For the past month, residents in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, have been reporting mysterious booms overnight. However, nobody — not even local authorities — can explain.
Now, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has arrived in Upper Bucks and Lehigh Counties to investigate the nighttime explosions. Springfield Township police say that multiple earth-shaking booms occurred as recent as 4 a.m. on Tuesday, according to KYW-TV.
While federal authorities are circling the region in search of the source, everyone is puzzled at what is causing the explosions.
“I thought that somebody was making a tunnel or space junk fell out of the sky,” said Susan Crompton, who lives in Haycock Township.
“From poachers, gunfire, to explosions to a sonic boom,” said Jerry Hertz of the mysterious sound.
KYW-TV said there had been no shortage of theories among residents, but still, no clear answer of the cause.
“It’s a rumble, it actually like rumbles the ground like an earthquake would happen but with a loud like boom,” Crompton added.
“I’ve been in the military, I’ve got experience with explosives, I was a Navy diver and that was definitely not a gunshot,” Hertz said.
Since early April, local law enforcement agencies have noticed that all reported booms have taken place between the 2 a.m. and 4:30 a.m.
Crompton and her daughter have heard the booms twice, indicating that it felt like an explosion, as it shook her house.
“It is imperative that we get the information as soon as possible in order to track these events,” said police.
What is even more perplexing, is that another explosion was reported on early Sunday morning in Nockamixon Township. Resident Nick Zangli told the Bucks County Herald “it was one hell of an explosion,” who lives down the street from a 4-foot wide by 1-foot deep cavity, which he alleges opened up after the blast.
Zangli said there was “nothing in the hole, which was filled with water because of heavy rain over the weekend.” Law enforcement came out Monday to investigate the sinkhole but did not respond to any media requests.
Mysterious booms are not just limited to Pennsylvania. There are local media reports from all across America of booms rocking towns from coast to coast. While officials have zero answers to provide their citizens, it is hard to prepare for an event if it is not yet identifiable. Mother nature is knocking and something does not seem right. Have you prepared?
I feel so much better knowing the FBI is checking it out now. Is it Mulder and Scully?
It can’t be them because they are too busy filming season 11 of the X-Files right now.
Scully quit after this season. Doubt they will continue without her. I found myself watching the previous season after they came out with 10. Love the X-Files!
That was just me after eating beans.
WHAT KIND OF BEANS, I WANT SOME.
They have it backwards. The booms are not causing the shaking. The ground is moving (earthquake) near the surface and the movement itself not large (compared with earthquakes generally) but may involve a large area and is very fast and a loud boom results. I’ve witnessed a similar event, in which air pressure changed drastically for a few seconds and you could hear it whooshing powerfully then it stopped. Depends on the type of movement.
The different times of the events, that they tend to occur at night, might have something to do with the ambient temperature.
A large stone layer, not far from the surface of the earth, and under a lot of pressure, and the pressure is increasing, at some point it will break, and when it does a loud sound would result. These events might not be new, or they might be. Or they may have been occurring before but not as often. Records of past such events would be helpful in determining this. If these events are the result of new patterns of earth movements generally it might truly be very bad news overall.
Maybe there are secret operations occurring in the area.
In northeastern NC, there is Harvey Point, which is Navy, but also has CIA operations. There are occasionally loud explosions that can be heard for many miles.
Its the gov making tunnels for the elite…
Pennsylvania…the Fracking center of the Northeast
Fracking has consequences, some would say.
Fracking has consequences, period.
Your ignorance is showing. There is NO “K” in Fracturing. Also, fracing doesn’t cause this, or any other negative effects. Piss off you tree-hugging hippy mfer.
A small local group is testing various ‘projects’.
Jesus H and Mary, now what? It is always some kind of craziness going on in this country – why is that?? I would be willing to bet that the Gov’t is yet at it again people…
If the Government is foing it, they sure as hell aren’t going to let the people know where or why. They will say we do not have a need to know and that is all We the People will be told. Don’t do too much snooping or you will end up where the booms are coming from and will never be seen or heard from again. /
Yes, fracking is most definitely bad.
I’ve seen first hand what it can do.
It uses ALOT of fresh water I mean alot.
I’ve driven the trucks that haul it out of rivers lakes and ponds. Imagine 35 tankers each loading 40 m3 in 5 minutes going round the clock for 48 hours I’ve seen rivers dropped so low you can walk across ankle deep
“…The FBI is investigating….” The fox has been assigned to investigate something suspicious in the hen house.
Call Moldy and Scummy…
When the space shuttle used to land at Cape Canaveral they took a course over Tampa so I know what a sonic boom sounds like. It’s like a double clap in rapid succession. Even now I hear sonic booms in Tampa occasionally so my assumption is that it’s the military training out over the Gulf of Mexico – and I’m sure they would do it a long ways off shore so my guess is they are at least 40 miles away. So my bet is that these people are hearing sonic booms – the military pilots know that no one can prove its them because it’s impossible to tell which direction the sound is coming from.
rrrr, you are absolutely right. I heard the booming sound is the earth expanding somehow,some way. It happened here in Tucson awhile ago. Me and the neighbor ran outside wondering what the hell it was
Local AFB denied any jets flying around. But I agree, “what the hell is going on now in this country “? And why is the FBI investigating? Have they nothing else to do? No terrorists running around? No one robbing a bank? No more elections to rig?
They’re going to take a break from their usual, well.. whatever it is they do.. to actually investigate something?
Well, the military wouldn’t retire the SR-71 Blackbirds without having other aircraft of it’s likeness ready or near ready to fill in it’s place.
They retired it in 99′ or so and while we have other stealth aircraft, we don’t(to our knowledge)have another aircraft similar to the Blackbird.
JMHO, but I think that these are the sonic booms created by new, advanced aircraft we haven’t seen yet that replaced the Blackbird.
