Seismologists on the scene checked out spots where residents were reporting feeling shaking when a new shake actually occurred. Tuesday's earthquake was discovered after people reported feeling something, and geologists pored through their data to determine that an earthquake did indeed strike.... so; Tuesday's event was confirmed as an earthquake because it registered on six different seismometer including some as far as central Iowa.
Geophysicist Paul Caruso (USGS Survey scientist) told The Associated Press that loud booming noises have been known to accompany earthquakes. It's possible the mysterious sounds that town officials have been investigating are linked to the quake, he said. Earthquakes can generate seismic energy that moves through rock at thousands of miles per hour, producing a sonic boom when the waves come to the surface.
Clintonville City Administrator Lisa Kuss declared the boom mystery solved at a press conference on 22 Mar 2012 (Thursday). She said USGS representatives described the event as a swarm of several small earthquakes in a very short time. "In other places in the United States, a 1.5 earthquake would not be felt," she said. "But the type of rock Wisconsin has transmits seismic energy very well." City officials investigated and ruled out a number of human-related explanations, such as construction, traffic, military exercises and underground work.
QUESTION: So why didn't all those other "minor" quakes over the years cause by "Booms"? Why are these particular quakes causing booms?
Local residents have reported late-night disturbances since Sunday (March 18th), including shaking ground and loud booms that sound like thunder or fireworks.
Steve Dutch, a geologist at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, said a 1.5 magnitude earthquake produces the energy equivalent of 100 pounds of explosives and can result in loud sounds. but; he term "earthquake", is a term generally used to refer to widespread stress in the earth's crust.
QUESTIONS:Could there be plate or magma movement beneath the eastern half of the United States?
If so could the booms indicate a subductive interaction between a suspected major faultline going down the middle of the United States?
Is the western "half" plate being pushed "under" as the Eastern half (which is now "moving" westward)? Again, if such is the case; then what interior "shifting" of the Earth might be the impetus for such a movement? These "Booms" are new and being heard worldwide ... if it IS a new Shifting of the Earth ... well; "Does something wicked this way come"???

Swarm satellite (ESA) measurements made from January to June 2014 show a dramatic decline in Earth's magnetic field over North and South America with a strengthening of the Earth's magnetic field over the southern Indian Ocean.
James Smith, owner of fossil fuel research and recovery corporation, southeastern United States, who asked for anonymity: “The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (Columbia University) published an article February 5, 2015, and data showed that strikingly regular patterns in seafloor volcano cycle activity relate historically to Earth’s impending magnetic pole flip.
(Linda) - SO, THIS IS REINFORCING THE IDEA THAT HAS BEEN PRESENTED BY SOME GEOPHYSICISTS RECENTLY THAT WE MIGHT BE IN THE CENTURY IN WHICH THE MAGNETIC FIELDS OF THIS PLANET WILL CHANGE — THE NORTH WILL BE IN THE ANTARCTIC AND THE SOUTH WILL BE IN THE ARCTIC.

WHAT THE Geophysicist TOLD HIS Electronics Expert FRIEND
The geophysicist surprised his electronics friend when he said that the booms have been becoming more frequent around the world, not just the U. S. He said there have been reports from the Soviet Union, Europe, Africa, China, Guatemala and that the first report in 1998 was from a deep mine on the Alaska/Yukon border.
At that time, miners reported hearing sounds like rocks or sand falling down a metallic tube. The geophysicist told the electronics engineer, “Since 2011, many geologists have noticed almost a 1000% increase in soil liquefaction.” This might explain the more frequent sinkholes, not only in the United States but around the world.
The geophysicist said he and his colleagues “believe something is going on in the inner core of the Earth. They don't know if it's a magnetic pole change; restructuring of minerals within the soil down to the mantle and core. It's becoming more frequent and so has the intensity. They really have no real idea what's going on. He said they don't know if it's a short term, one-time boom phenomenon, or something very serious.
They don't know if it's a regular occurrence that happens in cycles on the Earth. So far, there is no explanation for the boom phenomenon. ”
The geophysicist also told his electronics friend that the increasing sinkholes might be related to the core, mantle and crust changes because sound frequencies are involved. He emphasized they are aware of pretty steady infrasound that the human ear cannot hear, but dogs and other animals can - which would explain why dogs have been reported running before a boom occurs. So what is the physics when people can hear the loud booms and even be jolted by them at least in a localized area?
The electronics expert said the geophysicist used the analogy of the Earth's crust acting like a large speaker diaphragm, projecting sounds, some of them going through the atmosphere and out through the ionosphere and some returning as audible sound that the human ear can hear.
When I asked the electronics expert why our government does not simply say all this to the American people, he answered from his conversation with the geophysicist: “Panic. Strictly panic. That's all I can tell you. The government and political system is afraid of panic.”
I also asked the electronics expert about the bright white flashes of light associated with the loud boom phenomenon. He said it's like a very large static electric discharge associated with the apparent huge stress emanating from the inner and outer core to the liquid mantle beneath the Earth's crust.
He said he understands there has been a change in the speed with which the mantle is moving so now the mantle is moving faster. The mantle flow increase sets up new vibrations from the magnetic conductivity created.
I asked the electronics expert what the geophysicist says could be the worst case scenario if the booms and light flashes persist - or even grow in frequency and intensity?
He said, “The geophysicist said the worst case would be that there's more cracks that could appear in the main continental plates. So instead of having one huge plate more or less from the East Coast of Japan down through Indonesia and back up to South America and up the coastline through California - what would happen if that big plate bulged in the center and created cracks?
They know they've got something causing these core to mantle to crust vibrations that releases huge, sudden, quick energy in the focused booms. But what it is? And what scale could it affect, they don't know. ” (For more: Click On The Earthquake Symbol at top left of page)

Insider information from a geologist working at a major U.S. military base who contacted her by email.
He told her that as far back as 1998, miners along the Yukon/Alaska border reported unusual sounds coming from inside the earth.
But since 2011, many geologists have noticed an almost 1,000% increase in soil liquefaction.
Something is going on in the core of the earth that may be related to a magnetic pole shift or restructuring of minerals going down to the mantle, the geologist revealed, and this could be what is causing the booming sounds.
A Lopsided growth of TheEarth's Core ...
...could explain why its magnetic field reverses direction every few thousand years. One side of Earth's solid inner core grows slightly while the other half melts.If it happened now, we would be exposed to solar winds capable of knocking out global communications and power grids.
There are signs that the next switch may be under way.Rapid movements of the magnetic field's axis to the East in the last few hundred years may be a precursor to the north and south poles trading places.
Models indicate a possible correlation between these magnetic field shifts and reversals of Earth's magnetic field. (Click Here For Article)
So, What Could Be Moving Way Down Under The Earth's Mantle?
A software model by NASA of the remnants of the Farallon Plate, deep in Earth's mantle. An ancient oceanic plate, which began subducting under the west coast of the North American Plateó then located in modern Utah. (from Wikipedia)
The remains of the Farallon Plate are:
The Juan de Fuca, Explorer and Gorda Plates, subducting under the northern part of the North American Plate;
The Cocos Plate subducting under Central America; and
The Nazca Plate subducting under the South American Plate.
A large fragment of the subducted plate is believed to presently be in the mantle under eastern North America.
Quakes ARE connected
Buoys are indicators of sea floor adjustments that can precede big quakes. So Indonesian subduction (with or without a quake there) can "trigger" a west coast quake across the globe
Here's that L.A.. quake from the 15th, in case you missed it
History We Don't Even Know We Knew ...
747 B.C. - 23 March 647 B.C.
Just How Much "Recent" History have we forgotten ... nor; ever been told?
In China, in the year 721 B.C., the astronomer Y-hang announced to his Emperor Hiuen-tsong that "the order of the sky and the movements of the planets had changed, thus making it impossible to correctly predict the Eclipses. He also mentioned that in the time of Tsin, Venus used to move 40 degrees to the south of the ecliptic and thus eclipse the star Sirius. But in the time of Tsin, Venus changed its course.
All over the world, from the Maya to the Egyptians; in the years after 647 B.C., calendars were adjusted. Between 747 B.C. and 647 B.C.;climactic changes occurred that required the calendars, celestial charts, sundials and water clocks be changed ... where they have remained until today.
[Info from Immanuel Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision]
"A Series of cataclysms during (between) the 8th & 7th centuries BC may have changed the orbit of the Earth & the Moon"
The Earth's "orbital Day" is now 365 days 5 hrs 48' 46"
The Moon's "orbital Day" is now 29 days 12 hrs. 44' 02.7"
BUT; a Lunar week used to be exactly 9 days and an Earth year used to be exactly 360 Days
According to ancient records, the Pole Star shifted from "the Great Bear" to "The Little Bear" (Polaris). At that time, the Length of an Earth year went from 360 days to 365¼ days.
Hindhu sources (Vedas & Avesta) state that a shift of 100 yojanas occurred (roughly 500 - 900 miles). The Vedas also speak of a 360 day year.
The Babylonians record a southward shift in latitude of 02½°... and it was in the 7th century that 5 days were added to the Babylonian Calendar. (very roughly 130 mile shift)
The Bible: Genesis (Flood story), Deuteronomy & Numbers indicate a 360 day year up to a window of time between Exodus and an upheaval recorded in the days of Uzziah...on 23 March 647 B.C.
Greek Sources: Leucippus, Democritus, Seneca, all mention the shift; and:
Plutarch (Volume III of "Morals" asks: "What is the cause of the World's current inclination?"):
Plutarch: "The Pole received a turn of Inclination".
Ovid: "The Earth sank a little lower than her wonted place".
The Jerusalem Talmud mentions the change as well.
Egyptian Water Clocks were adjusted:
Amenhotep III's water clock was found to fit a Winter Solstice Day that was longer by 52'
A decree found at Tanis called upon the Egyptian priests to meet at Canopus to set up a new adjusted calendar to fit the new length of the Seasons; they had to add 5 days.
The poles changed their location
The Latitudes of cities were displaced
The Axis of the Earth's tilt changed its direction
The number of days in a year increased from 360 - 365¼ days
Sundials before the year 687 B.C. no longer worked
"And the World became Cold ..."
1. The Roman historian Procopius described the disaster:
“The sun gave forth its light without brightness like the moon during this whole year.”
2. In 535 A.D., historian / church leader John of Ephesus wrote ("Historiae Ecclesiasicae"):
“There was a sign from the sun, the like of which had never been seen and reported before. The sun became dark and its darkness lasted for 18 months. Each day, it shone for about four hours, and still this light was only a feeble shadow. Everyone declared that the sun would never recover its full light again.”
3. Zacharias of Mytilene wrote:
“The sun began to be darkened by day and the moon by night.”
4.Roman official , "John the Lydian":
“the sun became dim for nearly the whole year.”
5. In 536, in Italy - Senior local civil servant, Cassiodorus Sentaro wrote:
“We marvel to see no shadows of ourselves at noon….We have had a spring without mildness and a summer without heat.”
6. Also in 536 Japan - Great King Senka:
“Yellow gold and ten thousand strings of cash cannot cure hunger. What avails a thousand boxes of pearls to him who is starving of cold?”
