Anyone else hearing odd thunder sounds that almost feel like small tremors in Shamong area? Been going on for last 1.5 hours. Sounds like a bombing range. Very odd…

I did not mention "Earthquake" but at the time I was unsure. Later I realized it. Check out the text under the photo of my GPS. This is 10/20/2012.

On Friday, I was at a property adjoining the ranges at Dix and the sounds of the explosions were the loudest I have ever heard. There was also a lot of small arms firing and lesser booms which I suppose were the mortars. When I got home (about 5 miles from the ranges) the artillary practice continued until 11:45 at night. Along with the practice were several aircraft flying at very low altitude. Dix-McGuire-Lakehurst does publish a monthly schedule of daily anticipated noise levels. I never get tired of the noise which many people call the "sound of freedom".

FWIW, NJGIN has a dataset of earthquake epicenters


I included these on both my 2020 and 2023 topo's but you have to zoom all the way in to see them. For example

Yeah ordinarily I would automatically assume joint base. But it was at like 10pm on a day it rained 3-4inches with winds blowing 20mph. Given that I assumed no way it was the base. Actually thought it was maybe drops in air pressure since temp went down fast. Great info, thanks.
