EVANSVILLE - Southwestern Indiana authorities are trying to determine the source of mysterious late-night booms that are giving area residents a rude awakening. Twenty-four-year-old Caleb Donahoo says he's heard the booms each night this week at his Evansville-area home. He says the first one, on Monday, was so loud it shook his home and rattled its windows. Evansville-Vanderburgh County Emergency Management Agency director Sherman Greer tells the Evansville Courier & Press that so far, local authorities are at a loss to explain the loud noises. The booms have fueled rampant speculation on social media, with theories ranging from a blown power transformer to a meth explosion or a sonic boom from some sort of aircraft. Others have speculated the noises could be mine blasts at a nearby coal mine.

Interesting , I never heard that they later attributed the booms to a small tremor.. ( if you could even call a 1.5 a tremor LOL) since you can't feel them anyways how would they make booms and vibrations... ahhh gullible sheeple will believe it no doubt.
Others speculated it could be a mine blast, but Evansville-based Vigo Coal, which operates in Boonville, said its permit prohibits blasting work from dusk to dawn. Sherman Greer, director of the Evansville-Vanderburgh County Emergency Management Agency, said authorities from several agencies have investigated, but all of them have been dead ends. "We checked with (Department of Homeland Security) in Indianapolis, we checked with the Indiana University Geological Survey, and they didn't have any specific evidence or anything like that," said Greer.
Greer declined to offer any guesses of his own about the sounds' cause, saying he wouldn't want to "put fear in anybody or anything like that."
A series of mysterious booms over Indianapolis around 12:14 am on jan 7th 2013. I say three big ones total. when we heard the first one a few minutes before, i grabbed my phone because of all the sirens. the lights would have been in the northeast direction. I live in 46th & Sherman area. Last boom shook our house so hard it cracked a window. I don’t know if these are planes, Missiles or UFOs but my family was terrified
