There have been a couple of very interesting suggestions on this thread so far about tunneling, etc. I honestly don't have a clue about the theories regarding this tunneling around here, so I can't comment on it.

Another thought I had, was regarding the recent undersea volcano discovered off the coast recently. I talked about it on my other thread and theorized about it being connected to the theorized magma chamber under us. Here are a couple of links:

Underwater Volcano Article

Article about suspected magma pool


I also have another thread regarding 'Deep Tremors' under Washington State. Link to thread

Article about deep tremors

So for anyone that wants to read up on all the geological tectonic/volcanic RECENT activity and suspected formations, there is a bit for you. I am posting all these items because I honestly think they are all related.

Wow, you sound like a person who has experienced alot, contact me u2u and we can talk ok?

As for the Op, could have been reverb from the overhead cloud coverage...

This is real time tremor map for the last 48 hours. It has been rumbling! Are you in that area of the triangles?

Hm,on the first Video,there is some rumbling,though it just stops suddenly...

Edit: This is #ing weird,in the second one,it sounds like its rumbling all the Time,only to lessen at the end (around Second 24-25)

It is very likely that what you are hearing are airplanes or jets, possibly traffic from way off in the distance. Here is why:

Think of it in terms of a thunderstorm. Sometimes when you hear thunder from a lightning bolt it is a loud crack. Other times you hear a long roll or rumble that seems to go on for a while.

The compression waves created by each part of the lightning bolt (or possible jet/plane/traffic) reach you at different times. The sound wave that has traveled a greater distance will be softer and arrive later than a compression wave created by a part of the “lightning bolt” that was closer to you. The second thing is the compression waves (or the jet/plane/traffic) will bounce around and off the clouds, the ground, mountains and other objects nearby. Much like your voice echoes in a canyon or large empty building.

These two things will cause some compression waves to arrive at the same time which is why the noise from jet/plane/traffic might get loud, then soften a bit, then get loud again (the rumbling you hear). If you have had a plane or jet fly over really close to you, the noise doesn’t rumble as much and sounds more like an explosion. That’s because the compression waves didn’t have a chance to bounce off many things before you heard it. Whereas if you were further away, you would of heard the rumbling.

Sound also will be carried further in moist/humid air as opposed to less humid conditions. Like when you yell underwater as a kid and someone on the other side of the pool can hear you clearly. What kind of weather are you having there?

The drone of a jet engine has a very deep bass sound and that frequency has the potential, with the combined elements above, to travel extreme distances.

Just a possibility to consider…

I understand what you are saying, and I would actually agree with you if I hadn't experienced it myself. As I said in the OP though, I have lived here for over thirty years and I know what a jet/train/traffic and thunder sounds like. This is NONE of those things. It is very hard to explain, but I have absolutely NO doubt about it.

It is actually rumbling the whole time in both of them. With the way the mic works though, if there is a louder sound close to it, it will 'focus' in on that and the rest of the sounds will fade out. That is why the backround noise gets suddenly quieter in the one, because it picked up on a sound I made. The rumbling is there though, under everything else.

Yeah seems to be more geo movements going to happen,I think alot is going on with our planet and not so much the sun as i detailed in links on the 0ther thread solar activity is not answering the break down of the magnetosphere,some other external force is exhibiting its energy on our planets magnetic core ,the atrange weather could be secondary to this.
I have a conclusion..the earth is being bombarded by gravity waves as saturn is ehibiting the absorbtion of these waves .On earth our techtonic plates absorbtion of gravity by compressing techtonic plates,which maybe what we are hearing and in some cases feeling physically by way of migraines as biological matter in our Brains is shaken by the vibrations eminating from these waves.Maybe the supernova beetleguese is reaching us sooner than expected by NASA,or someother nova.

GIANT STORM ON SATURN: Got a telescope for Christmas? Point it at Saturn. A giant storm even brighter than Saturn's rings is raging through the planet's cloudtops. "I've never seen anything like this," says veteran planetary photographer Anthony Wesley. "It's possible that this is the biggest storm on Saturn in many decades." Here it is recorded by Wesley's 16-inch telescope on Dec. 22nd:

Instruments on NASA's Cassini spacecraft are picking up strong bursts of radio static. Apparently, lightning is being generated in multiple cells across the storm front. Cassini's cameras are also beaming back fantastic images of the tempest.

"At it's current size and brightness, the storm should be visible to anyone with a mid-size scope under steady seeing," continues Wesley. "This is a great time to be a planetary photographer." [Sky maps: Dec. 29, 30, 31]

I hope this helps you all to know the bigger picture unfolding,have a nice new year..make the most of it ,it really is a fragile earth,tidal waves in the med ,well say no more !

You've got some really interesting theories. The thing is,no one really knows, do they? So that is why I find this stuff so fascinating.

I am most curious right now to see if we have any measurable geological activity in the coming days. I wouldn't be surprised to see a larger quake of the coast of Washington or Oregon....or even in the puget sound area.

Britain has experienced its first earthquake in god know how long at coniston,in the lake district,thats very rare

Quake in the Lakes: Tremor rocks Cumbria and sends residents running into street

By Paul Sims
Last updated at 4:38 AM on 23rd December 2010

It was the night when the Lake District became the Quake District:

An earth tremor measuring 3.5 on the Richter scale with its epicentre 8.9 miles beneath the Cumbrian village of Coniston, rocked the Lake District for 30 seconds on Tuesday night.

The tremor happened just before 11pm, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, which monitors earth movements.
Scene: U.S geologists pin-pointed Coniston in Cumbria as the epicentre of the earthquake late on Tuesday night

The tremor lasted up to a minute, according to people in the area, and was felt in places across the county and as far away as Lancashire, south-west Scotland, Northumberland and the Isle of Man. No damage or injuries have yet been reported.

Peter Kelly, owner of the Yewdale Hotel in Coniston, said: ‘We were just closing up the bar with a few residents in and we just felt like a bang and then a rumbling but we couldn’t decide what it was.’

Hotelier Alan Robertson, who was in his 30-bed hotel in Eskdale, near Whitehaven, described how the property shook.
'I was watching TV and there was this sort of really loud rumble. Then the entire building shook,' he said. 'I ran out of the front door, only to be confronted by my guests running out of their part of the house. We couldn't believe it.'

The 36 year old, who had six guests at the Bower House Inn including a pregnant women, added: 'It was sizeable enough to shake an old and well-established building.

'If I lived in a city, I would have assumed it was an explosion. I am still in shock. I can barely get my thoughts together.'

A spokesman for Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service said: 'We have had confirmed reports from officers around the county. It happened around half an hour ago. We felt it here in Cockermouth.

'We have had no requests from members of the public. At the moment, we don't believe there is any structural damage.'

A resident in Kendal told Sky News: 'My house started to shake...we went to our patio windows and the neighbours, they were out. The first storey physically shook. My girlfriend said a similar thing happened early last year. I looked it up on Google and sure enough, it has happened before.

'Last year when it happened we had bits of plaster come loose but nothing fell down this year. I do vaguely recall the one last year but this one I particularly felt it. It was a little bit exciting...something happening.

'It wasn't sort of life-threatening or anything like that, it was just a bit of a shock really.'

Susan Potter, geophysicist at the U.S. Geological Society, said that in the last 40 years, six earthquakes had been recorded within 50km of the latest quake.

Of those two have been of a magnitude of 3.7 - in 1988 and 2009.

'This general region has had earthquakes of the same magnitude in the past,' Ms Potter said.

There are around 200 minor tremors in the UK every year but only 10 per cent are ever felt by the general public.

* A magnitude five earthquake occurs on average every 10 years. A magnitude four earthquake occurs on average every two to three years.
* Although everywhere in Britain is theoretically susceptible, the west side of the country and Scotland are particularly at risk.
* London can be affected by tremors in the English Channel but is hardly ever the epicentre itself.
* The largest tremor in recent times measured 5.2 and caused damage to buildings and at least one injury when it hit near Market Rasen, Lincolnshire in February, 2008.
* It was felt as far away as Wales, Scotland and London, and there were reports of residents being woken from their sleep by the tremor.
* Other earthquakes deemed to be 'considerable' by the British Geological Survey include a 5.1 magnitude tremor which rocked Bishop's Castle in Shropshire in 1990.
* The largest known offshore earthquake in the UK occurred in the North Sea on June 7 1931, about 120km north east of Great Yarmouth.
* Measuring 6.1 on the Richter scale, it was felt across most of Britain, in the east of Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium and parts of France, Germany, Denmark and Norway.

Data from the British Geological Survey showed the location of the quake as Coniston, Cumbria. The area appears prone to earthquakes at this time of year.

Nearby Dumfries in Scotland suffered a tremor measuring 3.5 on Boxing Day in 2006. Hundreds of people in the Dumfries area reported their houses shaking violently at around 10.45am. Seismologists said the tremor, which lasted around 10 seconds, was the largest in the UK that year.

Kent also saw a quake measuring 4.3 on the Richter scale in April 2007. Homes were damaged as chimneys toppled, walls cracked and masonry fell as the tremor hit Folkestone.

Describing last night's quake to Sky News, a Kendal resident said: 'We were just sitting there quietly watching the TV and suddenly there was a thumping noise.

'It sounded like the next door neighbours running upstairs, that kind of distant thumping. It just got louder and louder. The house started to physically shake. A few things that were in the room above us in the spare room fell off the tops of wardrobes.'

Karen Dickinson, of North Lancashire, told Sky News: 'It was just a real rumbling, which sounded like thunder.

'The furniture started shaking in the house. The children were upstairs playing on the Wii and came running down. They were quite scared.

'We didn't realise what it was. We thought perhaps it was some kind of explosion. Then we assumed it was an earth tremor. This one definitely felt stronger than the one in previous years. It wasn't that bad but it was quite scary at the time. The room actually moved.'

A spokeswoman for Dumfries and Galloway Fire and Rescue Service said tonight people in their control room in Dumfries had felt a 'small tremor' and there was a 'bit of noise' at the time of when the tremor was reported.

Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary said they had reports of people feeling a tremor in Dalbeattie.

scientists will be gutting themselves right now because the L.I.S.A array is not up there yet to capture this gravity variation as its quite obvious from the volcanic and earthquake activity theres alot going on which indicates gravity waves.

posted on Dec, 29 2010 @ 01:13 AM
It's not just happening there! I've been experiencing this since Oct here in So Cal. Beware, I believe these sounds caused some unwanted side effects in me. Very unpleasant. Also I don't think everyone can hear it. Only those who are able to detect higher or lower frequencies outside of the norm.

Here are other threads of people talking about this

posted on Dec, 29 2010 @ 01:29 AM
It was a very sad day when I heard the news of the funding being cut off for the L.I.S.A. project. There are other methodologies to measure gravity waves, however they would not have near the precision of that instrument. Too bad the data from the gravity probe b was indeciferable as well. It would raise our understanding significantly if we had actual data of measured spatial displacement.

Good theory on gravity waves being the cause of unusual geologic phenomena here and elsewhere in the solar system as well as some interesting solar activity. I'll have a look further in to this as well.

As for the sounds in Washington? My first instinct was magma displacement. It produces the effects described. Very etherial and difficult to localize and seems to emminate from the sky. Or could easily be from tbm's although I have never heard them at a distance, but I understand in the right conditions they can travel a fair distance.

It's great to see so many responses and different experiences and ideas.

I tend to agree with the magma movement....that's just what it 'feels' like. If you read about my theory regarding the possible magma chamber sitting under this half of the state, Think it also makes sense. Now, could gravity waves have an affect on this magma movement.....who knows? It's possible! Lot's of theories out there regarding lunar and solar affects.

Im more worried about all those Earthquakes happening lately...For Christs Sake,we had two on Dec. 23 in Germany (one 3.5 at 10km and another 2.7 at 9km,apparently different ones) This is what i call unusual alright.

Hey, I missed this before. That is it!!!!! Great job filtering it out.

I just went outside again for awhile and didn't hear it anymore. I DID however hear a jet go over and it made me realize the main difference is the frequency. The rumbling is much lower than a jet, which is what makes it harder to record, and for everyone to be able to hear.

Thanks again for the soundbite. Wish there was a way I could embed it in the OP. Is it possible to u2u it to me?
