The same thing has been happening in Southwest Va for a number of years. Random unexpected, and unexplained "booms" that shake everything and make one feel as if we are under attack. It is not just meteors, not by far. If that many meteors would have fallen then somebody would have seen them and/or found debris.

I hadn't heard that. I have only heard about the more coastal booms. When you say southwest VA do you mean around Lee and Wise counties or, if not, what boundaries?

I agree about the meteors. If it happens a lot then there is probably another explanation.

Some thunder has been recorded as high as 500+decibles. In broad day light. Just saying. Dont rule it out. I know its easy to want to believe something special is happening. But 99.99% it can be explained. Keep your head out of the clouds, no pun intended.

That close to naval facilities, its possible it was a military jet accidentally breaking the sound barrier.

It was probably this:

The air pressure fluctuation did seem to match the boom/rumbling. When it was first happening I thought I was just feeling things. It was more of a "feel" and not so much a "hear". I mean it was loud but the actual shaking is what really stood out. The sound seemed to come from above but the shaking seemed to come from all over.

This was far to low pitched to be thunder. It shook things far to much to be thunder. There was no flash of lightning that would stretch from Hampton Roads area to the eastern shore that would cause such an alarming shake that people would report it. It was not thunder.

Also, it's not about me wanting it to be something "special". I'm stating my experience in this event with the help of what I've come to know in life. My only goal here is to share my story of the event as a local citizen of the affected area who experienced it first hand.

Thanks for filling us in.

In your opinion is anything from Langely too far away to hear?


Not at all, Langley is about 30 miles from Va Beach. They have F-16's, F-15's and last time I checked they had some F-22's. An F-16 is way to small to create a sonic boom of any significance. I have ruled out a sonic boom, at least one made by an aircraft, because of the large area that this was heard and felt.

Relax. Edgar Cayce said Virginia Beach would be safe from the earth changes. He was right about every other testable prediction, as well as all of his medical advice. And hey, that preacher guy (who also predicted the world would end in 1994) says ten days from now is the rapture because that's the 7000th anniversary of the Noah's Ark flood... oh, but Cayce said the anniversary of the flood is October 31st... I know who I'd rather believe. I still don't see how Virginia Beach can survive the collapse of the East Coast. It's fun trying to figure it all out before it happens, isn't it? Anyway, the booming could be in the air, or in the ground, but if Cayce's right, it was probably a meteoric airburst because something like that happening underground would indicate a very unsafe place to be. Oh, maybe TPTB are building another bunker right under you...

Who knows? I shouldn't even have posted this. Just ignore me.

Langley is 4 hours drive north of VA Beach.

Langley, where the CIA is located, is 4 hours north but Langley Air Force base is in Hampton, VA not far from VA Beach. I was confused at first until I looked at a map.

We're talking about Langley AFB, in Hampton, Va.

10 On Your Side called the military, the U.S. Geological Survey and the Department of Energy. Turns out the answer may be found out of this world. "It's most consistent with a meteor coming into the Earth's atmosphere and creating a large sonic boom," said NASA scientist Dr. Joe Zawodny.
This morning NASA is suggesting the sound and shaking were caused by a meteor.

Around Tazewell county, where I am currently located, and I think I have heard of it in some of the surrounding counties as well

Thanks for pointing this out. Just a simple google search brought me to stories about mystery sounds in that part of VA going back to 2006. There could be even earlier reports but that was just a quick search. No one seems to agree what is going on-- only that it happens. The best thing I found, though, was a blog that keeps track of mystery sounds:

That was quite interesting, thanks for leaving that link. A friend of mine, and pending member of my team has suggested that I look into legends of "Hell mouths", he seems to feel inclined that there may be some connection there.

Now that is something I have never heard of.

What is a hell mouth?
