Mysterious, Ground-Shaking Booms Are Hitting Tucson, AZ, Again and Again.

“There were mysterious booms beginning in 2013, then 2017, 2018, 2019 and now December 2020.”

— KOLD-TV Channel 13, Tucson, Arizona, December 29, 2020

 

December 30, 2020 Tucson, Arizona – Beginning yesterday morning, Tuesday, December 29, 2020, Tucson Channel 13 reported  “They’re back!,” referring to strange, loud, rumbling booms that have periodically shaken houses and ground in the Tucson region since 2013. Then this morning came another report from Tucson resident Steve Paguaga to Earthfiles.com:

December 30, 2020, email from Tucson resident about more ground-shaking loud boom sounds for the second day in Tucson, Arizona. The day before on December 29, 2020, at 10:44 AM local time, residents across the city of Tucson, population half a million, reported loud rumbling, followed by the ground shaking as far north as Catalina Foothills. And now this morning of December 30th, 2020, more loud, rumbling booms were reported coming from the Santa Catalina Mountains, about 40 miles from Davis-Monthan AFB, as described by Tucson resident Steve Paguaga in the above email to Earthfiles.com.
The Catalina Foothills are about 14 miles northeast of Monthan-Davis AFB, while further northeast the Santa Catalina Mountains are about 40 miles from the air base, which denies any responsibility for the loud, ground-shaking booms.

Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson, Arizona, is about 14 miles south of Catalina Foothills. Spokespeople for the AFB have insisted Davis-Monthan is not responsible for the loud, rumbling booms, "but are checking. We are aware of the reported loud boom in Tucson this morning (Dec. 29, 2020, but we did not have any aircraft capable of breaking the sound barrier flying at that time."
Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson, Arizona, is about 14 miles southeast of Catalina Foothills. Spokespeople for the huge AFB have insisted Davis-Monthan is not responsible for the loud, rumbling booms, “but we are checking. We are aware of the reported loud boom in Tucson this morning (Dec. 29, 2020), but we did not have any aircraft capable of breaking the sound barrier flying at that time.”

KOLD-TV also talked with staff at the Geosciences Department in the University of Arizona and mine operations in southern Arizona. The United States Geological Survey, USGS, is continually updating interactive maps that show all earthquakes above 2.5 on the Richter Scale. No seismic activity has been recorded on either December 29 or December 30, 2020.

A year ago in January to March 2019, other loud, rumbling, ground-shaking booms were also reported, and during that wave of mystery booms, at least one was strong enough to be recorded by the University of Arizona’s Geosciences seismometer. But no source was identified.

In 2017 there were also mystery booms heard in Phoenix —  146 miles northwest — said might have been caused by an aircraft training exercises at Luke AFB, but no confirmation.

Luke AFB in Phoenix, Arizona, is about 146 miles northwest of Tucson, Arizona.

A 2013 Tucson Boom Provoked Dozens of Calls to Police

— Email from Tucson, Arizona, Feb. 27, 2013:  I live NW of Tucson and for the past couple months we’ve been experiencing very strange “booms”. I don’t know how else to explain them. We just had another tonight. I could feel the whole house shake – it was unlike anything I’ve experienced. There was a low rumble along with it. It felt like 3 or 4 waves of rumbling. My husband had one happen earlier today – but it was much more violent, shorter in duration and he could feel the percussion impact like an explosion had gone off very close by. I called friends who live a couple miles away to see if they experienced it too – and they did. They have witnessed two incidents this week (I don’t think they were home when the one happened earlier today). I did call 911 and they said their phone was ringing off the hook and they said they had no idea what was going on and would get back to me. Wanted you to know because this is completely freaking me out.

Same day in San Diego, California:  Just wanted to report that there was a loud boom heard all over San Diego, Calif. at 10:00 AM Feb. 27, 2013. Loud enough to rattle windows. Authorities have no explanation. Military state that they heard it also and that there were no training sessions going on at the time.

If any Earthfiles viewer has more firsthand information about the loud, unexplained booms, light flashes and low-flying military helicopters or new military “sound gun” technology, please email:  [email protected]    All requests for confidentiality are honored.
