Andie Posted February 7, 2014 Report Share Posted February 7, 2014 This boom phenom is starting to peak everyone's interest as clearly it isn't quake related. Some other phenomenon is occurring, though what is still unknown. No secondary or tertiary waves as in quakes so it remains unknown. Last quake in the area was 1928. http://touch.baltimoresun.com/#section/-1/article/p2p-79193620/ Michael Maykrantz was on duty at a fire house on 74th street in Ocean City when the floor began to shake and the doors started to rattle. At Bart Rader’s house in Ocean Pines, a loud boom “like somebody blew something up” preceded shaking so heavy that it rattled a 50-pound metal sculpture against the wall. Miles away in Annapolis, Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan was meeting in state Sen. James Mathias’ office when he got a text message from his daughter: “What the heck was that?” A series of tremors rattled residents across Ocean City and the lower Delmarva Peninsula around midday Thursday, puzzling geologists and emergency managers. Within a few hours, geologists ruled out an earthquake, and by Thursday evening, signs pointed to supersonic jets flying from the Patuxent Naval Air Station, though station officials could not confirm when the flights would have passed by Ocean City. Some still suspect something more mysterious. Rader said similar rumblings occur once every three or six months, and Thursday’s was the most intense yet. “We’ve never got one like today,” he said.
