Re: [Geology2] In March, a series of strong rumbling shook the coast which were widely regarded as Seneca Guns

The Aurora Project must have been doing a flight up the coast there at that time. ;-p

Has anyone heard of Seneca Guns before?

September 30, 2011 - CHARLESTON, SC - A boom shook the Lowcountry coast Wednesday morning, estimated at Mount Pleasant in West Ashley.Et again, no one could tell what the caused. Seismographs at the College of Charleston have not shown to seismic activity. The Charleston Air Force Base were no reports of sonic booms created by military aircraft. No commercial vessels n 'responded to a message from the Coast Guard of the United States requiring reporting if it was felt off.The reverb is very likely came from the "Seneca Guns," a phenomenon yet unexplained felt along the coasts around the world. Some experts believe that the booms are caused by gases from the seabed, or landslides underwater along the continental shelf, or the echo of distant thunder, or flashes of electric shocks, or even meteors crashing into the atmosphere.The last explosion hit just before 10 am "It was a good shake, a boom strong enough," said Mark Reamer, who has felt. "The mirrors on the wall shook," said Melinda Issacson, who worked at home on James Island.Doors, windows and shook houses in Mount Pleasant and Sullivan's Island, according to reports from Twitter. A tweeter West Ashley said he sounded like a gust of wind against the house. At the same time, a large tree fell on the side of the road Hut Johns Island and nearby residents reported an explosion. But a tweeter in Charleston said that nothing has been felt there. Small earthquakes and other booms are common in the Lowcountry, where a series of underground faults converge. The last big quake was a jolt of the earthquake 5.8 Richter Scale, Virginia, in August. In March, a series of strong rumbling shook the coast which were widely regarded as Seneca Guns.
