Huge Boom

Around 11:20 am est. today I heard a boom that rattled my windows.
I assumed it was the kids being rambuntious (sp?) so I yelled up there to quit it.
They were sitting with their mom and they said they didn't do it.
A neighbor called and asked if I heard it too and he lives across the street.
I called the PoPo and they heard it too.
They put me on hold while they checked.
Two minuites later they tell me that it was "something going on at Quantico Marine Corp. Base".
She also said I "would hear this over the next 3 days".
I live 20 miles north of Quantico.
Is this normal 20 miles away?
I've never heard it before and lived in this area most of my life.
I don't know much about Proving grounds and such does anyone know if this is normal or what they could be blowing up to cause the windows in a house 20 miles away to be shaken?

I could feel it there was no mistake about it!
Thought at first maybe construction demolition or clearing rock, but when the cops told me a Military Base 20 miles south of here it made me curious as to what kind of weapons they would be using.
If thats even the real truth about the booms.
I would imagine that the people that live closer to the base would suffer broken windows the way mine shook.

Kinda makes me think it was a sonic boom from a jet going supersonic. Also, if the police said that you'd hear it for the next few days, it most likely means they're doing some sort of exercise - they tend to notify the authroities when they're going to be noisy.

Quantico is HUGE. There is a good chance that one of the training areas is within a few kilometers of you.

Wow those underground bases must be getting big!

They must be going faster to meet deadlines.

Heh... where I live is sometimes quite a nuisance. Occasionally there will be this gigantic boom followed by the sound of what sounds like a pulsating reverberation sound wave of sorts. My neighbors and I complain about it sometimes and we are told that there is a air compression plant seven miles away. I don't care what it is, sometimes the noise lasts for hours and is very annoying

Could well have been this:

it might be, but more than likely it was just a military plane or a bomb or something.

The police told me to expect it the next three days, but the three days past and I only heard it one other time, and it was not as loud.
