Sounds similar to the nearby Seneca (Lake) Guns. 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.

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.

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.


Sounds about like the 'weather balloon' explanation.

Maybe it's fat women casing after the ice cream truck?
