Residents have been left perplexed by a series of strange noises and rumblings in Clintonville.

Exact descriptions of the sounds vary from person to person but are generally said to be similar to the sounds of thunder, firework explosions or rattling metal. There have also been reports of earthquake-like vibrations accompanying the sounds. US Geological Survey records show no indication of seismic activity in the region and the military have denied any involvement. "It's like we're imagining things but it ain't, because we're all out and talking to find out what's going on," said one resident.

"Mysterious explosions. Unexplained shaking."

I thought maybe it could be connected to that old theory where the GREAT LAKES WILL EVENTUALLY MERGE. Or maybe an underground volcano rising up... All I know is that I personally am not going to the dells this year, I will try to stay out of Wisconsin all together. I did not read all the posts so it this is a repeat idea than I am sorry.

They finally recorded one and USGS has analyzed it as the sound pattern of an earthquake. You can listen to it here: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2012/03/mysterious-booms-return-to-clintonville-wisconsin/

One article also states that five countires of reports in Georgia, in Alabama and Virginia of people hearing these booms on March 18. However the USGS had no seismic evidence of any earthquakes. It does`nt make any sense that only one small 1.5 earthquake in Wis would have cause all the booms.

The northern United States was so compressed by the tremendous weight of the glacial ice packs during the moat recent ice ages that the landscape is STILL slowly popping back up into shape. This creates booming noises underfoot, but rarely causes serious damage.

Could these sounds have anything to do with HAARP?

AN investigation has been launched into the cause of a mysterious boom which shook buildings across the Island on Saturday afternoon. Hundreds of Islanders reported hearing a loud bang – similar to a sonic boom – at 1.04 pm. The boom was so loud it rattled doors and windows from Gorey to St Ouen and even measured on the Island’s seismograph in St Aubin. But despite speculation that the noise was caused by a military jet travelling faster than the speed of sound, Jersey Airport has confirmed that no aircraft capable of causing such a noise was in the Island’s airspace at the time. And Jersey Me... [More]

Could these sounds have anything to do with HAARP? It would need to be a helluva big harp to cause ground shaking, imo.
