Hi,
The last several days I have heard loud booms and at times the house will shake. I've checked the earthquake maps and they haven't shown anything. Outside the booms are quite loud also, especially this evening. I can't find anything online about it, and thought I would post here. Have you heard/felt it? Do you know what it is? Thank you!

Last night in Quail Valley we keep hearing loud booming noises back towards Canyon Lake but never found out what it was.

I heard them too (near Murrietta Rd & Craig Ave).
I didn't pay much attention, as I've often noticed bombing noises from Camp Pendleton's military excercises over the years. But, if it shook the house, perhaps someone is blasting in or near your area. About two yrs ago now, someone used too much nitro (I guess) at a housing project near here, which caused a MIGHTY LOUD blast, & ROCKED the neighborhood ... not to mentiion that it broke the new windows out in the new homes adjacent to the blast... If not blasting for new house foundations, they may be blasting more of our areas' beautiful boulders to smitherines ...):

Then again ... MAYBE someone is blasdting for better leachline absorption, in preperation for the soon-expected flooding in the are ...
... Otherwise, I'm at a loss as to what it is from. Maybe, firemen in your area could tell you, as blasting should require a permit!

I have been hearing these for years and when I first moved here they freaked me out. But over there years Ive learned they are Pendleton training blasts - and sometimes they are so loud and frequent and everyone around me acts like they dont hear them! LOL

That is really weird!! I live on the East Coast and we have had sonic booms as well. Nobody seems to know what it is but one person said it could be space junk which when it hits the earths atmosphere causes an enormous sound due to intense friction. Our region which is Richmond, VA still has no idea what the sounds are for now.

Just a thought....I've noticed more military jets flying over from different directions, They don't seem to be on any type of approach to March. I've also heard sub sonic jet sounds way out of sight, just wondering if we are getting sonic booms from flights we can't see.

Most likely it is from Camp Pendleton, if you go to their official website they will have a section (I forget what they call it) but it pretty much shows you a schedule of sorts of when you might hear loud noises from their training exercises.
As far as an increase in flying activity related to March ARB, there really hasn't been an increase, you might see the C-17's or KC-135's flying at a higher elevation over the general area, that just means they climbed out and are heading to wherever they are going...but overall, not many changes.
I live in Menifee and see all the activity from March and my husband works over there.

I doubt its camp Pendleton. I live about 4 miles from the freeway and it sounded like someone running up and down the stairs, but my friends who live close the freeway heard loud bombs... Its probably the construction on the freeway.

Heard loud noises like sonic booms last night as well as this morning at times the house would vibrate. Called the Fire Dept. and of course they have no idea what it is. ANY IDEA?????

I'm pretty sure they are doing construction on the 15. I live in Quail valley and I've been hearing them at random times all week. We drove to Fontana and in the way we saw that an entire hill was blown out...just gone. I bet it's the blast from that.
Check out "sounds of the apocalypse" on YouTube. Its what made me google it.

On March 14, 2012 I hears the loud booms that seemed to fizzle out. They were loud enough to where I can here them in the house. I know I wasn't imagining it because my dog barked when I heard them... Any ideas as to what this was? I thought maybe the trains collided since there are tracks alongside the ten but no news on anything like that. Maybe they were sonic booms. Hard to tell.

I heard 3 of those loud explosions. Two at about 9:45 and another around 10:00. The first was so loud that I could feel the explosion while I was outside and I live in Northern Moreno Valley. The third one, I was in the house and the windows shook when it happened. I assumed it was at March AFB. When I went onto the hill to look over the valley it was so overcast you couldn't see anything. The Press Enterprise and the news don't seem to have anything pertaining to the noise.

Same from wildomar. Thought I'd check online to see if anyone knew what it was. Looks like we're in the same boat.
