Weird Noise Phenomena in Florida

Two very weird phenomena stories

Two very weird phenomena stories out of Florida beginning on March 9 when residents in Flagler County located on the east coast of Florida reported a loud noise–’very strange sounds’ that lasted ‘up to 20 minutes’. [Video, which is pretty amazing, below] Nine days later, one day before the Super Moon, scared Floridians near Tallahassee, located over 200 hundred miles to the northwest of Flagler County, reported the ground and buildings shaking.


The explanation for the extremely loud noise in Flagler County from the National Weather Service:

(Global Rumblings has posted this Florida video before: )


Earthquake "booms" have been reported for a long time, and in the US they tend to occur more in the Northeastern US and along the East Coast. There have been many reports of "booms" that cannot be explained by man-made sources. No one knows for sure, but scientists speculate that these "booms" are probably small shallow earthquakes that are too small to be recorded, but large enough to be felt by people nearby. In New Madrid, Missouri, there are accounts of "artillery-like" sounds that were said to have occurred before or during the New Madrid earthquakes of 1811-1812.

Mystery booms coming from deep in the plate boundary were reported in Indonesia for many months before the December 2004 quake and tsunami.

Over the past fifty years Floridians have periodically heard unexplained booming sounds. These acoustical mysteries have occurred in both the atmosphere and underground. In the 1950s, booming sounds were frequently heard in the Ocala National Forest but most of those were attributed to the military’s Ocala Bombing Range. However, in more recent times the same kind of sounds have been heard over a wider area without any apparent connection to military activities. People described the sounds “like a super-sonic aircraft makes when it breaks the sound barrier.” Windows would rattle and the ground would shake which caused some people to say it was coming from underground. 

On January 25th and 26th, 1994, several sonic booms were heard across Central Florida with reports coming from Leesburg, Ocala, Gainesville, Dunnellon, and as far east as Deland. Seismographs at the University of Florida, that are capable of detecting vibrations as far away as China, showed no record of the acoustical phenomenon. When contacted by the authorities, local military installations at Tampa and Jacksonville said the sounds were not made by military aircraft. Likewise, the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) could offer no explanations for the bizarre booms. A few people claimed to have heard a quick “double boom” similar to what Central Floridians experience when the Space Shuttle breaks into the atmosphere just before landing. However, there were no shuttles flying during this period. A meteorologist, speaking on the evening news, theorized that the noise could have originated some place other than Florida, like an acoustical mirage caused by the inversion of air…but made audible over Florida. For lack of any other explanation, the theory sounded good on the evening news…albeit the average person found it rather difficult to understand.

There are references to strange booming sounds worldwide, some going back to the 1800s. The famed Barisal Guns of India is one example that has been heard periodically for a century. The Barisal booms sound like cannons and are only heard during heavy rains in the Ganges Delta. In the United States there is a similar phenomenon in New York called the Lake Guns of Seneca. All of these cases continue to baffle scientists. 

Residents along Florida’s west coast have on occasion reported hearing “cannon-like detonations on clear mornings when the air is thin.” One boater sailing twenty miles off Cedar Key in 1996 said he heard sounds like “distant cannons” on the Gulf of Mexico. He recounted having heard the sounds just before sunrise and that they were repeated several times in five minute intervals. Strangely, the booms seem to come from no specific direction. The sea was calm with only a slight breeze and no clouds. In this case the experts speculated that the noise came from natural gas eruptions beneath the sea.

In February 1969, people on Jacksonville Beach reported hearing strange rattling sounds coming from two overhead clouds. A woman described the sound in a newspaper article as “like constant crumpling of cellophane.” There were no abnormal weather conditions in this case, no storms, or any other possible cause for the rattling clouds. Just one week later the same unexplained phenomenon was experienced by Miami Beach residents.

In November 1985, unexplained booms were heard at Kennedy Space Center following a shuttle launch. The mysterious sound had nothing to do with the launch. NASA clammed up about it, but researchers later found that the same thing had happened following the two previous launches. One physicist theorized that the sound could have been caused by the Soviets testing a secret electro-magnetic weapons grid system, which allegedly focused on the space shuttle in order to make technical adjustments in a worldwide EM grid network. The theory sounded great, or at least intriguing, but for the average non-physicist it was downright difficult to comprehend. Therefore no elaboration will be offered here, suffice to say it was another explanation to consider.

On May 7, 1996, sonic booms shook windows in Flagler, Marion, Volusia, Brevard, Orange, and Seminole counties. Lesser vibrations were felt as far south as West Palm Beach and as far north as Alachua County. The facilities at Kennedy Space Center experienced this noise too, but NASA claimed it had nothing to do with the shuttle operations. Some people thought it was an earthquake but the seismograph station in Gainesville registered no earth tremors. Once again all the suspect agencies and military were contacted, but all denied having anything to do with it and could offer no explanations. One remote possibility, according to a geologist, was that the sound may have been caused by the collapse of a subterranean aquifer. Underground aquifers hold our drinking water and are huge. If a good size chunk of ceiling fell inside an aquifer it would no doubt create a jolt underground. The only problem with this theory is that geological instruments had not picked up any activity. 

Manatee County was hit with an unexplained thunderous boom in June 2003 that rattled windows and shook the ground. The only accountable explosion in the area was an electrical transformer that exploded in St. Petersburg but it was ruled out as the cause. Pensacola had experienced three similar booms in January of 2003, which some tried to blame on military testing in the Gulf of Mexico, but the authorities denied that it had anything to do with the military.

Many explanations have been offered for Florida’s weird booming sounds. The experts have had no problem in explaining what did not cause the sounds, but cannot say what did cause them. So, the booming remains another Florida mystery.

Felt the Earth Move Under Her Feet

I am sure you heard about the strange booms that were heard in Central Florida. We heard them in Pine Hills too and I thought it was the shuttle coming in but it wasn’t. Everyone was talking about it being a small earthquake but it wasn’t. We were outside and what I heard was two back to back loud muffled booms and with each one you could definitely feel the ground shake. Does anyone know what caused this? –Patty K.

Sound Came From All Around

A long time ago when we lived just outside of Fort White, Fla. there was a loud sound that sounded like an artillery gun. This was a rural area and everybody was pretty much aware of things and knew that nobody was dynamiting anything. We were puzzled by the sound but what was more odd is that nobody could agree on which direction the sound came from. Some said it was in the air and others said it was from the ground and some said it was east or west or north. It was like it was all around. I think that was in 1962 or 3, but the recent booms that were heard in Brevard County reminded me of what we heard. I’d bet it was the same thing that caused it. –Mrs. J. W. K.

    the wicked can kill our bodies but can't kill our souls. turn to Jesus Christ. WHOSOEVER turns to Jesus will be saved. " I am the Way the Truth and the Life and no man comes to the Father but by me". Jesus Christ the blood of the Lamb of God covers our sins, we need no priest anymore. Jesus is the New Covenant and is the Priest and Mediator between God and man. He is part of the god-head not anyone else, man or woman can save us.He is the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD !It is a lie if we think 'others' pagan gods or goddesses( aliens) fallen beings in disguise today... can save us. True Christians are no longer Jews but followers of Jesus, the " Alpha and the Omega" the beginning and the end. Happy Easter. or really...Happy Day celebrating the Rising of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ after he was prophesied in the OT, to die in the hands of the Jews to fulfill Biblical prophecy of dying for our sins, for He is the only One born without sin, born of a Virgin through the line of King David. the Bible already writes of strange 'signs and wonders' in the last days. I have seen some...ufo's. heard those sounds... experienced fallen beings, but the best of all. After knowing Jesus,knowing He is ALIVE...had his healings, his miracles, his saving our lives and souls. And seeing Him. NOTHING at all compares to God. Everything else, riches...or whatever seems now like dung and truthfully rather boring after EXPERIENCING the LIVING GOD.Personally, most churches are dead and know not God.they are just 'religious' like the pharasees and scribes of Jesus time on earth. the letter of the law kills and God wants mercy not sacrifice.

    I used to be catholic. i don't believe 'our lady' was Mary but a fallen being masquerading as Mary, who in the Bible is a real beautiful person, in which I was named after for a middle name. Many who saw this apparition in Portugal...said they really saw a ufo, disk and it came close down and dried everything for it had rained. this is a pagan goddess who lies and says she is Mary. It is Astarte, Jesus is the only one born without sin, " only Begotten Son of God" and is the only one qualified to take our sins away, hence Easter Sunday. He is the mediator between God and man, not Mary. read the Bible if you really dare to. Personally, I don't like being lied to by the 'church'. The Bible already talked about the tribulation, anti-christ and the last days. Jesus said it would be the worse time in history. the Catholic Bible says the same. hello, anybody believe in world peace? when the Bible said there would not be peace?including the apostles who followed Jesus and died for the true faith of the Word of God. does it look like peace with ufo's and all the strange 'signs and wonders' Jesus said would happen? of fallen angels and beings who hate God?last day stuff...

  4. To the second 'Anonymous' .. No one likes being lied to by any church, any authority. As long as there are humans in positions of authority, there will be human failings. Mary has never claimed to 'take our sins away' either in the bible or in Marian Apparitions, she always defers to the Father, and to her son Jesus. God's creation is vast and lush and includes a huge loving family, one of which is a loving mother, his own mother, Mary who Jesus gave to us as our mother too as he was dying on the cross. "John, behold thy mother." Many human beings have the need to connect to family, and I choose to believe that the loving Mary is not Astarte, but the spirit of Mary, the mother of Jesus. It is always important to test the spirits. By their fruits you will know them. The Marian apparitions have Mary come as a loving mother asking us to listen to her son Jesus, to follow him and to reform our lives,

    no one can prove the apparitions 'from Mary' are really Mary? test the spirits? tell it to go away in the Name of Jesus and it will flee, but no one does this because they are indoctrinated by the catholic church who does not follow scriptures or the Word of God. fallen angels can bring miracles...but they are not from the Father ,Son or Holy Ghost. we worship no man or angel, including Mary. this is a sin. follow Jesus Christ and no other. Satan is the father of lies and the apparitions also have many that have 'ufo's around at the same time, or same time as these apparitions. ( evil manifestations of fallen beings and angels. Only Jesus can save and there will be no world peace. this is a lie in itself and proves the visions of so called 'Mary' are a lie.It is not her. Jesus said, " I am the way the truth and the life and no man comes to the Father but by me". He alone is God and we can not listen to man or angels as our guide. the Holy Bible has the truth and Jesus or the apostles never put Mary on a pedestal. Even Mary said that Jesus was her Lord and Savior. she is not a messenger of God, but a pagan goddess is and it is not Mary , the earthly mother of Jesus who was born with sin. the Bible alone tells the truth, not 'traditions of men' making God a liar by ignoring scriptures. Jesus can handle himself alone. He is God and Mary was is earthly mother and not ours. She was born a sinner like the rest of us except One Person, Jesus Christ, the only Begotten Son of God who fulfilled scriptures and died for mankind's sins who turn to Him and repent and believe in HIS NAME and no other.

    Heard one of these mystery booms today in Tampa, FL, around Noon. It sounded very deep and distant, was not sustained, but cause some slight rattling in the building where I work. This is the second one I've heard within the past 3-4 weeks. I know we have MacDill AFB in tosn, but I grew up next to a military aviation base and never heard sounds like this.

    1. Anonymous10:04 AM

      i was Busch Gardens that day.. and several people heard them.. sounded like payloads being dropped.. but far off to the east.. was not coming from McDill..

    twice last year oct. nov 2011 i herd the sonic boom but more like a k-boom not a reentry shuttle baboom as i have herd many times in 20 years living in florida. there has also been a clink clink clink sound like heavy chain ractheting along. then stops and starts again all thru the night some nights. also the loud scraping iron on cement sound scraping and humming sounds. the kaboom sound came from the south east like over lake okeechobee. the rest of the sounds were total surround sounds. no idea however they all have except the chain clinking sound have been herd after these cell towers being built. they are many around here now the last few years.

    well govt underground is pushed as Cheney but I see it is as a sign as tornadoes are tormentors on Harry potter what is going on is warning from God as such repent from the govt as sabotage considered a job and evil is what is illegal so we have a distorted idea of God as christ But I think God is material corporeal and the brain holds totality how? there is time for God not just for you alone as God the recipe for how is to use the idea of creation to be sent back into the past and become the cause for all. Oh it is real it is dam real
