Unexplained Booms in Alhambra, California

Unexplained Booms in Alhambra, California

March 16, 2016 Alhambra, California - Since February 2016, there have been several very loud booms — “like half a stick of dynamite" exploding close by. People call authorities, police investigate, USGS checks seismic records and there are no tremors, military say there are no planes breaking sound barriers. No answers. Similar unexplained and repeating booms have been reported on the East Coast since January 2016.

Fox News reported on March 9, 2016:

Emanuel Pascual heard the strange sounds on five separate occasions in February and even tweeted about it. "When the explosions happen you look outside and there is nothing... You don't see anything that's going on... You don't hear no car alarms going off which is kind of strange." said Pascual.

Alex Arevalos heard them too. A sound so loud it shook his house.... He first thought it was a train that runs nearby. "usually the train is kind of a continuous... This was more of like a sudden jolt."

Beginning in mid-February, Alhambra police started getting calls about the mystery booms, the last time they were heard was February 22nd. And it's not just residents hearing the strange sounds... But firefighters... Police officers... Even city officials.

Christopher Paulson is the Director of Administrative Services for the city. He first heard the booms in mid-February. "We were at an event at the library in their open air patio and I heard it on the open air patio about 8 pm that night and it was a very loud explosion like noise... That's the best way I can think of to describe it at this point." said Paulson.
