Another Strange Boom Occurs In West Michigan

A strange boom and “violent shaking” were reported in West Michigan on Sunday, and officials still have no explanation for their cause.

It happened in the evening, with residents from multiple counties reporting the incident. Union County residents in particular reported strange noises at around 10:30 p.m., though it apparently went on throughout the night and into the morning.

No earthquakes were recorded in the region. No planes were in the air that would have caused a sonic boom. Houses shook, and at least two trees snapped in half in Oshtemo, Michigan.

Reportedly, some mused that the booms had been caused by fireworks, but that wouldn’t explain the shaking and probably wasn’t the cause.

This situation is very similar to what happened in Sooke, BC, Canada earlier this year, when a loud boom and violent shaking occurred, leading to the complete destruction of a small barn.

In fact, the past year or so has been filled with these strange reports, of odd rumblings, hums, shakings, and unexplainable noises.

What do you think is causing this?

  1. If I were a scientist, i would dig into the effects the solar storms the earth has been hit by recently and see if there is an adverse effect on the earth’s core/stability. These sounds all sound like metal twisting and bending. The earth is mineral based and the sounds heard could be the earth shifting or moving below us.
