CLINTONVILLE - An expert says Clintonville has been hit by at least one more earthquake. City Administration Lisa Kuss sent out a release late Monday afternoon, saying equipment for the U.S. Geological Survey detected a quake on the night of March 29th. While he doesn't usually confirm earthquakes, Waite believes Clintonville was hit by one that measured 0.1 magnitude.
BARABOO — For the second time in four months, Baraboo residents have reported unexplained flashes of light accompanied by loud booms. The Baraboo Police Department received reports before 3 a.m. Sunday of flashes and thunderous bangs from locations on Tenth Street, Birch Street, Park Street and numerous other areas. Officers who heard the bangs themselves believed they came from somewhere south of the city, according to a police report. But they were unable to determine who or what caused them.
“Presently, we have no idea what the source is,” said Baraboo Police Lt. Rob Sinden, adding that police also do not have information that could definitively link the Sunday booms to the ones that citizens reported in April. A lead meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Dodge City, Kan., initially speculated the April 1 booms were “bolts from the blue” — which occur when a storm produces lightning strikes in a clear-sky area up to 40 miles outside the system. During the April booms, there was a thunderstorm system to the city’s southwest headed toward Dodgeville. But there were no nearby storm systems when the most recent bangs occurred.
