Disturbances do not appear to be earthquakes A couple of loud booms have caught the attention of area residents. It is not certain what caused the booms but it can be reported that it does not appear to be an earthquake. Amber Wilson, Ardmore Emergency Management Coordinator, contact the Oklahoma Geology Department in Tulsa and was told that no activity had taken place which would lead officials to believe it was an earthquake
Loud booming noises have been reported all across Texoma today. We now know what's behind these booms. A spokesperson for Lockheed Martin tells us the booms were caused by supersonic flight tests being conducted by the company. The flights were authorized by the FAA and are conducted in the corridor that runs from Dallas through Oklahoma.
Chris Keathley, Sequoyah county emergency management director confirmed at 4 p.m. Friday that the mysterious rumbling noises heard throughout the county since Tuesday were bombs being disposed of by the U.S. Army Ammunition Plant located in McAlester. “This is nothing unusual, the plant deploys old bombs starting from between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.,” Keathley said. He also explained that the plant is known to set off bombs daily for the last 40 to 50 years, but why it is effecting us now is the mystery,” Keathley said.
