— “I can't point to any cause and that's concerning. You think it would show up on a seismograph somewhere.”
- Tony Cox, Morristown City Administrator
— “When the boom happened, it was just so fast -
quicker than a normal explosion. It was more like a hollow bang.
And then in the ground, it was like a wave underneath lifted me up.”
- Samuel Lopez, Geology Mining Tech, San Manuel, Arizona
February 16, 2013 Morristown, Tennessee and San Manuel, Arizona - Since my February 1, 2013, Earthfiles and Coast radio reports about the mystery of loud booms, flashes of light and shaking ground and buildings, I have received many more boom reports. This Part 1 focuses on the ongoing puzzle in Morristown, Tennessee, 48 miles northeast of Knoxville, where previously on Wednesday, January 23, 2013, between 1:00 and 3:30 AM, many West Morristown, Tennessee, residents called 911 to report “loud booms” that woke them up. In some cases, people said it sounded “like someone was breaking into my home.”
