Police in Clintonville, Wisconsin were flooded with dozens of calls from concerned residents last night after the town was again rattled by a series of booms louder than anything reported to date, despite official assurances that previous reports of the noise were caused by a minor earthquake.
“Clintonville police say they received about 65 calls Tuesday night, from people reporting three or four loud booms. Officials say the calls came in from 10:35 until 11:40 p.m,” reports Fox 11
According to authorities, the booms shook the same part of the town that was hit by a series of similar jolts over the last ten days, but last night residents said they were even louder. The booms occurred closer together and one lasted for a full 30 seconds, according to reports. City officials contacted the USGS in an effort to find answers.
“As of now, there is no confirmation by the USGS of any new seismic activity,” reports WBAY
, Clintonville City Administrator Lisa Kuss again blamed earthquakes for the booms, despite the fact that seismic events are extremely rare in Wisconsin.
The booms were first reported on the night of Sunday 18th of March and continued for several nights before apparently abating.
City officials had hoped to bring closure to the mystery after the US Geological Survey reported that the town had suffered a minor 1.5 magnitude earthquake on Tuesday last week. However, residents reacted with skepticism
, noting that the booms occurred before the earthquake and were also felt 80 miles away in a different town
, a fact that contradicts the USGS’ assertion that “the 1.5 magnitude quake would have likely only been felt within a few blocks around its epicenter.”
The fact that the booms are continuing to rattle the town will only increase suspicions that the earthquake explanation was merely a cover story for something else.
Earthquakes in Wisconsin are extremely rare. The largest took place in 1947 immediately south of Milwaukee, but its magnitude was not recorded. The quake shook buildings but was relatively minor and caused no injuries. For the same area of the town of Clintonville to be hit by two separate earthquakes in the space of a week is virtually impossible, unless the cause is man-made.
