At approximately 4:15 pm AZ time, my wife and I were interrupted in conversation by an enormous thundering sound. I walked outside and looked to the sky for what I though would surely be a low flying, large aircraft. Our local air traffic consists of small commuter planes, helicopters and very rarely, private jets - Otherwise, we frequently only see full sized military craft and commercial airliners at 20,000+ altitude. This sound was very deep and not exactly like a series of jet engines. There is a detectable "whine" accompanying most aircraft passing over, even from high up. This was an intense rumble that was more like close thunder that lasted continuously for 3 or 4 minutes. Looking to the sky, hearing this sound was really intense. It sounded more natural because of its intensity, than artificial. I have never been in an Earthquake but this sound is what I imagine an earthquake to sound like and fits the descriptions of how I've heard them described. We did not feel the ground shake or move at all. After scouring the skies above and looking around the streets, this rumble was clearly not a visible aircraft and it was not a biker gang rolling through town. As silly as that may sound, LHC is home to huge groups of motorcycle enthusiasts that regularly ride in large packs. A sound I am very familiar with. This unique rumble yesterday was unlike anything I've ever heard. I've Googled it and have not seen any other posting form anyone in the area. That's really too bad. I know hundreds of other people must have been in tune to it.

There have been a series of them all day long. I live on the north side of town. Anyone else noticing this?0 points greeney2 wrote 479 Days Ago (neutral)0You made an interesting comment about earthquake sound. I've been in the big Los Angeles ones, and the Northridge quake we were only 1/4 mile from the epiceter. For several months people very close to the center of the epicenter, we would hear an enormous rumble coming out of the ground, which was aftershocks. The odd part was you would think the sound would occur after or during the ground shaking, but this would always occurs seconds prior to the house shaking. WE finally go used to the sounds, which we would seriously jump up and head for the door everytime. It was almost a deafening rumble, and preceeded the house shaking by about 3-4 seconds. The epicenter of the Northridge quake was about 6-7 miles deep, and the rumble from that was so loud, you could not hear yearself. Deep ground noise can be very loud and rumbling. As far as a aircraft emitting a rumbling noise, some helocopter blades really emit a thunderous whapping noice, and also old reciprocating engine aircraft(not jets), also emit a very thunderous rumbling engine noise.0 points Eldensword wrote 495 Days Ago (neutral)0DAY 3! - Jets everywhere in the skies, thunderous booms and rumbling - NOT sonic booms - NOT weather conditions - And Red Flag ended on the 3rd. Pretty trippy sounding rumble and noticeable ground rattle.0 points
