Early this morning, @ 3.45a, I was awoken by a slight vibration that caused a little rattle in my home's walls.
I woke up because of the 'wall rattle', more so than feeling the vibration that produced the rattle.
It lasted about 1hr 15mins. It was very similar, if not precisely the same as the other instances I have experienced in the past couple years.
I am opening this thread to get the info out there, hopefully there is someone who may have more information about the event or other witness
I would have opened it early this morning, as it was going on, but I have done that before and it has yet to produce anything a thread opened later
could - aside from too much excitement, too early.
1hour 15mins (approx.)
Seymour, TN - Sevier County (Sevier Co. is home to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, TN. It is on the south border of Knox County and the
city of Knoxville. It is east of Blount County and the cities of Maryville and Alcoa --> yes, Alcoa Aluminum for anyone curious)
A very low pass frequency sound, resembling that of deep bass. The sound would vary in intensity and Hz. Although the tone did
seem to fluctuate in pitch, from a higher range to lower, it never left the low pass range associated with deep bass.
I will link the previous threads in a few moments. There were some very strange things going on around here recently, including odd bird behavior.
There was even a bird die-off of a few thousand birds, with hundreds of birds landing on my property.
I did report hearing the strange phenomena before the strange bird activity and die-off. Most recently, there was more peculiar bird activity, but,
until now, nothing strange has occurred since. (No, I am not claiming there is a direct relation, just speculating on possibilities.)
There was some very intense looking weather fronts coming through here today. I went to the local 'Food City' (Comparable to Kroger's, Publix,
HarrissTeeter, etc) and noticed the strange clouds.
They were very black or dark grey, the blue sky could be seen beneath them on the horizon and above them - because the front hadn't completely covered
On the way home I noticed it was more than just ominous looking frontal clouds, well, it was more than that in my opinion. Driving home, I reached the
top of a 'foothill', known locally as 'Ford Hill'. From atop Ford Hill you can see a couple miles in all directions.
The view atop Ford Hill revealed that the clouds, just as I described before, were completely surrounding Seymour! The sky above Seymour was clear,
with hazy white looking clouds that allowed the blue of the sky to show through, but the horizon in all directions was connected by a very dark cloud
I don't know what you call something like that, but I would not call it normal. It may not be related to the strange noise earlier this morning, but
odd enough I thought I should mention it. Maybe it will spark someone's memory and help understand what's going on around here.
Edited to Add:
I looked @ the Morristown thread, linked below by Doodle. I didn't realize loud booms were reported there. From the descriptions, the eyewitness
reports vary in that the noise was dissimilar from what I heard this morning and several other times over the past couple years.
I don't mean to suggest they are not related. Instead, I'd say I am more curious to know if the sounds are related and the 2 differing noises can help
identify the general source. Hopefully we can use this angle to make some progress to identify one, or both of these events.
