from News 12 Officials at Brookhaven National Laboratory say the loud noise heard in eastern Suffolk was caused by military jets.

Several people noted a loud boom in eastern Long Island -

Many believed it was an explosion related to aftershocks from the quake.

Official story is military jets - anyone have anything to add to this or information?

Fighter jets are pretttttty loud if anyone has ever been to an airshow. I dont think it would be fighter jets because the national guard said there weren't any jets on radar, and if they were fighter jets, why would they fly low enough to shake half the island?

military jets sounds like a blatant lie imo

Yeah, I believe it, we have airshows every summer and fall around here. You wouldn't believe what those sonic booms sound and feel like. It's quite an experience.

the jones beach air show is in may for memorial day. is there anything planned for this (hurricane) weekend?

Perhaps they're seeding the clouds.

Louder than my hair dryer.

more info coming in :

The FAA says a Military aircraft experienced a pressurization problem and made a rapid descent creating the noise that people heard and felt in eastern Suffolk.

i still think with this Irene heading our way this is cloud seeding

Sonic booms can steer a hurricane.
