more booms heard following earthquake.

"The USGS confirmed a small earthquake struck San Diego County Thursday night. The quake struck with a magnitude of 3.3 and at a depth of 7 miles at 11:09 p.m"

"...over a dozen calls from concerned viewers who described the earthquake as very loud and said it was accompanied by three eerie booms"

"No one in our generation remembers so many small tremors across the world triggering so many sonic booms. One has to wonder what is happening in the earth beneath our feet"

weird wild things here in 2012....

I'm not even going to list off possible reasons for these sounds and shakes happening beneath us.

I will say that this is a great opportunity to get rid of excess complacency and take ownership of how sharp each individual is.

That is quite possible. It would be incredibly interesting if that were it.

I have the strangest feeling that we are going to find out soon enough.

plate tectonics?

they are on/near major known faults afterall, no?

It's strange that they heard booms. Were the booms always there and nobody paid attention to them or are they something new. They could have been there and everyone was used to them before and just thought they were a normal part of things.

The USGS has a very informative page on these sounds (if you buy their explanation)

Perhaps the best way to understand earthquake sounds are from an actual experiment that took place back in the 80's in California by David Hill. Dr. Hill's team recorded sounds that came out of the earth (from nearby small earthquakes between magnitude 2.0 and 3.0) and simultaneously measured the arrival of the P wave on a seismograph. Researchers also reported hearing a sound before the S waves were recorded; this turned out to be the arrival of the P wave

It seems they have been experimenting on the sounds since the 80's

Resurrection of "operation plow-share" ?

Thanks for the info OP

I got a real bad felling about April that I can't seem to shake, no pun intended.
Just sayin.

News to me.. And I live here.

camp Pendleton is about two minute north of me, and they were booming all day, but that entirely normal.

And if there was a tremor I slept through it.

All in all an ordinary day for SD.

San Diego is minutes away from several fault lines that run through California. There are earthquakes all the time in northern Mexico and El Centro. Most people are pretty much aware that the big one is coming some time in the future... But c'mon, it So Cal.
