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.
What do you think is causing this?
