Every so often this type of phenomenon pops up. Explanations range from super-sonic aircraft to meteors to large earth movements. It will be interesting to see if this continues now that it is being reported by the press.

"All we know is that there's a large concentration of people's homes shaking, violently, along Lake Avenue," Brugger said. He said the one resident says the sounds started four months ago

The complaints appear to be confined to neighborhoods between State Boulevard and Lake Avenue -- from Anthony Boulevard to Maysville Road.

People have described them as sonic booms, loud explosions, even minor earthquakes -- and some residents said it's enough to make them think that their neighbor's house has exploded.

Oh, I used to hear that all the time when I lived in Kansas. I was raised around the Fort Riley area and would hear those loud booms all the time. Everyone used to say they were testing cannons, or something like that, but as far as I have ever heard there was no mystery to them. You could hear the booms even 25 miles away, although very faint at that distance.

I live in Virginia Beach about 10 miles away from Oceana Naval Air Station, and in the dead of night I can hear sounds like engine burns on the runway. I guess its when they clamp the suckers down and gun the afterburners to test them, or something..its just really damn loud. I think MachinegunJordan lives around here, I wonder if he hears them too?

Maybe its a new form of plasma or laser drilling and they are making undergrond bunkers and the dirt is being turned into vapour. Maybe some one should use an IR temp reader and go see how hot the ground is near the source of the noise and some where else as well. Why would they test jet engine bolted down at night/morning?

I used to live in Fort Wayne and I remember being woken up many times by large the middle of the night. There is a large National Guard Airforce Wing based out of Fort Wayne. I ALWAYS used to see and hear fighter jets ...almost daily. I would often see some A-10's as well. One of the safest places to live in the U.S. in terms of air defense is probably around the Fort Wayne area. Anyway, those guys train hard and have never been shy of breaking the sound barrier there once in awhile.

Well now that this has gotten some publicity the city is being flooded with reports of residents hearing these loud booms. I cant imagine that it is an aircraft, flying low and supersonic. Besides the fact that it isn't showing up on radar, I would think it would be an extremely hazzardous thing to do... I am leanin that this is some type of tectonic event(s).

Reports of Fort Wayne booms bring a flood of calls

Justin Brugger, a city neighborhood specialist, says a day after city officials said they were trying to determine the source of the booms and wanted residents who heard it to call in, the city was flooded yesterday with hundreds of calls.

He says the city has not been able to analyze any data yet.

Fort Wayne began investigating mysterious loud noises in its northeast side this week after several residents called to complain about similar incidents.

One thing remained the same for the newer callers. They all describe loud, booming shakes.

Its back again if I havent misunderstood the date of this article.

(Fort Wayne-WANE-November 10, 2004) - After about a month of silence, Fort Wayne's mysterious "boom" has returned.
"You can't describe it," said Helene Lilly, who heard it almost 10 times Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. "You think you're in a war."

Wonder whats going on? Construction underground done at night, or mother Earth working herself up for something. I dont know, but Itd be nice if someone who either lives there or has reletives close by could get some first hand info

I dug up this thread from 2004 because
it is happening again.
Day before yesterday a loud boom shook
the house and just about 1/2 hour ago
again. I have also been hearing a
a hum from time to time and can't
tell where it is coming from. I know
what sonic booms sound like and
this is not what this is. Its concerning
as it shakes the house and our
nerves. Anyone else experiencing this
or know what it might be.
