My husband and I heard a loud boom and the house shook, we thought the wind had blown down a tree. But could not find any down around us. It was somewhere around 9am. Even our cat was acting strange.

The same noise was heard in the east end off Nine Mile Road. It sounded like it came from the Chickahominy Swamp area in the wetlands. Kind of scary to think something could have wandered into the swamp and exploded. They should take some samples. I have lived on a military base and it could have been ordinance, but how did it get here?

I am in Western Goochland and heard that boom noise this morning. I thought a tree fell and I just couldn't find it!

The reporter on this story tonight incorrectly stated that the cause of the "Northside Booms" in 2004 was teenagers throwing explosives in the sewers. That was a suspected cause which was found out to be untrue. They learned that the booms were caused by seismic activity.

Living in midlothian,I too heard a loud "boom" noise.Now I'm thinking, could the noise heard in western chesterfield county be associated to that massive EARTH QUAKE in South America. As stange as it may sound, I believe it was. The timing is surely relevant. The noise I heard was like muffled thunder, off in the distance but loud at the same time!
Coming from deep under ground maybe??? Mother nature works in mysterious ways sometimes.There was only the noise, no shaking.
