Just about ten-fifteen minutes ago, my son and I were sitting in our front room watching tv. We heard a very loud rumbling coming from outside. This
was over the suround-sound. We just looked at each other and as it got louder, I grew concerned and even wondered if it was an approaching, large
quake. I muted the tv and opened the window. "A train?" I asked him.....it seemed WAY too loud, and in over six years of being in this house had
never heard one this loud. That is what it sounded like, a train that was right next to the house, vs a mile away. We could feel a vibration with it
too, which is why i was growing more concerned, when it suddenly and abruptly stopped. No way it could have been a low-flying jet. We sat a few
moments....waiting. It suddenly started again and I grabbed my recorder and ran out into my backyard. My outdoor dog promptly ran past me, inside.
A duck in the marshes behind my house was making some god-awful sound and more further away were also sqwaking.
The sound was gone when I got outside. I waited for over ten minutes but it didn't come back. I have checked local seismos and don't see anything
showing. If it happens again I will try and record it, but meanwhile I am wondering if anyone else experienced it? About 10:10 pm or so(give or take
five minutes) PST.
I want to stress it was NOT a train, a plane (like any kind I have ever heard) or thunder. I have no idea what it could have been. This was NOT like
the 'trumpets' sounds that are traveling the internet, nor is it the same far-off rumbling sounds I have heard in the past, but ten times louder. It
could have been the same mechanism causing it but it was much,much louder and sounded like it was approaching and around me vs far off.
ETA: I want to add that I think the reason i thought quake is because it was very, very similar in sound to the two times I was in a 6 and 6.8 quake
before, but without the shaking.
