First, Strange Sounds, now Strange BOOMS

Starting in March of 2011, strange rushing and trumpet-like sounds began to be heard worldwide. Now, over many parts of the central United States, unexplained loud explosions are being heard. But what might of all of this mean? This week on Dreamland, Linda Moulton Howe reports on the explosions, offering interviews with direct witnesses.

Linda's website is Earthfiles.com. Visit Earthfiles.com every day to keep up with stories other science websites will NOT tell you!

Linda's recent reports on the strange sounds are available in the Unknowncountry.com subscriber section Dreamland archive.

Next week on Dreamland, the legendary Rand Flem-Ath, who first brought the Charles Hapgood's idea of crustal shift to worldwide attention, discusses whether or not such shifts happen, and what they might have involved in the past. Rand has been on Dreamland and provided special interviews for our subscribers many times over the years.

Strange Sounds and the Pole Shift


For our subscribers, Whitley Strieber and Ralph Steiner go deeper, looking into the possible CAUSES of the strange sounds, booming noises and other phenomena we are seeing right now. Do they mean that an unknown form of instability might be emerging in our planet's crust? Could the stories of possible shifting of the physical surface of the earth in the past be true? If so, is there any way for us to tell whether or not what we are hearing now is related, and if not, then what ELSE might be happening?

Thanks for the link to download Dreamland, also looking forward to listening to your Special interview with Ralph Steiner when the link goes up.

It is great having Linda back on Dreamland, she was really missed.

Back on New Year's Eve, an hour or so after midnight, I heard one very loud boom. Due to the drought conditions here in Texas, I thought it was odd, since I had heard nothing else that evening that sounded like fireworks going off.

Since then I have heard loud booms off and on while I am at home. These booms seem to happen at different times of the day, and they sound exactly like my front door being slammed with a lot of force. (One night I was in the shower when I heard this sound, and was half afraid that someone had broken into my house!) I was beginning to think that this was all in my head, so I didn't mention it to anyone. A few days ago my boyfriend happened to be here alone around 4:00 in the afternoon (If I remember correctly, it was Thursday March 15th), when he heard a boom that not only frightened him, but set my dog to barking. When he told me about it, I told him that I had been hearing it off and on for a couple of months, and that to me it sounded like the front door was being slammed so hard that it shook the house. He said that's what he thought too, and that he even went all over the house checking the doors to see if a draft had caused a door to slam, but he found no evidence that anything had happened with any of the doors.

I live in Central Texas near Austin in the Cedar Park/Leander area. There is a quarry a few miles from here, but I feel pretty sure that they are not blasting during some of the hours that I have heard the door-slamming sound. I live very near the Balcones Escarpment, and the area around here is primarily limestone, with much of the sub-surface dotted by caves. InnerSpace Caverns is about 12 miles from here. In addition, this area has been inhabited by people for thousands of years, and there are even some ancient burial mounds very close to where I live (within about a mile). Ft. Hood is about 50 miles north of here.

Just for the record, I am very sensitive, and I do not think that the door-slamming is of spiritual, or ghostly in nature---when I 'tune in' I do not pick up on anything or anyone as being the cause.

Also of note is that although we are far from being out of the drought, we are getting rain, and also had one of loudest, foundation- shaking storms the other night that I have ever experienced. We get our share of wicked weather down here, but the thunder I heard on Tuesday night was the kind that rattled the windows, the walls, and the dishes in the kitchen cabinets---from midnight until about 7:30 in the morning.

It seems like this has been going on for a long time all around the world and here in the US. Over the past 10-years, I remember hearing similar unexplained single-booms in Idaho and WA states where I lived, and thought there would be some mention of it in the following day's paper... but not a mention, even though all the neighbors heard it and came outdoors to look around too. I shrugged it off when in ID and don't remember the specific times or dates, as the Mountain Home AF Base is pretty nearby.

And just the other day I heard on the news that unexplained booms were heard on So. Vancouver Island, BC too (across the Juan de Fuca straight, and very near Seattle) where there have been quite a few cluster-quakes (100s of tiny low-level quakes in a row). This area is noted for being very active right now and on the Cascadia Fault Zone just off the shore line, along with the entire WA and OR coast line. YIKES!

I wonder of there is any link to solar sun-spot, flare or EMP activity? Google "James Horak, EMVs" on YouTube for amazing Sun vehicles (crafts) that are caught on tape from the NASA SOHO cameras lately. Holy COW!

Below is a site with such similar BOOM notations, current and over the past several years... and I noticed that in the case of ID and WA, that EQ faults are on the sites noted. Has this been going on all along and purposely kept out of the News (for whatever reason?) until NOW when "scare-the-people-news" seems to be the intention? Hmmmm!?

I really doubt that these sounds are new or have anything to do with 2012. I have a book entitled "The Unexplained" by William R. Corliss, 1976, and there is a chapter about these sounds that have been around for centuries. They are called various things such as Barisal Guns, Mistpouffers, Waterguns, and Seneca Guns. I guess the Native Americans attributed the sounds to the great spirit continuing his work on the natural world. I don't think they are biblical in any sense such as the trumpets of heaven but the human mind when it is confronted with something strange seems to always drift to the supernatural or paranormal. Now these sounds seem to be booms not metalic sounding like the phenomena in Clintonville, Wisconsin. Regardless of the causes it is a fascinating subject and thanks to Linda Moulton Howe and Whitley for their thoughtful discussion!!!

I think that the sudden interest in the strange sounds that erupted on the internet at the beginning of 2012 is not related to the sounds themselves, which had started being reported the previous March. And we have records of unknown explosions going back to 2001 just on this website. I have Corliss's book and, as you say, he documents such sounds going back centuries. When I was a boy in Texas, we would hear unexplained thunderous roars coming from the sky from time to time. They were darned scary, especially at night. Still, though, the sudden rise in the number of reports does worry me. In 2010, there were virtually no reports of strange sounds on the internet, or very, very few. But, beginning a year ago, the number has risen dramatically.

To add to my comment above if these sounds have been heard for centuries maybe this is where the "trumpets of heaven" notion came from. The ancient mind coping with something they couldn't explain!!! But the increase in these sounds all over the world is alarming and I can't imagine what it means except our planet is adjusting or reacting to something real or like you suggested Whitley that it is some sort of drilling, burrowing being done underground by the visitors or our government. And I agree that the alien situation has been part of our world from the beginning.

Growing pains...

Thank you all for being so rational in discussing this topic.

The roaring and trumpets sounds have been heard here, in Western WA., for quite awhile and have been, mostly, chalked up to aircraft coming from one of the many Military bases nearby; however, that argument is now being seriously doubted. The BOOM and explosion type sounds have not, to my knowledge, been heard... yet.

I agree that these strange aural phenomenon have been recorded throughout recorded history and have been dismissed as mythological fairy tails.

My question is : why are these phenomenon increasing now?

Just like simple crop circles have been recorded for centuries and have progressed in sophistication and increased number up to the present, could these noises, booms, roars, bells, gongs, etc. be akin to the same kind of progressing message of some sort?

Does anyone know if the same sounds are being heard in Southern England?
At any rate, thanks to Whitley for airing Linda M Howe and her excellent reporting.

In April of 2010, my wife and I were staying at Unity Village, Missouri. One night we were walking in the woods. Everything was peaceful. We saw deer and other forest animals. Then suddenly, a roar, that can only be described as a combination of a locomotive and a jet engine, began a frightening and blasting sound. The experience more than ruined our peaceful evening walk in the woods, the sound carried with it a sense of something intensely illogical and abnormal.

When we returned to our room, on the Unity Village grounds, I called the front desk to ask about this sound. My brain wanted to believe that this was a regular occurrence, probably caused by some hidden railroad yards or Air Force base. However, the person at the front desk said she had heard nothing, and hadn't the slightest idea about what we had heard.

I didn't buy it. The sound was like that of a giant dragon readying to destroy some unsuspecting hamlet. There was no way she didn't hear the sound, as well as other people staying at the village.

Cosmic Librarian termed the sounds, booms--'growing pains'....I love that!

I don't see a mention of anything in Missouri or Wisconsin, but who knows.
