What Happened In Chandler?

CBS 5 News has crews working to find out what caused the loud booms reported by dozens of Chandler residents Sunday night.

On this Google map, 40 entries have been made pinpointing locations and times of the loud booms.

From the entries, it appears the booms happened Sunday around 6:30 p.m., 9:00 p.m. and midnight in the area of Dobson and Frye.

In each of the entries, people briefly explained what they experienced:

"Felt like blasting in a mining town."

"My husband and I were in different areas of our house and heard the first boom. We were afraid something had hit our house and ran outside to find out what was going on but could not find or see anything. My husband then heard 2 more loud booms throughout the evening."

"First boom was loud and I felt the ground move. Second boom was not as loud and I felt no movement. Biggest boom was right before 9 p.m. and it rattled the walls in my house and sounded like a huge explosion. Definitely something going on!"

"Sounded like a cannon from the southeast"

"I met several neighbours outside after the boom trying to figure out what it was. It sounded like something hit the roof. The other neighbours seemed to have experienced the same thing."

"We heard and felt three hard jolts Sunday evening between 6 and 9 o'clock. We thought at first that it was our air conditioner. Two neighbours to our east and two neighbours to our west also heard and felt the jolts."

"One loud boom probably at 6:30..shook the house and my dogs freaked!! Thought an explosion, sonic boom or something hitting a house. Very surprised to see nothing on the news. It was BIG."

CBS 5 News spent all day Monday and Tuesday trying to get to the bottom of this mystery. There was an earthquake in Baja, California. on Sunday. However, the quake struck before the booms. Also, neighbours said their pool water stayed still, which didn't happen in past quakes.

Luke Air Force Base said they don't fly on Sunday and never fly in that area.

CBS 5 News also checked with Chandler Airport and Williams Gateway Airport. Both airports said they don't have jets that can fly at super sonic speeds.

Chandler police and fire departments have both looked into the noises and have no clue what caused them.

CBS 5 News checked with the City of Chandler's Waste Water Department and Public Works Department. Both reported no problems.

Crews will keep digging until they get answers.
