The noise was hardly over all vancouver island....
I live 100 mi north in nanaimo and it wasnt heard here.....
The island runs for hundreds of miles, its a huge piece of rock.....
probably the size of G Britain.....
The noise has also been heard in northern washington which is only 20 miles from victoria across the strait.
Further north than that we havent heard anything yet........
Vancouver island is just over 1/10th the size of Great Britain
what the hell are you smoking?

Blast welding or explosive bonding in washington, (across the straight) caused the shaking and rumbling.
Not super biblical.

I have heard on several sources linked to the "rumblings" and earth shaking are not seismic activity. So, I am confused, seismic to me means earth tremors, shaking or movement. Thus, the explanation that some equipment is giving false readings due to “shaking” or “rumbling” or “movement” from traffic flow near the equipment. So how is this shaking and rumbling which is felt by people from the ground, and registered by objects shaking NOT being registered by seismology? My little brain is confused. I hope someone who is more learned, preferably the experts here on the Fragile Earth forum can answer this.

It could only have been an aerial event if it was so sporadic and avoided earthquake detection.
I'm honestly thinking some super rare electric shock through the EM field. We're having higher solar storms now, right?

I have been following these "Strange sounds" etc..For a while now and their is no doubt that some are infact REAL rather being hoaxed. Anyway's the truth is earthquakes can be caused due to us "humans" as well as the natural beauty of the earth its self. In the video it show's the guys blowing stuff up with dynamite.
This doesn't have to cause an earthquake but instead it can cause a Seismic Wave, here let me explain....
Seismic waves are waves of energy that travel through the earth, and are a result of an earthquake, explosion, or a volcano that imparts low-frequency acoustic energy. Many other natural and anthropogenic sources create low amplitude waves commonly referred to as ambient vibrations. Seismic waves are studied by seismologists and geophysicists. Seismic wave fields are measured by a seismograph, geophone, hydrophone (in water), or accelerometer.
This quote was taken from Wikipedia you can read more HERE
So as you can see these 'Waves' are the results to Earthquakes which possibly means they did or did not happen before or after an earthquake. A wave could simply make the ground feel like its shaking although the earthquake did not proceed afterwards(Due to the people blowing up dynamite).
These waves are also broken down, the earth can achieve a very small "Surface Wave". The frequency's are so low that are not picked up on a "Seismic Scale" again you can read more at the Wikipedia link I have provided. This is just my guess to figure out on what the cause could be. I am by no means an expert, If this does not explain the cause than my mind and these sounds are beyond me .

For those of you not familair with Vancouver Island, to put it into perspective, to paddle a sea kayak around it, you are looking at about 1150 to 1200 kilometers (I've done it several times). As for the noises...pretty interesting. I watched the CTV newsclip and it seems nobody knows what it is. And the distance between Victoria and Sooke is great enough that it does not make sense to be simply a localized blast.
There is a military base in the area but I'm not sure if it is somehow involved or not... I'll be wathcing this one closely....

CE - what you are describing sounds like maybe what my wife heard yesterday (Tuesday, January 25th). We live in Bonney Lake, WA which is south of Seattle. Much closer to Tacoma than Seattle. Anyway, when I got home from work yesterday my wife asked me if I had heard anything about an earthquake, which I had not, and she told me that she both felt and heard a rumbling somewhat like an earthquake. Having read all of the "atmospheric noise" threads on ATS lately, I pulled up a couple of the videos and played them for her. She said that was not the sound that she felt/heard and we just kind of blew it off as maybe wind or something (lots of heavy wind yesterday around the Puget Sound region).
So today at work, I'm taking a little ATS reading break and come across your thread and my "spidey sense" gets to tingling and...well I'm just adding my little "event" to the whole thing. Just the way you describe it (other than the street cleaner thing) is so familiar to what my wife described.
For anyone not familiar with the area, my location is approximately 100 miles southeast of Victoria, BC - a very beautiful city I have visited a few times and am long overdue for another visit.

OOps - Sorry CE, the street sweeper comment was made by NuminousCosmos and not you - sorry for the confusion.

Well thats true, there is a training island right near Sooke, that gets blasted all the time. The local residents would certainly not mistake anything of that sort, since they hear that all the time. I lived in Sooke for almost 20 years.
It is probably either, someone with a synthesizer, on a mountain, my brother in law used to do that. I called it whale noises, he called it music.
But with a good sub woofer, and knowing how freaked out people are already about well this as a for instance...

Question for you. When did you hear these noises and make that video in Thunder Bay? I've heard some of these n oises here lately as well, just fainter than what yo umay have heard (I'm in T Bay as well).
