Unexplained boom baffles experts, residents: heard in four Illinois counties

Posted on March 21, 2013 by The Extinction Protocol

March 21, 2013 ILLINOISThe
mystery of the “loud boom” heard in parts of the region over the
weekend may go unsolved, as efforts to find the source of the boom
proved a bust Monday. Hundreds of people in at least four counties —
Franklin, Hamilton, Saline and Williamson — flocked to social media to
report hearing a windows-rattling, earth-shaking boom between 1 and 2
p.m. Saturday. No damages or injuries were reported as a result of the
boom. “I have no way of knowing exactly what occurred but it was not
likely an earthquake,” geophysicist Don Blakeman of the National
Earthquake Information Center said. “There is nothing on our lists, only
the last one on the 11th (near Benton).” Some earthquakes are heard as
well as felt, he said, but if it was so widespread as to be heard in
four counties, “We would be able to locate it as an earthquake,” he
said. “Typically, when loud booms are heard it turns out to be a sonic
boom, although I’m not saying that’s what it was in this instance.”
However, if the boom was sonic in nature, it wasn’t caused by military
action. Neither Scott Air Force Base nor the North American Aerospace
Defense Command reported activity taking place in the region Saturday.
“We were not in that area with any of our assets,” a NORAD spokesman
said. A Scott Air Force spokeswoman confirmed no Scott or
military-related activities or exercises took place in Southern Illinois
over the weekend. The boom was not weather-related, according to
meteorologist Robin Smith of the National Weather Service in Paducah
said. Nor was it related to any coal mining activity, a spokeswoman for
the Illinois Office of Mines and Minerals said. The swarm of social
media postings caused Franklin County Emergency Management Agency
Director Ryan Buckingham to make his own post on the agency’s Facebook
page. “Residents in Franklin County are
reporting what was described as a ‘ground-shaking loud boom’ during the
day on Saturday 3/16/2013
. USGS (U.S. Geological Survey) has not
reported any earthquake activity in our area during that time, leaving
the cause of these reports as somewhat of a mystery,” Buckingham wrote.
The mystery was not cleared up by Monday, he said. “We picked it up
first on social media. A lot of people heard it but didn’t have a source
for it,” Buckingham said. “I put a feeler out on Facebook because if
there is a threat to public safety, that’s something we need to know
about it, but no one had any idea what caused it.” While the source of
the boom has yet to be traced, Buckingham said it should serve as a
reminder for residents to have a plan in place in case of emergency. –The Southern
