According to the US Geological Survey (USGS) a "Sonic Boom" near Lake Tahoe on the California / Nevada border, registered on their Seismic sensors as a magnitude 2.9 EARTHQUAKE!
This is the SECOND TIME in two weeks that a "sonic boom" has been heard and felt in this specific region and no one can explain why it is taking place.
According to the military, there have not been any rockets or aircraft operating in the area which might account for such an event. Further, no one has reported seeing any type of meteor or other sky phenomena which would explain this.
THE USGS reported it as follows:
Back on April 22, local media around Lake Tahoe reported a meteor explosion had caused a sonic boom, and attributed that to the Lyrid Meteor Shower which was peaking at the time. Local reports on April 22 said:
"A loud boom that was heard and felt Sunday about 8am could be related to the Lyrid meteor showers.
While folks at the National Weather Service in Reno said they did not feel or hear anything, they did see something.
“I can tell you that I was speaking to a co-worker and she saw a flash across the sky,” meteorologist Mark Faucette told Lake Tahoe News. “If they are bright enough to see in the daytime, they are slightly bigger than the usual meteor.”
But Faucette stressed that he is no expert in these matters and that it is pure speculation on his part that what people heard-felt was related to the Lyrids – which were to peak this morning.
No one at CalTech’s Jet Propulsion Lab – where they deal with matters that are outside the Earth’s atmosphere – was available for comment.
Police dispatch in South Lake Tahoe said their phone has been ringing off the hook from callers asking what the commotion was. They don’t know what the cause of the noise was.
The latest "sonic boom" cannot be attributed to any meteor shower because none are taking place now.
Locals are beginning to fear the sounds are being generated from within the earth in advance of a possibly staggering earthquake to come.
