This is a compilation of the lots of different states/towns in the United States which have reported mysterious booms since Feb 2, 2019 to about now. If I find more articles, Ill add them below and I also have a map I’ll be posting when I’m finished with it. The map will give us an visual idea of where these boom have been occurring recently. We all remember the booms from the previous years.. So enjoy some articles below and lets see what we can find:
New Orleans Booms:
The mystery surrounding the strange explosion-like sounds heard by residents in the metro area continues to grow. Late Monday night, several were heard in Lakeview, one of which was caught on camera by Eyewitness News.
A story that began in Mid-City, has taken crews to Harahan, River Ridge and Wagaman. Now we go to Lakeview, where late Monday night, the mysterious ‘booms’ were heard again.
“Loud boom, woke up startled, I thought a train car exploded,” said Mariah Sandoval.
The surveillance video shows a flash of light, followed by the loud bang.
She also said her power never went out or flickered, and a walk around the area showed no signs of debris on the ground either. The noise was loud enough to set off car alarms, and wake up people in the area.
“It’s some kind of explosion that generates light, some kind of energy,” said Sandoval.
Even with video showing these bomb-like sounds, its source remains a mystery. Leaving many with more questions than answers as to what it could be.
“I’d like to get to the root of it,” said Norton. “What is it? The curiosity is the biggest factor people want to know. What is it? What is the sound?”
We’ve reached out to the New Orleans Police Department and City Park who are looking into it. We also reached out to Entergy who says it’s nothing on its end. City Hall has not had any reports of it.
Booms Heard Around Philly:
For the second time in a week, Philadelphians are asking, what went boom in the night?
Just like last Tuesday, a loud noise, or noises, just before 11 p.m. Monday night caused people to turn to social media to ask what it was. People described it as a boom, louder than a firework.
This time, some people claimed to hear a series of loud noises.
NBC10 reached out to Philadelphia firefighters and police but they didn’t know of a source of the sounds that were heard from South Philadelphia to Spring Garden.
The National Weather Service told NBC10 Tuesday that the booms may have been caused by frost quakes.
Reports of mysterious booms in Tucson area:
Something is shaking the southwest and it’s been baffling southern Arizona residents for years.
The latest struck this morning, Tuesday, Feb 5, at 8:39 a.m. I felt it myself on the northwest side of town not far from Ina and I-10. I posted it on Facebook and the responses were immediate:
Faye DeHoff wrote, “first it was a major rattle…like a huge truck about to plow into my home…then the boom..that shook my windows…I was sure some of them were broken but they didn’t…my dog jumped up! I’m at River & Campbell.”
Ray C. Merrill wrote, “Oracle and Roger, it was shaking pretty good, and long enough for me to watch the blinds dance around, then get up and walk to the doorway, and it was still shaking.”
There was a similar sensation last week on Thursday, Jan 31 at 8:51 a.m. The same phenomenon; a rumble causing homes to shake and windows to rattle. I felt this one too on the northwest side and once again, so did so many others on Facebook all across Tucson and surrounding areas.
Loud Booms in Downtown LA:
A series of loud booms that rocked downtown Los Angeles on Monday night startled some people who complained on social media. But Los Angeles police said there’s no reason to be alarmed.
The noises were part of a U.S. Army training exercise involving aircraft and weapon simulations in urban settings. The training is set to run through Saturday in Los Angeles and Long Beach.
“Residents may hear sounds associated with the training,” the LAPD said in a news release. “Each location selected enables special operations teams and flight crews to maintain maximum readiness and proficiency, validate equipment and exercise standard safety procedures. The training is essential to ensure service members are fully trained and prepared to defend our nation overseas.”
Mysterious ‘booms’ reported in Harahan and River Ridge
RIVER RIDGE, La. — Something mysterious is going on in Harahan and River Ridge. People there say they’ve heard strange cannon-like sounds, and they have no idea what’s causing them.
“It’s a very peaceful neighborhood,” said Carol, a resident who did not provide Eyewitness News her last name. “It’s very family oriented, quiet, so if we hear something, it’s out of character.”
“Definitely within the last four days I’ve heard something,” said Crystal Roddy, another resident.
Questions are being asked in regards to a strange noise, that’s shaking the nerves of many.
“Sometimes it wakes up my kids,” said Roddy. “It’s usually between 8:30 and 10pm. All of a sudden it sounds like a boom, like something is dropping and something big landed on the ground.”
“They sound like thunder sometimes, but sometimes they sould like fireworks, then other times it’s hard to distinguish if it’s a firework or a gunshot,” said Carol.
People who’ve heard these loud ‘booms’ say they’re happening more often. It’s also happening in other parts of town, like in Lakeview. In 2017 though, some in Mid-City told us they experienced something similar.
No answers to booms heard across Wake County
FUQUAY-VARINA, N.C. — The mysterious noises, some call them “booms,” being reported across Wake County in recent weeks are nothing new.
“These are not a new thing in North Carolina. I think we’ve even had them before scientific instrumentation,” said Jonathan Lees, a geophysicist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
That doesn’t mean Lees, who studies seismology and volcanology, has the answer.
“My colleagues and I still consider these a mystery, although I should point out that we’ve never studied these with scientific instruments like we would use on volcanoes,” he said.
From Fuquay-Varina to Rolesville, residents have reported a loud sound, even vibration.
