, but couldn't. I first noticed it early this afternoon when I went out in
the hot tub. (same as the last time but then it was at night) It was so loud and long lasting that I didn't realize what I was hearing at first. I
looked at my husband who also heard it and I raised my eyebrows. "Loud train?" I asked...he shrugged his shoulders. As he was talking, I tried to
pay attention but kept being drawn back the sound, It wasn't a train. It ebbed and flowed. I thought it was a train at first because I could feel
it...the vibration, as if it were a train close by. The tracks run past not quite a mile away so at times when you are outside you can hear it
briefly. But this wasn't a train. It went away...then it came back. I listened. Definately NOT a jet. Yes, we have jets here. I heard several of
them today, over TOP of the rumbling...it is a VERY different sound.
About an hour later I went out for a walk and to my surprise I heard it the WHOLE time!!! It is coming from the SouthWest...off the coast, towards
puget sound. I am located about 80 miles North of Seattle. I could FEEL it. I tried to record it with my camera vid, but it was too faint. When I
got home, I got my HD recorder and went out back. It was still there. My son came outside and he clearly heard it too. While we listening, a jet
flew over...making it even more apparant that what we were hearing was unique. I tried to record it. My HD recorder is extremely sensitive to sound
however and would rather pick up on whatever is loudest...including my breathing, the birds, footsteps, coat rustling and dogs barking....BUT you CAN
hear it if you listen hard. I just can't figure out how to upload it!!!! If someone can help explain to me how to upload media here, I will insert
Is there anyone from Washington State that heard this today? Go outside now and see if you can still hear it.
I still believe that it is geological in nature. The sounds reverberates through my body and it's HUGE. It sounds like it is coming from the
sky....but it eminates through your body like it's from the ground. I don't know if that makes sense??? I would love to see if these rumblings tie
into tectonic activity. The last time I heard it it came from the SouthEast of my location, the time before to the NorthWest, but always from the
Is there going to be a large seismic event of the coast of Washington/Oregon soon? There were no deep tremors recorded today:
And lastly, no volcanic activity (I have described this sound as similar to when Helens errupted, which I experienced):

I realize I could post this in either of the related threads I linked, but since it has been awhile and I have a recording of it, I think it warrants
it's own thread. Thoughts? Ideas??? (someone to help me post the vid???)

EDIT TO ADD: I went ahead and uploaded to Youtube. I have two recordings. Sorry for the quality, by the mic is too sensitive for up close, not so
much for far away. Both of them, if you listen hard, you can hear a far-away rumbling at about the 9 second mark. Warning, loud dog bark at the
end of the second one!!!

It is really weird that you just made this thread. I live in Northern California, and we just went through a 3.6 earthquake. It's storming here
something serious. Nothing of that nature down here though. Would definitely like to hear the audio on this - Hopefully someone here will show you how
to upload it.
Hope you can get the audio here - interesting! There are some great experts on the Earthquake 2010 thread - I was there a while ago and as you I
didn't see anything for your area. However a member made a prediction for a large quake in California within the next 2 weeks - I hope he/she was
kidding as he/she said earlier don't take me seriously. Are you trying to describe this as a humming of the earth?
no, no rain. It was cloudy and drizzly earlier, but (amazingly) not actively raining. I have to tell you, it freaked me out a bit. I live on a
dead-end county road. When I went for my walk, it was so loud and constant and.....pent-up that I felt as if something was really about to happen.
It is so hard to describe and the vids don't do it any justice.
I'm hoping that there is someone else here at ATS that experienced it today.
I live in Washington state, west of Seattle. I just stepped outside to check, and i think i can hear an odd rumbling. It seems to build intensity,
and then kind of fade. I have a freeway behind my house, and i can hear it over the traffic noise, which is much louder than the anomalous rumble. I
don't live in any commercial flight paths, so i'm not sure what the sound is. I'll keep checking to see if i still hear it, and maybe try to
record it after traffic dies down(too much background noise now).
Thanks for the try but I couldn't really hear anything to well. My house is full of noise right now so I will try early in the morning when all is
quiet. Don't give up, if it happens again try recording again.
I am nowhere near an expert. I would just like to throw this theory out there. Are you close enough to the coast that it is the surf? I've never
lived near a coast myself. I wouldn't know. I was thinking there's been many systems recently. Please don't think I'm not taking your post
seriously. I started a thread on the Juan de Fuca Plate earlier this year.
Me and my wife actually heard a rumbling sound maybe a week or so ago. It was around 10 pm and I heard what sounded like a jet engine that wouldn't
go away.. It maybe lasted a minute. And no it wasn't a plane/train.
Next day at 3:30 pm I heard it again, but from Bellevue. Same noise, lasted about a minute.
Can't hear it in the videos...wish I could, then I'd know for sure if what we are hearing is the same. I live on the east coast and have heard what
you are describing. It's a creepy sound that puts dread in my heart. Haven't heard it in a long time though.
I speculate it could be a couple of things such as:
Evil energy might sound like this if it is not encased within a living creature.
Or, the earth is being dragged somewhere and this is the sound it makes.
Or it could be the sound of earth dying.
Or, it could be the sound of war in the heavens.
Or maybe it's the gates of hell starting to crack open.

Every time I read these post about the rumblings I always wonder if it some type of drilling or tunneling going on around or underneath you. What do
those huge boar machines sound like? Anyone know? At least that might explain why you feel it but cant tell where the sound is coming from... I really
have no idea, just tossing a thought or idea to consider. Sounds rather ominous though...

Hey WestCoast - always good to throw these things out there ... before the 7.1 quake we had here in September many locals near the epicentre had
reported hearing what they thought were "booms" coming from the local military bomb range practice area - except no bomb exercises had been carried
out during that time.
About 2 weeks later the 7.1 hit...
Since then, there has been reports that "booming" preceeds a large quake - if I find any stories/links I'll add them..
We are still getting aftershocks and many just sound like distant "booms" or lengthy rumbles.
yep, this is most likely boring with a nuclear melter...last year it was by anacortes....i have a forex client there, i'll ask him.....boring should
be expected on the coast going north and south for the logistics of it. mt shasta and north for sure. if it is underground...it would easily seem to
resonate from the sky in ones ears
i suppose from mt shasta to fairbanks, huh!!
