Did You Hear ‘Frightening’ Loud Booms Tuesday Night?

An Altadena resident shared that she heard loud “frightening” boom sounds consistently throughout Tuesday night but the Altadena Sheriff’s Station has no report of anything happening. Did you hear or see anything?

Was your Tuesday night disturbed by the sounds of loud booms? It was for one Altadena resident, who told Patch via email that she heard these mystery sounds all night:

I live in NW Altadena near Lincoln & Loma Alta Dr & on last evening, Tuesday - Dec 4, 2012, I kept hearing 'loud boom' sounds every 10-15 minutes. These sounds continued all night - very frightening - I called the Sheriff's Dept to report it - I never found out what this noise was. Did anyone else hear this and do you know what it was? I know that street lights are being put up on the corner of Altadena Dr & Lincoln.

The watch commander for the Altadena Sheriff’s Station told Patch Wednesday that nothing else was reported about any loud “boom” sounds and there was no explanation for them.

The most notable thing that happened Tuesday night, according to the watch commander’s report of the Altadena crime log, was a call to report a beauty salon fire in town but when fire officials showed up there was no fire to be seen.

Did you hear any loud boom sounds Tuesday or see anything causing a loud sound? Tell us in the comments.

Hey Kristen...If you were referring to my post about "end of the world" it was all in fun. I was really poking at the overnight show that always has a strange idea. We are not at the end of anything .....yet.....well....oh uh....nevermind.

There are loud booms going off in lower Arkansas and have been for a few weeks! I am beginning to wonder if this is some new testing of a new aircraft, like the SR-71 Blackbird. It apparently is not happening in one place but all across the U.S. Any new theories?

It may well be, Mr. Schmidt (see my comments above). Alternatively, it could be the Mayans banging on the gates of the Underworld from the other side. They want the heads of those fools who misread their calendar.

Lord have mercy! For all you folks that are tempted by conspiracy theories, here's an exercise for you. If you can bear to get through the entire article referenced above, can you explain why it's a great steaming pile of bullsomething in in less than 25 words? I can do it in two.
