–“Just suddenly out of the blue came this enormous, deep boom.
It shook the windows, shook the whole house, and the floor.
It was notable for its power and its resonance.”
- Todd Seelye, retired college music professor, Cedar Falls, Iowa
— “It is unprecedented to have earthquakes in that part of Connecticut.
We have looked back into the record and before October 2014, we have not
observed any earthquakes all the way back to the 1600s (1638).”

January 30, 2015 Albuquerque, New Mexico - This New Year of 2015 got off to a BANG — quite literally — with mysterious loud boom events in FIFTEEN states so far. It began on New Year’s Day in Pennsylvania when hundreds of people throughout Luzerne County northwest of Philadelphia contacted police, fire departments and media. A farmer in a Wilkes-Barre suburb told WNEP-TV, “It sounded like a shotgun, but it felt more like an earthquake. It shook the house. Everything was vibrating.” She said her cows and pigs took cover and she had never seen that happen before.
