i did not do this. when i made these "bombs" i was in high school. i used chemicals so 15sec. over 3min. is posable but there could be secondary effects.

i had the cops come and ask me if was playing with pipe bombs. i did not lie i said no.

I know the kid that was arrested for these "booms". What I have gathered from the neighborhood talk is that this kid and a few others were using some kind of aluminum foil and Draino (or something like it) and closing it up in plastic bottles and throwing them in the sewage and/or rain drains. It apparently takes a little while before the pressure builds up enough for the bottles to explode. They learned how to do this over the internet. I never heard of anything like this, so if I got something wrong about it, sorry. I'm sure someone reading this probably knows more about the process than me. And, it doesn't take much to tell other kids in other cities in chat rooms etc. how to do the same thing. Silly prank, but I think the kid's in some serious trouble for it.


Very close to my first guess... Sewers amplify this effect quite a bit.

are you still hearing these 'booms' at all? I'm skeptical about some of these ideas, but kids playing a prank sounds like a coverup if i have ever heard one

Since there is nothing to suggest that it wouldn't work like they are saying, what makes it a cover up? And a cover up of what?

i know as a kid i or no one i knew would take the time to make some explosives that were so elaborate that they would detonate a few times in ten minutes as well as go on all night. i just seems to me blaming it on kids is an easy scapegoat to satisfy the publics questions. i still kind of think it's testing out of some sort of defensive equipment. it's just on to grand of a scale to be kids, if it just happened once or twice i would agree.

I'm from Richmond too, but not on the side where the booms can be heard. It's really freaking strange. The teen bombs thing smells like a BS coverup IMHO. Dragon I sent you a PM with my email address, I want that mp3 please!

I was woken up this morning at 5:30am to the sounds of thunder, but it wasn't thunder. It was another boom. This time it was a double, in quick succession.

Here is the news article.

you now have to be able to tell the defferance between a shotgun report and anything else. deer season is in and some dumb people even "shine" deer.

This was not a shotgun blast. And there is no hunting in any part of the city.

There were 140 calls to 911 about the blasts this morning. Authorities believe that there were more kids involved in the blasts than had been arrested and that these blasts were possibly from those kids or other copycats.

i have to say if this is a prank there is a adult behind them. buying the supplies for them. it would look a little weird for kids to be buying dry ice,tolitbowl cleaner, and tin foil. or if you want to go to the extrem gunpowder and cannon fuse. so while you look at whats needed to make one ask yourself would you sell the above supples to a kid?

kids are just take the heat for an adult. as a kid i know id rather have seen a mailbox blow up than wake someone up at 5:30am.

Dragon I got your email, but there is no attachment? Either you made a boo-boo, or hotmail wont let the attachment through. I replied to the email with my gmail account, could you resend it to there when you got free time? thanks.

I have been keeping up with this thread and am intreseted in what is going on. I have a family member in Roanoke VA and he has heard the booms. He also said that there was light news coverage.

Here is something I have found out too, Similar things were happening in Raleigh/Cary last week, turned out there is a wacko with a cannon that was firing it off.

I have also read the booms are happening in Indiana.

(Fort Wayne-November 10, 2004) - After about a month of silence, Fort Wayne's mysterious "boom" has returned.

"You can't describe it," said Helene Lilly, who heard it almost 10 times Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. "You think you're in a war."

Newschannel 15 and the Fort Wayne Police Department have each received dozens of phone calls about the noises. This time, the loudest ones seem to have come from near Parkview Hospital on eEst State Boulevard.

The people in that neighborhood said their houses were rocked and their windows were rattled repeatedly since Tuesday night. According to residents, there were four loud booms between 9:30 p.m. and midnight, and another round of four between 6 a.m. And 8:15 a.m. Wednesday.
