Mysterious Booms Across The United States, explanations and a list of “Boom Sightings”

January 9th, 2013

Mysterious BoomsTripodder.com has compiled a list of reported booms across the country and we’re asking YOU to help us as the story continues to unfold.

If YOU heard or felt any of these, please leave comments on this link and where you “sighted” the boom as we intend to have a keep a list updated as a resource.

We’ve even included a recording of one of the booms from Indianapolis, Indiana along with a series of videos below.

These booms, which can often be as intense as a loud explosion, seemed to start around Sunday, January 5, 2013 in areas across Indiana and ranged from Arizona to Maryland. Though some reports show these have been going on for the last few weeks or longer.

Guthrie Oklahoma Mayor Chuck Burtcher claims that these booms are nothing new as there have been reports of residents in Guthrie for three months as they continue this week. (see video below)

 

UFO spaceships

While local media outlets have reported on this specific series of booms this week, no major media outlets like Fox, CNN MSBC have reported on the booms and at Tripodder.com we are encouraging them to investigate.

As of Wednesday January 9,  it seems more a whisper of “boom” sightings. However, these unexplained events are now being discussed at an increasing rate on Twitter and Facebook.

Examiner.com points to an explanation of major Earth changes “rattling the planet.” One independent blogger “stacemart” on YouTube.com thinks an oil exploration project. He mentions companies like Strand Energy is to blame for testing properties for minerals.

Another YouTube reporter TheUnitedKnowledge says he predicted all of this in December 2012.

While we are unsure of the degree of expertise and knowledge among some of these reporters giving predictions,  we  sharing them below on Tripodder.com.

As far as we know, the booms have been isolated to the United States. Suggestions have ranged from everything to precursors to Earthquake, aliens, UFO’s, government testing new aircraft.

Tripodder.com has no definitive explanation. However, we will continue to stay on top of the story and we ask for you post your comments and any “boom sightings” you’ve had or heard on this link.

The Cold Stares

Back in 2009 Chris Tapp of The Cold Stares went to a doctor to have some spots looked at on his skin. The doctor removed the spots and sent for testing.

The news came back good and showed no signs of cancer so Chris continued on being a great husband, father, and rock and roll man.

A few months ago while booking tons of gigs all over the midwest as well as working on a full length album with his band The Cold Stares, Chris became concerned with a swollen lymph node under his right arm.

Thereafter, Chris unfortunately tested positive for cancer after more tests.

The doctor’s then went back and retested the spots back in 2009 and they were also positive for cancer.

This is the burden Chis has been given and Chad Harvey along with many tri-state musicians played a benefit show to help Chris STARE down cancer at Mojo’s Boneyard Bar and Grill.

Kelci House of Up Fashion Magazine reports from New York’s Fashion week 2010 on behalf of Tripodder.com to cover Celebrity Fashion Designer Indashio‘s “Red Carpet Collection” Debut with backstage access.

The Indashio “Red Carpet” fashion show took place at Tenjune in the Meatpacking district tonight. After opening the doors, the downstairs of the bar was quickly hoping with guest trying to get warm to signature cocktails by Svedka Vodka, Liquid Lightning Energy Drinks and Blue Coat Gin. The vibe was rocking and the music definitely reflected the mood, funky and hot.

“I drew my inspiration this season from all of the glamorous and beautiful red carpet events that I have attended and I want my audience to experience the glitz and glamour associated with Red Carpet events” Indashio told Tripodder.com.

As guests rolled in, celebs lined up for the paparazzi. The styles off the runway were definitely something to note but when the show started all heads were turned to Indashio’s collection. As the first model danced onto the runway, literally, her ballet style dress started the event off beautifully. Every outfit followed suit, impeccably put together and beautifully worn. Although the show only lasted five minutes, it definitely left a lasting impression.

University of Louisville officials say that it is not even safe to leave campus (see video below).  Police are urging people to stay indoors and off the streets until the threat passes.

It began earlier this morning when over three inches of rain fell in approximately two hours during rush hour. The Rubbertown area in western Louisville was hit with more than 6 inches of rain in three hours. The National Weather Service  reports that some parts of the city were also pelted by marble-sized hail for as long as 20 minutes. Many roads  are being reported  as impassable in cities and towns across Clark County.
