Others living near the area also experienced the vibrating and heard the noise but came up with different answers as to where the sounds were coming from. Was it coming from the sky? Echo

The noise was loud enough that it sent New Orleans police officers searching for gunshot victims, but they turned up nothing — and a survey of other public agencies since then likewise leaves the source of the sounds a mystery. Uptown Messenger

The mysterious booms are reported around the World and most of them remain unsolved.

  1. Approx. 12a.m.this mornin (Saturday, 1-5-19)
    or L8 last nite (Friday, 1-4-19) — HOWEVER ?WAN2? IT—- A, 1x, LOUD ??? NOISE, HAPPENED *for the 1st TIME* IN CAYUGA CO., NYS, tho seemed 2B ? Closer to the WEEDSPORT(13166) & CATO(13033) AREA(S), of Central New York STATE…???

  2. Increasing loud booms, at least one a week. One night 2 loud booms with a bright flash. Nobody seems to know what it is.

  3. February 9, 2017. 9am
    Gulf Breeze,
    loud metal sounding moaning, rumblings sounds like an old ship creaking. loud enough to shake the walls in my home. Very scary sound reminds me of a scary movie.

  4. November 24th, 2-5am or so don’t really remember. Renton, WA. Heard two to three loud booms within a 5-10 minute period thought they were fireworks but they did seem like really loud ones and I felt them. After seeing the loud boom reports be a top story on msn news I’m starting to think maybe it wasn’t fireworks. Lol.

  5. About a week ago ( November 18, 2017 or so) , I heard/felt a rattle in my house that got my attention. The Dalles, Oregon. Quite frequently I hear a loud roar in the skies that lasts for a few minutes. It seems to travel from the East to the West. Usually in the early morning hours.

  6. Loud boom last night in Marlborough MA. Heard by multiple people throughout the city. Police reportedly unable to locate the source.

  7. Loud booms have been happening here since last year. It just started happening again last week. No one has any explanation of what’s causing this to happen. They are loud enough to where they are rattling houses and knocking stuff off of the walls.

  8. I live in Stockton, CA and it seems there has been an ever-increasing noise/vibration/hum that just seems to go on and on and gets louder and louder! The weird thing is: nobody but me seems to be affected by it! My husband has been complaining of a ringing in his ear for quite some time and I believe it’s this “thing” that’s causing it. (Recently, he has told me that he also hears the noise and when it’s loud, it makes the ear-ringing louder.) Here lately, it’s gotten so loud that I’m feeling/hearing the ringing in my ear, also. I don’t know what to do. It’s extremely debilitating. Seems absurd that I pay a mortgage and can’t even be comfortable in my own home. Currently, moving is not an option. Plus, moving may not be the thing to do, since I don’t know the basis of the noise/vibration/hum. For all I know (which is nothing!) maybe it’s not only in this area. :o/

  9. Loud bangs like thunder but clear evening with stars…lasted perhaps 5-10mins in St. John,s,newfoundland

  10. There were two extremely loud booms last night in the Bronx around 6:45pm by West 225th & Broadway. As a passenger on the local 1 train it was terrifying to hear. I have looked for news reports to find out what it was and have come up empty. There were tons of witnesses to the sound (on the train) but can’t even find any posts from them about it

  11. Heard several large booms around 2 am & could see flashes in sky over the trees to the west. It was loud enough to wake us. It continued for 5 minutes or longer. Heard one long rumble from inside sounding like thunder and appearing as lightening from a distance. But, skies are completely clear with stars all around. Very strange.

  12. just heard loud boom knocked out power for half a second almost like something hit nearby from sky, went outside to investigate then 2 minutes later another boom approx. 1-5 miles away followed by a small boom maybe 2 near South mountain area phoenix, az

  13. Just heard these booms in Salome, Arizona (60 miles from Parker) @ ~9:45p.m and one about 20 seconds later, that wasn’t quite as loud as the first. on May 17, 2017

  14. Same thing happened here in the Philippines last May 3, 2017. Some says it’s a sonic something. It was 8am-9am when I heard the blast.

  15. Florence, Oregon May 04, 2017 1:30 pm
    Strange Rumble from under the ground! From the North, south, west and east. All sounding off within a couple of minutes. Sounded like thunder! But the sounds came from under the ground.
    Several reports have surfaced on Local Facebook with same report.
    Maybe something is coming our way. . .

  16. Swanton, VT April 19th 1:45AM
    Heard a very large BOOM sound, sounded like a big explosion. I’ve only heard a few other person so far say that they also heard it from their home too. No local news reports as to any explosion accidents happening that day, wondering if this is also a mysterious boom that has no explanation???

    • 2nd May 2017 – Whanganui , North Island – NEW ZEALAND
      People from all over the area have reported the sound of a large explosion but no idea of what the source was. Police notified, Fire Brigade…the explosion sound has been reported to have been heard from up to 27.46 miles away in nearby townships. A similar incident occurred last year in a nearby town…same result (no explanation).No earthquakes registered (we are very familiar with)…
      A query…could it be a sound phenomena or radio frequency incidents between transmitter towers???

  17. Hundreds of residents in small Middlesex County, CT heard a loud explosion on April 16 around 3pm. We felt the ground shake. It was not fireworks, gunfire or thunder. Everyone who heard it expected to see smoke, or hear sirens, but nothing. There’s no explanation for it. There wwere, however, reports of a helicopter circling the area just moments prior to the “big boom.”

  18. Just heard 8 maybe even 10 loud booms like a bomb in the air went off. It shook the house and felt like an after shock. Tremor from a big earthquake.

    • Thunder like pulsating / heartbeat booms rattled our neighbourhood and a neighbouring town also felt it.

      Wasaga Beach, ON on March 25th

  19. We had explosion type noises across several counties in Pa. No storms, no fire…several people called LE! Shook windows and homes. This was 2/11/17. We have no idea what it was!

  20. (NTBM) Nuclear Tunnel Boring Machines….Underground Tunneling (Military Boring).I have been recording these sounds below my house since 2012.

  21. Im from Lachute Canada and this happened this weekend without the boom but that roar seemed like a metal train sound for 20 to 30 seconds on and off , i believed it was just some machinerie in the woods

    • Blanchard Ok last night I heard the same thing Oct 21 the noise was so loud it rattled my Windows And house for what seemed to never end (not thunder no way)
