    Copy and paste. I believe I heard a boom from one some years ago.

    What time did Ronda get hit in the second round? That might explain it!. Also factor in the time for the sound to travel.

    Just watched the highlights. Some tremors and then the earthquake.

    First Earthquake I've been witness to, our initial thought was thunder. It was an audible, low rumbling noise and rattled the windows


    Edit. This was about 20 some years ago. No boom but a long low rumble.

    Huh... That epicenter is within 1/2 mile of a property we've hunted for decades on slate mine road, and within 4 or 5 miles of 2 more.

    So what was the boom?

    That could explain both.
    My guess is this is the accurate hypothesis.

    Earthquakes can cause a set of different phenomena that's unusual. One of them is the boom you guys heard today and the other are flashes of light that look like lightning. You'll notice the blue flashes in this first video.

    Holy Smokes Shaggy that one lasted awhile. LOL.

    Visited Mexico City a couple of years ago and the first night they had one in the neighboring state. Everyone but me slept thru it. I was ready to head back to the US. LOL.
