Investigation Continues Into Source of Strange Michigan Area 'Explosions' and Radiation Spikes

It appears that questions regarding the strange “explosions” which occurred all over the state of Michigan days ago are only continuing to grow.

With a puzzling lack of interest even from the local media, complete silence by law enforcement/military outlets, and activist investigators being arrested for attempting to obtain a statement at a U.S. military base, one would clearly be justified in wondering if there is not a cover up in the works.

For those unfamiliar with the story, throughout June 6-7 Michigan residents from all corners of the state began to report hearing loud “explosions” that actually rocked the ground hard enough to shake their houses.

Although some reports have focused on the “explosions” occurring in the Northern Indiana/Southern Michigan area, other reports have revealed that these “explosions” have also been heard and felt near Saginaw (Central Eastern Michigan) and on up to Northern Michigan.

“Explosions” are the only way to explain these types of sounds, because no one is claiming that ground movement was the result of an earthquake or anything else commonly seen. Indeed, after speaking with Bob Powell of The Truth Is Viral, it has been described as similar to the firing of artillery both in terms of sound and impact.

Whatever the cause, the fact is that the explosions must have been massive in scale – enough to trigger reports of them for at least 100 square miles – yet, at the same time, so small as to not cause serious enough damage as to be readily apparent.

There are, however, numerous reports of an area where 60-foot trees are now inexplicably missing their tops, and many that were simply snapped in half. This apparently occurred around the same time as the mysterious “explosions.” There is no evidence as to what might have caused this damage as of yet. Indeed, Bob Powell described this area as being “out in the middle of nowhere.”

And then there is the matter of radiation spikes in the Southern Michigan/Northern Indiana region. This was reported by two privately owned radiation measurement facilities, BlackCatSystems and Radiation Network, as well as some individual radiation monitors, which communicated an alarming increase in the level of radiation in the area around the same time the mysterious “explosions” were felt and heard.

Although normal radiation levels in this region usually stay at or around 5-6 CPM (Counts Per Minute), on the evening of June 6, radiation levels skyrocketed to 7,139 CPM. This figure was reported by both of the private radiation measurement facilities. It should be noted that both of these facilities are separately operated.

According to Anthony Gucciardi of Natural Society, these figures were confirmed by the EPA’s own radiation level readings. However, the actual EPA levels were quickly hidden from the viewing of the general public, and the EPA online measuring tool was disabled. Subsequently, Radiation Network and BlackCat announced that they had experienced “technical difficulties” and “errors in the system” resulting in a change in the readings posted online.

Of course, the possibilities for false readings always exist, but the fact that both of these systems “malfunctioned” at the same time and produced the same reading seems a bit more far-fetched. If Gucciardi’s claims are true, then it would be just as likely that the spikes in radiation were real but were edited once attention was drawn to them.

In addition, Gucciardi also writes that startling increases in radiation levels have been recorded by private individuals as far away as Colorado.

With all of these very strange “coincidences,” one obviously wonders what could have caused such loud “explosions” with such a level of impact.

Furthermore, one must wonder what could have caused the tree damage which was reported, as well as the increased levels of radiation.

For instance, Bob Powell states that there are no fracking projects being conducted for at least 150 miles. If this is true, then the likelihood of fracking as the source of the “explosions” is minimal. Likewise, Powell says that he contacted NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency) and was told there was no seismographic evidence of any earthquake or even any explosion in the region.

Powell also stated that he was reassured by the relevant authorities that sinkholes, another hypothesis put forward by puzzled onlookers, could not have produced the “boom” that was heard by so many.

All of these questions seem like a local journalist's dream. However, at least at this point, the local media has refused to investigate the cause of the “explosions” even in the face of so many Michigan witnesses.

One could argue that there is a similarity between the Michigan “explosions” and the Wisconsin groaning noises which were heard by small town residents on what was, at one time, a regular basis. Although the citizens largely knew that the “official” explanations for the noises was rubbish, the local media quickly accepted whatever claims were put out to the general public and ceased coverage.

But at least they did cover it at the beginning. That’s much more than can be said about the Michigan media. Thus, it has once again fallen on local activists and the alternative media to uncover the events surrounding these bizarre occurrences.

Of course, this is exactly what local activists and independent media have tried to do. Indeed, they might be more successful at doing so if they were not being handcuffed and interrogated for simply trying to obtain an official PR statement from the Alpena Regional Combat Training Center, which is exactly what happened to Bob Powell.

Powell claims that when he attempted to enter the military base, as he has done on numerous occasions before when attached to CBS, he was instructed to park in the designated area. When he returned to the guard shack, he was met by security where he was arrested. Bob Powell states:
I went up to the guard shack and I was handcuffed and put down on my knees, legs crossed, you know, the whole nine yards. . . . . . And all of a sudden here comes a bunch of Air Force security guys with M-4s and I said 'So are you gonna put a bullet in the back of my head now?' But surprisingly, the answer was 'No.' But it turns out that I’m on a list. And I can only assume it’s because of the work that I’ve been doing so far. And I’m no longer allowed on military reservations. And, apparently, I can’t even film outside of a military installation. . . . . I was, I wouldn’t say interrogated, but I was talked to about what I was doing there and what my purpose was and all that. I was held in custody for about two hours. And the Air Force didn’t do anything. They released me to the Sheriff’s Department.
Powell states that he was then charged with Driving Under Suspension, as his license was suspended in South Carolina, his home state, for not having insurance. You can see Powell’s video regarding his arrest below.

In an interview with Powell, he also claims that the entire law enforcement community has remained silent regarding the “explosions” in the area.

Thus, while the initial question was centered around the nature of the booming noise, it appears that a much bigger question has arisen. That is, why are the authorities and the media apparently ignoring these “explosions?” Even more so, why are they covering it up? Why such systemic silence?

Though some may be tempted to legitimize the “no comment” position maintained by the media and the government, it is almost impossible to believe that these agencies and outlets have no interest in what is obviously a big deal to many of the people who have personally heard the “explosions.”

In fact, the longer this whole thing continues, the more it seems that a cover up is very much in the works.

Particularly interesting are the photos posted by Anthony Gucciardi regarding what many of his readers are claiming to be military vehicles heading for the center of the “explosions.” Gucciardi writes:
Eyewitnesses on the ground near the media-blacked-out elevated radiation zone near the border of Indiana and Michigan, . . . . . are now sending in a large number of photos and videos documenting massive explosions accompanied by unmarked helicopters, A-10 Thunderbolts, and military personnel. These reports come after a Department of Homeland Security hazmat fleet was sent out to the location after ‘years’ of inactivity.
Of course, it should be noted that there are military bases located nearby to at least some of the areas that have experienced these “explosions.” This should be taken into consideration when one mentions troop or military vehicle movements. In addition, it should be mentioned that the claims regarding the DHS hazmat fleet are somewhat suspect and have yet, to my knowledge at least, been proven or corroborated.

Nevertheless, in the midst of this mystery, one thing is for certain – something is happening in Michigan. The only question is what it is and why it is being covered up. At the very least, why the silence?

As Bob Powell concluded:
If you’re looking for information in the local media, good luck. Because they’re not saying a word.

It's a Test of the False Flag that is to happen soon. It might be a Fake Alien invasion or a fake return of Jesus.

H.A.A.R.P. attack ....maybe

It's too big a thing to cover up, unless local law enforcement was not involved. You would have had some whistleblowers by now. Family and friends of Local responders would have been fleeing if the radiation was that bad as well.

So, as time goes on what peaked my interest in the beginning is waning.

If it were true, It would not have been this isolated without a mass of people disappearing locally. Which I highly doubt because facebook friends would have a frenzy of disappearing family.

whatdoesitmean dot com A shocking Federal Security Service (FSB) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that last week an “intense” battle erupted in the US State of Michigan between military forces loyal to the Obama regime and American rebels that killed at least 380 men, women and children who had gathered to oppose their nations slide towards a totalitarian dictatorship.

According to this report, nearly 500 people opposed to the Obama regime had assembled for a “clandestine” meeting in the Michigan country of Alpena in an effort to form a 50-State alliance of local law enforcement and political officers seeking to “turn the tide” of their nations path towards dictatorship even, should it be necessary, by armed force.

The FSB states in this report that hostilities erupted when the American rebel forces gathered at this meeting indentified “several” undercover FBI informants who were seeking to “escalate tensions” and arrested them whereupon, “within minutes,” a contingent of “heavily armed” Obama regime federal police forces attempted to, in turn, arrest these rebel leaders.

After a “prolonged skirmish” between these rebel forces and Obama regime federal police, this report continues, the US Military launched a series of airstrikes, the largest being a 2,000 lb laser guided bomb that hit in the middle of those gathered at this meeting killing over three quarters of them instantly.

To how powerful this blast was we can read as reported by a local Michigan reporter named Bob Powell who wrote: “At 10 a.m. on Wednesday, 6/6/2012, a mysterious explosion shook homes over hundreds of square miles in Northeastern Michigan. The ground shaking explosion was heard from Presque Isle to Lincoln, and out west as far as Hillman.”

Important to note is that this reporter was swiftly detained and arrested by Obama forces when he attempted to gather more information.

Over the next nearly 48-hours since the initial bomb drop upon the rebels, this report continues, Obama regime military forces “numbering in the high-hundreds” descended upon Michigan [photo 2nd left] utilizing nearly 85 combat transport helicopters and A-10 Thunderbolt air-to-ground missile equipped fighter aircraft.

Confirming the chaos of this battle we can, also, read as confirmed by the Natural Society News Service which, in part, says:

“Eyewitnesses on the ground near the media-blacked-out elevated radiation zone near the border of Indiana and Michigan, where radiation levels hundreds of times higher than normal were quickly removed from public viewing by the EPA, are now sending in a large number of photos and videos documenting massive explosions accompanied by unmarked helicopters, A-10 Thunderbolts, and military personnel.

Those on the ground report that the explosions are ‘loud and deep’, sounding like fireworks with a kick. The explosions are oftentimes followed up with a squadron of helicopters or other aircraft, oftentimes black and unmarked. One Michigan resident reports the following, and is then backed by dozens of organic comments which confirm the findings:

“EXPLOSIONS EVERYWHERE! Also, Large helicopter heading away from Local Air Force base flying toward scene of explosions! These explosions are seriously consistent, loud booms for the last hour or more.”

Russian nuclear experts contributing to this FSB report state that the elevated radiation levels associated with this attack by the Obama regime upon these rebel forces state that they were caused by the bombs used because they contain depleted uranium, and that there is the “strong likelihood” various other rebel areas of the States of Michigan and Indian may have been targeted too.

This FSB report further states that the “massive retaliation” against these rebels by the Obama regime was due to their having military grade weapons in which to defend themselves and their families.

It was covered in the local news. The given evidence that trees (at one man's home, not numerous) came down originated there[FOX Toledo Ohio].

If you have dump wells from the gas drilling up in your part of the woods like we do in Oklahoma. They are pumping so much into these wells we get the same explosions here. It is the only way to explane it, just like a massive jolt. They call them earthquakes but it is different as you can see. Aa long as they keep pumping,the earth will keep jolting. Enjoy the ride.

2 Trees in Oshtemo Michigan had there tops snapped off too. It may be numerous.

The report by Sorcha Faal is definite DISINFO - If 380 people were killed there would be a flood of reports all over the net- there are ZERO!
Sorcha Faal is a DISINFO AGENT and part of the new Propaganda campaign set forth by DHS to try to ignite the American people into civil unrest and eventually Martial Law. Don't get caught up in her lies she is an AGENT!

My god.... will nobody bother to check this...I LOVE YOUR SITE... but please...a little journalistic integrity. The two sites that supposedly had independent readings were the same guy using a serial port splitter and sending the faulty readings to both Black cat networks and radiation I can nit speak about all the other crazy stuff. I am a private member of and I was on line that night and talked to the owner of the monitor station, and also the owner of the other members. No oither monitors in the area backed up his readings.. remember...people keep saying it was two different sites getting high readings. It was was one site, using a serial port splitter and broadcasting to two it SEEMED like a validation. This is important to me because it really screws with the credibility of the There absolutely could be other things happening... but the high readings from the two sites was one guy with a glitch... I have three monitors in Kauai... it happens. Sometimes right before a geiger runs out of batteries...or during a blackout, brown out or spike. If people could take the "high readings from two sites" part of the story... and focus on the explosions and even the EPA readings...right on... you can email me personally and ask me about this. I am having people call me a shill because I am posting all over how sick I am of this BS,... I have been on a community radio show for 15 years... that would be pretty deep cover.... check the simplecar I drive or home I live in... or perhaps listen to the shit I give the government and nuclear industry for 15+ years...very deep cover indeed. Seriously... talk to me.
Kauai station on ( I have since pulled down my geigers because I am sick of sheeple reposting so much fear crap. Is there some dark stuff going down...YES! Obviously... but this is not it. This is un researched sensationalized reposting at it's finest... the kind that kills citizen activists, and citizen scientists... let's stop it.

You don't have to post this one... but I wanted to say I love you guys and reference you often on my radio show.... Be awesome!

The key information is tree tops blown off. If true, then this has to be an air burst, either from an air or ground platform. Post some pics of the trees so we can check.

Thanks Anonymous for the sensible information,
I have read this elsewhere as well. Your right people need to try to keep things on an even keel because their real enemies love the disinformation and confusion, it's what enables them to hide the truth in plain sight.

there is no place to buy radiation monitoring equipment on the west coast of Canada. It's like there is a gag on anyone figuring out whether or not Fukushima is killing us slowly. Ordering online just seems like a way of drawing unwanted attention . I'm sure one day soon measuring radiation levels will become a restricted activity......all in the name of national security I'm sure.

We should send out our 'drones' to gather intelligence in and around the area in question. Certainly we have need of them. If there are no answers to our questions, forthcoming then I see no other way as the militerized law enforcement and government agencies are working to conceal intel on the event, we must act on our own sovereignty to understand & control our environment and what goes on in it.

Don't need to silence a whole lot of people, just the ones in charge... thats how conspiracies work! The ones in charge can block the ones who wish to find out more.

Rumors of draining the Great Lakes through the Tennessee Valley into the Gulf. Trying to cause a massive earthquake. They will keep this thing rolling and with the technology available , they have a lot of tricks up their sleeves. We should fight for and demand this technology above all else to clean up this planet to better mankind instead of killing everything with it.
