Yesterday March 21 2013, we received reports from all over North Central Florida (Levy, Gilchrist and Alachua counties) from people concerned about two loud booms, similar to a pair of loud “sonic booms”, heard and felt a little after 9:00 PM. Although it seems they were created by army jets, their source is still unknown. An official at a state warning point hotline for the Florida Department of Emergency Management said the military are running special ops drills. Moreover, the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office also told the source of the sounds were military maneuvers, but couldn’t specify what they were. These booms could also be related to U.S. Navy bombing exercises at the Pinecastle Range in the Ocala National Forest or to activities at Cape Canaveral. – News Journal Online
