Numerous Reports of Mysterious Booms and Strange Lights Over South Carolina
Several months ago I wrote an article entitled “Investigation Continues Into Source of Strange Michigan Area ‘Explosions’ and Radiation Spikes,”
where I reported on the mysterious sounds and vibrations felt by
countless individuals all over the state of Michigan. In this case, the
corporate media, law enforcement, and the military typically tried to
downplay the anomalies, even to the point of arresting activist
journalists for appearing at the local military base with questions as
to the nature of the disturbances.
In Michigan, residents all across the state and into Indiana, reported
hearing loud explosions which actually rocked the ground hard enough to
shake their houses. Bob Powell of The Truth Is Viral,
who lives in the area, and is himself a military veteran, described the
“explosions” as being similar to the firing of artillery both in sound
Recently, however, almost exactly the same kind of incident has occurred
in South Carolina, spanning the entire Pee Dee region and all the way
into North Carolina. On the evening of November 5, around 7:30-7:45
p.m., various law enforcement and local news agencies
were contacted by individuals living in the Pee Dee region of South
Carolina in reference to a loud “boom” that was large enough to shake
The reports were numerous around Pamplico,
Johnsonville, Marion, Hemingway, Aynor, Nichols, Hannah, and Mullins.
However, as stated earlier, reports also came from as far away as
Evergreen, North Carolina.
Marion County dispatchers alone received more than 100 calls in ten minutes related to the “booms.”
The US Geological Society has publicly stated that there was no seismic
activity in the region on these dates and emergency dispatchers
confirmed that there had been no plane crash.
Very soon after the event, Johnsonville Police Chief Ron Douglas,
claimed the “booms” were “from a handful of military aircraft” that had
broken the speed of sound.
However, this explanation, which was rapidly adopted by the local media,
does not hold water. For one thing, most of the individuals I have
spoken to (as well as myself) have heard jets break the sound barrier
before and both the sound and the impact of the mysterious “booms” were
much different than that of jets breaking the sound barrier.
Secondly, if the jets were the cause of the sound and of the heavy
vibrational impact that shook so many houses, the jets themselves would
have had to be flying very low. But, if the jets were flying low enough
for this type of effect to be achieved, witnesses would have also been
able to hear the jets.
myself, was in the area at the time of the incident. The sound, much
like what Bob Powell described sounded much more like artillery than any
other comparable sound. There was no lead up to the shaking, it was
simply as if one was experiencing the vibrations of an explosion.
The impact was so strong that one way to describe hearing and feeling
the impact from inside the house, it would be if one could imagine a
full grown adult climbing on top of the back of a couch or recliner and
leaping off, landing full force on the living room floor. Much like this
scenario, the impact was sudden and short-lived.
The sound, however, was extremely similar to the firing of artillery, much as Powell described it in Michigan.
The above incident occurred, as mentioned earlier, on November 5.
However, one week prior, a similar, albeit weaker, explosion was heard
in the same locations. Reports were made to this writer from both Marion
and Mullins in terms of the noticeable impacts and sounds of this
separate explosion. Like the first, the sound was similar to artillery,
the impact was also distinct but sudden and brief.
To my knowledge, there have been no mainstream local reports of the
earlier “explosion.” Also as in the second incident, I can personally
attest to the nature of the first.
Of course, the “explosions” themselves are mysterious and intriguing
enough. However, when one takes into consideration some accompanying
reports of other strange occurrences, the incident takes on a much more
Just after the second incident, a reporter from the Weekly Observer in
Hemingway stated that he saw several aircraft in the sky. He stated, “I
saw six jet aircraft with more lightning behind them than normal. This
would lead me to believe they were engaging their afterburners and thus
the super-sonic speeds and sonic-boom that followed.”
first, the reporters’ statement seems to corroborate the idea of the
“explosions” being caused by sonic booms. However, as I stated earlier,
if the jets that were making this sound were flying this close to the
ground as to be counted and the action of their afterburners clearly
seen, then many other individuals would have also heard the jets
themselves. Furthermore, the accompanying noises themselves simply did
not sound anything like a sonic boom. So, one must wonder exactly what
the alleged aircraft were doing in the area.
In addition, there had been military exercises conveniently scheduled a
few days before the second explosion and one day before the first. As reported by WBTW,
“There was an Air Force training exercise scheduled for the Pee Dee
region on Halloween morning, but nothing was announced for Monday.”
Others reported seeing what they believe to be helicopters. Joe Johnson
of Bridge Neck stated, “ I saw the lights they looked like helicopters.
Then there was a loud roar.”
Again, Johnson’s description of strange lights is also a common report
coming from sources who felt the explosions as well as those who did
Many of those who felt the “explosions” reported seeing “bright lights”
just beforehand. Others, were reporting “strange lightning” in the skies
in the days leading up to the explosions.
With reports of this nature growing in scope from Michigan to South
Carolina and, indeed, all over the country, there is clearly something
happening. The question, of course, is what?
As Bob Powell stated in regards to Michigan’s mysterious incident, “If
you’re looking for information in the local media, good luck. Because
they’re not saying a word.”
