Niagara County mystery boom and shaking attributed to small tremor





Posted on October 27, 2012


October 27, 2012 NIAGARA COUNTY, N.Y. — A
loud, unexplained noise set off dozens of calls to the Niagara County
Sheriff’s Office Friday morning after residents reported hearing an
explosion so loud it shook their homes. It was the mystery boom heard
’round the world – or at least Niagara County that caused the Niagara
County Sheriff’s Office to field dozens of calls similar to this
exchange from concerned residents: Dispatch: “Niagara County 911 what’s
your emergency?” Caller: …I heard an explosion and my windows all shook.
Dispatch: “You don’t see any fire or anything? Caller: “No. No, I
don’t.” No fire and no damage but after several reports just after
midnight Friday, Niagara County Undersheriff Michael J. Filicetti said
deputies went to investigate. “We actually had several units respond
down to the, mostly it was the Newfane area, Town of Somerset, Barker
area,” he explained. “They checked around and couldn’t find anything.”
But they were offered plenty of suggestions, everything ranging from a
sonic boom to a meteor. “As of early this morning, we still hadn’t
figured out what caused it,” Filicetti said. According to officials at
Columbia University, it’s not out of the question for tremors like
Friday’s to be caused by landslides, sonic booms or even a meteor. In
this case, however, the source turned out to be a 2.5 magnitude
earthquake centered in the Town of Barker. So how do you explain that
mystery boom? “They likely experienced a jolt, and that jolt would
likely set one’s house in motion and I suspect that’s the noise they
heard,” Andrew Whittaker explained. Whittaker, a structural engineering
professor from the University at Buffalo, said it’s a common occurrence
with minor earthquakes so close to the surface. According to the U.S.
Geological Survey, the area sits on a fault line and experiences several
very minor quakes every few years, though none of any apocalyptic
proportions. “We have no evidence whatsoever that a large magnitude
event is around the corner,” Whittaker said. -Rochesterynn
