Big "BOOM" Heard In NC


At about 6:30 this evening a large boom was heard where I live in Wilmington, NC. Then about 16 minutes later, the house shook.

Keep in mind my travels and I lived in Cuba where marines bombing shook my house. So I don't panic easy.

This boom did not sound like any military thing I have heard.It is hard to explain.

The entire area of Wilmington to Leland NC called 911.

On the FOX early news we just heard the reports and they reported they contacted the local police/authorities and no plane crashes, nothing unusual in the 100 mile radius including Army and Marine bases and the historical Fort Story and the U.S.S. North Carolina.

The reporter actually said, it was a natural phenomena called Seneca Guns.

I googled, "Boom heard in Wilmington NC" and got this.

Apparently the same exact thing happened in 05.

quote:

DECEMBER 21, 2005 -- What's being described as a big boom shook houses along the coast late Tuesday afternoon. Phone calls started pouring into the newsroom shortly after 4:00, with people questioning what the noise was. Now WECT has obtained a tape with the boom recorded on it.

Alex Markowski is a professor at UNC Wilmington and a sound engineer working at the Screen Gems Studio in Wilmington. Tuesday afternoon, during a recording session with a crew from the NBC series Surface, the low frequency waves from the boom picked up sound on Markowski's equipment.

Some people described it as a loud bang. Others say it was like several explosions. They say their windows rattled and homes shook under the force.

WECT called 911 centers around the area. There were no reports of any accidents or damage in relation to the bangs. Officials at the nuclear power plant didn't report any problems either. Right now, authorities are just not sure what caused the noise.

One theory is a natural phenomena called Seneca Guns. It's never been fully explained but people along the coast have talked about it for centuries. Some say the sound originates when chunks of the continental shelf drop into the Atlantic Ocean.

It doesn't just happen along the coast. In fact, the name comes from Seneca Lake in New York where the big booms have been heard for years.

Five years ago, the Seneca Guns fired here. A scientist from UNCW said the rumbling came from the ocean, and there were various theories but no rock solid explanation. He said there was nothing to worry about. It was just noise. No one was hurt then and no damage was recorded.

It also happened in San Diego on a different date.

Also a blog in Spanish with English as you scroll down reports it.

Only God knows, what that boom was but it freaked me out.

Did any other NC's that post here,hear it?

Its actually alien craft breaking the speed of sound when they crash land in your area.

I would be on the look out for little green men.

They are actually purple and gold and will make you funnel large quantities of alcohol. There pretty cool if you ask me. Just don't be the first one to fall asleep.
