Numerous Reports of Mysterious Booms and Strange Lights Over South Carolina

Several months ago I wrote an article entitled “Investigation Continues Into Source of Strange Michigan Area ‘Explosions’ and Radiation Spikes,” where I reported on the mysterious sounds and vibrations felt by countless individuals all over the state of Michigan. In this case, the corporate media, law enforcement, and the military typically tried to downplay the anomalies, even to the point of arresting activist journalists for appearing at the local military base with questions as to the nature of the disturbances.

In Michigan, residents all across the state and into Indiana, reported hearing loud explosions which actually rocked the ground hard enough to shake their houses. Bob Powell of The Truth Is Viral, who lives in the area, and is himself a military veteran, described the “explosions” as being similar to the firing of artillery both in sound and impact.

Recently, however, almost exactly the same kind of incident has occurred in South Carolina, spanning the entire Pee Dee region and all the way into North Carolina. On the evening of November 5, around 7:30-7:45 p.m., various law enforcement and local news agencies were contacted by individuals living in the Pee Dee region of South Carolina in reference to a loud “boom” that was large enough to shake their houses.

The reports were numerous around Pamplico, Johnsonville, Marion, Hemingway, Aynor, Nichols, Hannah, and Mullins. However, as stated earlier, reports also came from as far away as Evergreen, North Carolina.

Marion County dispatchers alone received more than 100 calls in ten minutes related to the “booms.”

The US Geological Society has publicly stated that there was no seismic activity in the region on these dates and emergency dispatchers confirmed that there had been no plane crash.

Very soon after the event, Johnsonville Police Chief Ron Douglas, claimed the “booms” were “from a handful of military aircraft” that had broken the speed of sound.

However, this explanation, which was rapidly adopted by the local media, does not hold water. For one thing, most of the individuals I have spoken to (as well as myself) have heard jets break the sound barrier before and both the sound and the impact of the mysterious “booms” were much different than that of jets breaking the sound barrier.

Secondly, if the jets were the cause of the sound and of the heavy vibrational impact that shook so many houses, the jets themselves would have had to be flying very low. But, if the jets were flying low enough for this type of effect to be achieved, witnesses would have also been able to hear the jets.

This writer can personally attest to the intensity of the “booms” as I, myself, was in the area at the time of the incident. The sound, much like what Bob Powell described sounded much more like artillery than any other comparable sound. There was no lead up to the shaking, it was simply as if one was experiencing the vibrations of an explosion.

The impact was so strong that one way to describe hearing and feeling the impact from inside the house, it would be if one could imagine a full grown adult climbing on top of the back of a couch or recliner and leaping off, landing full force on the living room floor. Much like this scenario, the impact was sudden and short-lived.

The sound, however, was extremely similar to the firing of artillery, much as Powell described it in Michigan.

The above incident occurred, as mentioned earlier, on November 5. However, one week prior, a similar, albeit weaker, explosion was heard in the same locations. Reports were made to this writer from both Marion and Mullins in terms of the noticeable impacts and sounds of this separate explosion. Like the first, the sound was similar to artillery, the impact was also distinct but sudden and brief.

To my knowledge, there have been no mainstream local reports of the earlier “explosion.” Also as in the second incident, I can personally attest to the nature of the first.

Of course, the “explosions” themselves are mysterious and intriguing enough. However, when one takes into consideration some accompanying reports of other strange occurrences, the incident takes on a much more shadowy feature.

Just after the second incident, a reporter from the Weekly Observer in Hemingway stated that he saw several aircraft in the sky. He stated, “I saw six jet aircraft with more lightning behind them than normal. This would lead me to believe they were engaging their afterburners and thus the super-sonic speeds and sonic-boom that followed.”

At first, the reporters’ statement seems to corroborate the idea of the “explosions” being caused by sonic booms. However, as I stated earlier, if the jets that were making this sound were flying this close to the ground as to be counted and the action of their afterburners clearly seen, then many other individuals would have also heard the jets themselves. Furthermore, the accompanying noises themselves simply did not sound anything like a sonic boom. So, one must wonder exactly what the alleged aircraft were doing in the area.

In addition, there had been military exercises conveniently scheduled a few days before the second explosion and one day before the first. As reported by WBTW, “There was an Air Force training exercise scheduled for the Pee Dee region on Halloween morning, but nothing was announced for Monday.”

Others reported seeing what they believe to be helicopters. Joe Johnson of Bridge Neck stated, “ I saw the lights they looked like helicopters. Then there was a loud roar.”

Again, Johnson’s description of strange lights is also a common report coming from sources who felt the explosions as well as those who did not.

Many of those who felt the “explosions” reported seeing “bright lights” just beforehand. Others, were reporting “strange lightning” in the skies in the days leading up to the explosions.

With reports of this nature growing in scope from Michigan to South Carolina and, indeed, all over the country, there is clearly something happening. The question, of course, is what?

As Bob Powell stated in regards to Michigan’s mysterious incident, “If you’re looking for information in the local media, good luck. Because they’re not saying a word.”

Sonic boom can be very strong and rattle your windows even when the planes are high in the sky - I remember it vividly from the 50s before airliners were forced to slow down because of the unsettling effects.

Hmmm, wonder if this could have anything to do with the detection off HAARP that was reported at the time of hurricane Sandie's trip north to New England and the Del-Mar region?

I lived beside a coal mine called Evergreen.Their blasting could be heard and felt for miles.The vibrations could rattle windows,shake the house,jar knick-knacks off the shelf.Never saw any lights though.

Theposter above who said, HAARP is probably right on! Also, looks like the northern lights. Where has the n. pole migrated to??????? The sooner we rid ourselves of the greedy banksters, the closer we come to self-preservation of own species not demons and their hybrids. Rapture them the fuck off this planet, please GOD!!!!

Everybody on this planet is living in "interesting times".... unfortunately.

Commercial airliners of the 50s weren't capable of breaking the sound barrier. Even todays airliners fall well short of it.

The Air Force is probably testing bunker buster bombs to train pilots for a raid on Iran. WWIII here we come!

Ben Fulford has reported that similar sonic disturbances were the good guys taking out DUMBs (Deep Underground Military Bases) with atomic detonations. Any military bases in the area???

This is Scalar Weapons. They cause these booms, earthquakes, and obliteration of matter. Someone is trying to shake up the States. The Soviets had been using them on us for decades. HAARP is old news.

SC Air National Guard doing exercises in select counties around the state; been going on for a week. The F-16's are based out of McIntyre, just east of Columbia but west of Shaw AFB. Not Shaw F-16's, SC Guard 16's. They were actually shadowing (if you want to call it that) a Cessna 172 from the Anderson Civil Air Patrol. You can do a search on local tv website

I wonder if this is anything to do with underground bases? Some say there are 132 underground bases in the US...could all the noise and rattling be more work underground? If the boring is being done by a Nuclear boring rig, this may be where the radiation is coming from.

Are they priming HAARP in preparation for a new earthquake? There is a solar eclipse on November 14.

Total solar eclipse in Australia, Nov. 14

Earthquakes are triggered during certain planetary and stellar alignments

The Secret Science of Nuclear Weapons

[quote]In the discussion of earthquakes in the Lost Age it was stated that earthquakes are caused by direct matter transfer between different celestial bodies, causing a geological disturbance at each end. And importantly, that the whole process is highly deterministic and targeted, which allows one to be able to predict to extreme accuracy high magnitude earthquakes several years in advance at various points upon the earth. Now indeed, upon the very issue of earthquake prediction, success is achieved in forecasting by discovering those points upon the earth (or just under the surface) as will actively become focal points for the emergence or withdrawal of matter when the major celestial bodies operating in conjunction with the earth, arrange themselves in the necessary propitious configurations. But this indeed is also exactly the knowledge required to be able to actively generate a nuclear explosion, or indeed launch a nuclear attack upon an enemy. One must synchronise both the delivery of a nuclear weapon to a set target location, and its activation, with the precise positions of the celestial bodies employed in the attack (usually the sun).[/quote]

Sonic Booms, Earthquakes and HAARP

[quote]Not only can you hear a sonic boom, but you can see it!

“…hey we just had another incident of unexplained explosion like booms it happened a day or two before the quake in Chile; it was so loud it awakened people for miles for several counties around some said it might have been a sonic boom but military instillation nearby said no flights in or out at that time. No earthquakes even though it registered on the Virginia Techs seismograph as a very strong acoustic wave.”

HAARP? EISCAT? SURA? A precursor pulse to quake activity? Is someone or something energizing the ionosphere causing earthquakes and sounds?

It’s not the first time people have heard odd sounds and lights in Virginia with little explanation.[/quote]

Amen to that.

I live the area about 1 hour from FT. Bragg and some of the " testing " ranges are fairly close to us . I and others here are very familiar with these ground trembling booms , Of course nobody in are area knows where they come from or what they are for sure . It's thought to be military artillery testing but the odd thing is , This all started only a few years ago and starts this time of year every year from 7 pm to 9:30 pm .

With the sonic boom that I experienced, I was on the main level of my house and the sound was exactly as though someone had slammed a door upstairs closed with massive, angry force. The vibration was similar to that, though somewhat stronger. I was near a large, open window and there was no sound of the jet coming or going.

The reality is that if the jet is low enough to hear, the force of the "boom" will break windows. That is the main reason that jets are not allowed to practice going "sonic" near populated areas - my understanding is that it's because weather conditions can play heavily into how far the damaging force can travel and it's difficult to predict (it was a picture-perfect, clear, still spring day in my experience, and the exercise was far enough away and at an altitude that should have been "safe").

At least one military pilot has commented that using a low-level sonic maneuver would have been a really effective way to stop the assault on the Benghazi compound, and that it isn't even uncommon for them to use such a technique. It breaks every piece of glass for a good diameter, and scares the crowd enough to make them disperse. (Adds to the "mystery" in that debacle, doesn't it??)

I was on active duty Army for a Field Artillery in the late 80's, does anyone have a recording of the sound ? " arty " 155's in particular have a unique sound...could be identified.

Lamargo Petersen said...

Mystery?? Really?? Yes HAARP is capable of all kinds, including these tricks. There is another thought, has there been "fracking" in that area? Gas explosions underground possible.

Last year I think it was, I heard something and went outside to check it out and heard around maybe 5-6 loud booms. I have never heard a sonic boom in person only on tv, though I can not say what I heard was a plane as these seemed like more of the thud of a large explosion rather than the crack of a sonic boom.

I have no idea what they were as they occurred around 6pm on a Sunday evening so construction blasting (as there was a bypass being built a few miles away)I would think would be out and there are no military airfields I would consider close.

After reading this article what I had just put off as most likely sonic booms, I really reconsider that now as what is being described sounds like what I heard.

I live in Southern IN so if what I was hearing was related to what those in SC or Illinois heard I would be rather surprised for that sound to carry this far. I would say more likely whatever I was hearing was a different thing and not related...

I remember when this happened, and I've seen and heard a jet break sound barrier they would do it dog fighting with each other when I was a child, But this was completely different. I thought we were experiencing a small earth quake when it happened, The way everything was shaking. IMO they either found the old nuke off tybee island or set off an old Uranium bomb in the atmosphere to try and poison people..
