America: Mysterious Loud Booms Reported Across Georgia, Arizona, Rhode Island, Alabama, Texas

By MICHAEL MILLER, WJBF-TV – “Columbia County, GA –Columbia County officials say that more people reported hearing mysterious booms over the last few days. Some people said the blasts were so loud that they were awakened from sleep. Local experts still don’t know what the cause is, but now the reports aren’t limited to just Columbia County.

Early this week, reports starting flooding into the Columbia County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) about loud booms in the area.

‘Appling, Harlem is the typical area we are looking at here. Of loud booms, rumbling. Now we’re hearing about pictures being moved on walls,’ says Pam Tucker, who is the director of the Columbia County EMA

A man who lives on Louisville Road, near Grovetown, says he also heard the mysterious booms. He wouldn’t speak to us on camera, but he told us the blast shook his house early Tuesday morning. He says when he walked outside, his driveway had new cracks in it. Since he lives near a rock quarry, he figured that’s what it was.

‘We have already checked and our seismologist says that there is no activity on any of our equipment, as far as earthquakes. We’ve already called all the rock quarries, there was no blasting during any of those times,’ says Tucker.

Friday afternoon, Tucker says she may have found a lead on what the cause of the booms could be. In a YouTube video, people are shooting at a device called an Earth Shaker. It’s full of gun powder and when it explodes, it’s apparently powerful enough to shake the ground. But this week there have also been other reports of loud booms in other cities, some in Arizona, Rhode Island, Alabama, and Texas. Could there be another explanation?” Read more.

    I didn’t hear any boom, but I did feel a “Wave” . My house kinda creaked from one end to the other. I was thinking earthquake, but it was only one wave and no shaking. Very slow wave. I’m in South West GA.
