- When: Most recently in November and December of 2014, but a mystery that has been going on since 2011
- Where: All over the world, including Texas and specifically, Dallas
- What: Loud booms, trumpeting, persistent rumbling (thundering), and other strange sounds around the world
Earthquakes? Top secret military jets? Explosions? The... Apocalypse?!? Say it isn't so! Everyone's hearing loud rumbling noises that persist for several minutes at a time, strange booming, horns, and other haunting tunes outside their door.
Earthquakes have been making some unusual appearances lately - in Irving and Venus (Dallas area). And in fact, on December 18th, a Dallas resident posted the following on a forum:
"Anyone around DFW just hear that one. Im not freaking out or nothing will all these other boom threads just find it odd."
Reports like these have been coming and going since 2011. Recently in April 2014, Texas UFO Sightings reported a phenomenon like this in San Antonio.
This phenomenon is a worldwide, well-docucmented one. Check out the following YouTube video featuring an account of "mysterious booms" in the UK and New York on November 22nd, the very same day the big earthquake occurred in Irving, TX. The sound you hear is a persistent, loud, yet muffled thundering noise:
The sound was almost defining. I thought it was a jet that was going to literally crash right on top of the house. When we went outside there was nothing, but still a defining sound. It lasted for more than 10 mins. The sound did NOT fade and reappear but was a constant very, very loud jet noise just like in the vid. It came from the sky. Very weird!!!
Even Texas UFO Sightings received a comment about it:
was tailgating at a texas aggie football game and a friend and I both heard what sounded strange at first, and we looked at each other and he said did you hear that and I said yes it sounded like a horn, we heard it twice at different times, but it was really a strange sound.
One YouTuber was able to track down some local news footage of an Alabama weather man suggesting that the loud booms heard by his audience are due to military activity. He was tipped off by weird-looking radar! (see image to the right)
So... what do you think is happening?
