Strange Sounds: Loud booms, Southern New Jersey, USA, October 21, 2012
Residents of Salem, Camden, Atlantic, and Ocean, New Jersey reported hearing a loud boom and feeling the ground shake around 11:03 am Saturday morning. This is the second time these booming sounds are heard this month in Southern New Jersey. The source remains however unknown. Although officials labeled the incident a “sonic boom”, the Air Force denies. The USGS also states that the Strange Sounds are not related to any Earthquakes. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) and the National Weather Service suppose that the loud booms and ground shaking are related to a sonic boom created by a plane.

what the hell i just heard a noise like that 10 min ago freaking out
It just happened again, heard in lower Manhattan, 5/15/13 at approx. 9:10 PM +/- It sounded like it was coming from west side/or NJ. It’s extraordinarily loud, powerful, booming/banging — and somewhat rhythmical, starts and stops, with no rain or thunder, for many minutes.
My and husband and I was awakened on October 22, 2012 at 3:30 am from a loud booming sound. The boom was about 3 seconds apart from each other and continued for about 15 to 20 minutes. What is going on?
We live in Georgia.
Thank you for your information! Nobody knows what is going on. These loud booms are really weird. Earthquakes are not the cause. It could be a meteorite exploding in the sky such as presented here:
Although Georgia is almost on the other side of the States, could it fit to what you heard?
