Ok so I'm not insane. I've been looking into the fracking aspect & I'm almost convinced
this is the cause. Now I have to find the other map of The Sound & layer it with yours.
I do remember someone was making a map of the sounds,but that has been so long ago.
there may be places where they don't have to disclose where the facking is happening.

Thanks for the post brother Sensi, I had very similar experience when I lived New Jersey. When the clouds blocked out the sky the rumble would be going for hours. It sounded just like you say like someone stopped an airplane over my house, but I could hear it all over town. This started after they built this large tower at the Picatinny arsenal research facility. I was told the tower is for "gravity and drop tests" what ever they might be. Heres a pic of the tower. It stands 200 feet above ground and 350 feet under. This is all the info I could force out of a friend

Hydraulic fracturing is the propagation of fractures in a rock layer caused by the presence of a pressurized fluid. Hydraulic fractures may form naturally, as in the case of veins or dikes, or may be man-made in order to release petroleum, natural gas, coal seam gas, or other substances for extraction, where the technique is often called fracking[a] or hydrofracking. This type of fracturing, known colloquially as a frack job (or frac job), is done from a wellbore drilled into reservoir rock formations. The energy from the injection of a highly-pressurized fracking fluid creates new channels in the rock which can increase the extraction rates and ultimate recovery of fossil fuels. The fracture width is typically maintained after the injection by introducing a proppant into the injected fluid. Proppant is a material, such as grains of sand, ceramic, or other particulates, that prevent the fractures from closing when the injection is stopped. The practice of hydraulic fracturing has come under scrutiny internationally due to concerns about the environmental impact, health and safety, and has been suspended or banned in some countries.

Your state is being fracked to pieces! I think that's why yall have been having so many small quakes this year....check out those maps....Texas is covered with fracking sites. I was shocked to find out there are 73 in my parish alone and I never even knew it!
