Mystery booms are still heard around Genesee, New York. This article cites several incidents around the country and focuses on this particular area.

It is a phenomena that has sparked curiosity throughout the country for several years now.

The booms, however, have grown more frequent.

Dr. Mark Castner, director of Braun-Ruddick Seismograph Station at Canisius College, told WIVB-TV in Buffalo that booms can be associated with an earthquake, quarry blasts, building implosions or sonic booms.

Seismographic records reported no unusual activity, however, and officials at Niagara Falls Air Reserve have had no aircraft flying in the area during the times of the reported booms.

The witnesses sometimes report that the dogs bark and the houses shake. I currently experience booms from a military testing area over 7 miles away. On some days, it DOES upset the dog. But making the house move is a very different thing. To cause movement, if indeed it DID do that (some people perceive movement based on the sound) in the house would suggest there is movement on the ground

Anybody checked to see if NK's testing again...?

People have alleged that the US military are working on supposedly secret seismic weapons. I'm not a fan of conspiracy theories, but I'd be surprised if they weren't!

Every time there is a boom, another bit of Florida falls into a sink hole. :shiftyninja:
Too soon?

They're just micro earthquakes. There was a few of them in this state last year:

My house moves when a truck drives past, if I have my head on the wall at night watching a film in bed it feels like when you put your head against the window of a bus or car when its moving

Maybe fracking is causing it

We had "mysterious booms" here for awhile. It turned out to be teenagers filling balloons with helium and exploding them at altitude. Well, that was the official report anyways.

I just think it was that new Science lab on the other side of the mountain, testing something.

There is some evidence to suggest that very shallow earthquakes or shallow changes in the subsurface, may sometimes cause audible noises but NOT register on seismographs

This sounds like the most reasonable explanation to me.

Sounds similar to the nearby [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seneca_Lake_(New_York)#Guns_of_the_Seneca"]Seneca (Lake) Guns[/url]. I heard them once while I was in Geneseo, NY fossil collecting. Never thought anything of it, till my room mate mentioned the local news talking about it.

Any Air Force bases nearby?

Microquakes are my guess. The upstate NY region is a hotbed of minor fault lines, thanks to past glacial activity that compacted the Earth's crust in the region. Now that the glaciers are gone, the crust is rebounding, causing the seismic events.

We get those here time and again. It is the Air Force base disposing of old munitions.

We live a good 10 miles away and it knocks pictures off our walls. They don't tell anyone when they are going to do it, either.

Sounds about like the 'weather balloon' explanation.
