Some residents reported feeling like multiple earthquakes and other thought they were more like experiencing sonic booms just before 1:30 p.m. local time Thursday afternoon.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey a shaking occurred at 1:24 p.m. EST. It was triggered by a sonic boom near Hammonton, New Jersey. No earthquakes.

Meanwhile the Earth Institute reported at least three earthquake tremors in New Jersey, and are gathering information from their seismometers.

USGS has no explanations for the remaining two tremors.

Twitter is abuzz. Here some residents’ reports:

Maybe several sonic booms. Because I have never heard of one jet going supersonic and creating plenty of booms. I look forward for the seismometers data of The Earth Institute.
