The BOOM

Draig Cailleach

73 views

So, today, I was sitting on my couch with my son, and out of nowhere a huge BOOM shakes the house. I called my mother to see if she heard/felt it, and not only did she, but apparently it was both heard and felt miles and miles away. And afterwards it sounded like there was thunder rolling for a good ten minutes. Nobody knows what it was as far as I've heard.

Probably thunder. The closer it is the louder it sounds.

What is a “bolt from the blue”?
A “bolt from the blue” is a cloud-to-ground flash which typically comes out of the side of the thunderstorm cloud, travels a relatively large distance in clear air away from the storm cloud, and then angles down and strikes the ground. These lightning flashes have been documented to travel several miles away from the thunderstorm cloud. They can be especially dangerous because they appear to come from clear blue sky.

A helmeted bicyclist experienced a lightning strike to the head under fair weather conditions with a cloudless sky. It was determined that the bolt probably originated in a thunderstorm that was about 16km (approximately ten miles) away and obscured by mountains.

As far as I know, there was no flash. I didn't see one and from what others are saying, they hadn't seen one either. Some people are saying it was a "sonic boom", but I'm not sure about that, either. And if it was, that only leads to more questions. I know there's a place, and I can't remember where it is now, but the town gets random, huge booms, I think daily, and nobody knows why. I'm wondering if maybe it was something like that, but that still doesn't answer what it is.

If it was a sonic boom it will be reported in your area.

That's what I'm waiting to find out. So far I still haven't heard anything one way or the other
