Numerous Reports of Mysterious Booms and Strange Lights Over South Carolina

Several months ago I wrote an article entitled “Investigation Continues Into Source of Strange Michigan Area ‘Explosions’ and Radiation Spikes,” where I reported on the mysterious sounds and vibrations felt by countless individuals all over the state of Michigan. In this case, the corporate media, law enforcement, and the military typically tried to downplay the anomalies, even to the point of arresting activist journalists for appearing at the local military base with questions as to the nature of the disturbances.

In Michigan, residents all across the state and into Indiana, reported hearing loud explosions which actually rocked the ground hard enough to shake their houses. Bob Powell of The Truth Is Viral, who lives in the area, and is himself a military veteran, described the “explosions” as being similar to the firing of artillery both in sound and impact.

Recently, however, almost exactly the same kind of incident has occurred in South Carolina, spanning the entire Pee Dee region and all the way into North Carolina. On the evening of November 5, around 7:30-7:45 p.m., various law enforcement and local news agencies were contacted by individuals living in the Pee Dee region of South Carolina in reference to a loud “boom” that was large enough to shake their houses.

The reports were numerous around Pamplico, Johnsonville, Marion, Hemingway, Aynor, Nichols, Hannah, and Mullins. However, as stated earlier, reports also came from as far away as Evergreen, North Carolina.

Marion County dispatchers alone received more than 100 calls in ten minutes related to the “booms."

The US Geological Society has publicly stated that there was no seismic activity in the region on these dates and emergency dispatchers confirmed that there had been no plane crash.

Very soon after the event, Johnsonville Police Chief Ron Douglas, claimed the “booms” were “from a handful of military aircraft” that had broken the speed of sound.

However, this explanation, which was rapidly adopted by the local media, does not hold water. For one thing, most of the individuals I have spoken to (as well as myself) have heard jets break the sound barrier before and both the sound and the impact of the mysterious “booms” were much different than that of jets breaking the sound barrier.

Secondly, if the jets were the cause of the sound and of the heavy vibrational impact that shook so many houses, the jets themselves would have had to be flying very low. But, if the jets were flying low enough for this type of effect to be achieved, witnesses would have also been able to hear the jets.

This writer can personally attest to the intensity of the “booms” as I, myself, was in the area at the time of the incident. The sound, much like what Bob Powell described sounded much more like artillery than any other comparable sound. There was no lead up to the shaking, it was simply as if one was experiencing the vibrations of an explosion.

The impact was so strong that one way to describe hearing and feeling the impact from inside the house, it would be if one could imagine a full grown adult climbing on top of the back of a couch or recliner and leaping off, landing full force on the living room floor. Much like this scenario, the impact was sudden and short-lived.

The sound, however, was extremely similar to the firing of artillery, much as Powell described it in Michigan.

The above incident occurred, as mentioned earlier, on November 5. However, one week prior, a similar, albeit weaker, explosion was heard in the same locations. Reports were made to this writer from both Marion and Mullins in terms of the noticeable impacts and sounds of this separate explosion. Like the first, the sound was similar to artillery, the impact was also distinct but sudden and brief.

To my knowledge, there have been no mainstream local reports of the earlier “explosion.” Also as in the second incident, I can personally attest to the nature of the first.

Of course, the “explosions” themselves are mysterious and intriguing enough. However, when one takes into consideration some accompanying reports of other strange occurrences, the incident takes on a much more shadowy feature.

Just after the second incident, a reporter from the Weekly Observer in Hemingway stated that he saw several aircraft in the sky. He stated, “I saw six jet aircraft with more lightning behind them than normal. This would lead me to believe they were engaging their afterburners and thus the super-sonic speeds and sonic-boom that followed.”

At first, the reporters’ statement seems to corroborate the idea of the “explosions” being caused by sonic booms. However, as I stated earlier, if the jets that were making this sound were flying this close to the ground as to be counted and the action of their afterburners clearly seen, then many other individuals would have also heard the jets themselves. Furthermore, the accompanying noises themselves simply did not sound anything like a sonic boom. So, one must wonder exactly what the alleged aircraft were doing in the area.

In addition, there had been military exercises conveniently scheduled a few days before the second explosion and one day before the first. As reported by WBTW, “There was an Air Force training exercise scheduled for the Pee Dee region on Halloween morning, but nothing was announced for Monday.”

Others reported seeing what they believe to be helicopters. Joe Johnson of Bridge Neck stated, “ I saw the lights they looked like helicopters. Then there was a loud roar.”

Again, Johnson’s description of strange lights is also a common report coming from sources who felt the explosions as well as those who did not.

Many of those who felt the “explosions” reported seeing “bright lights” just beforehand. Others, were reporting “strange lightning” in the skies in the days leading up to the explosions.

With reports of this nature growing in scope from Michigan to South Carolina and, indeed, all over the country, there is clearly something happening. The question, of course, is what?

As Bob Powell stated in regards to Michigan’s mysterious incident, “If you’re looking for information in the local media, good luck. Because they’re not saying a word.”
