Mystery 'sonic' booms are hitting Desert Hot Springs, Southern California, almost daily (Update)

Desert Hot Springs booms

A big mystery is surrounding Desert Hot Springs tonight after a series of powerful explosions has rocked the city. They shake windows and some residents describe them as small earthquakes.

The blasts began a couple of months ago and as recently as Monday night, the big booms have been shaking the foothill community.


Comment: They've been regularly heard throughout Southern California, along with many other parts of the US, off and on for some years now.


In a city of 27,000 people, no one knows what they are or where they are coming from. But they sure do hear them and feel them.

"They're like a big explosion. Totally like boom!" said Desert Hot Springs resident Regina Robinson.

Almost every evening big blasts rock several areas of the city. The Desert Hot Springs Police has received call after call. Everyone saying the same thing.

Comment: That strongly suggests something non-local, either atmospheric or deep underground. We suspect that most of these booms, particularly in an earthquake-prone areas like SOCAL, are seismic in origin.

Update:

On December 24th, Brian Blueskye of the CV Independent reported that residents of Desert Hot Springs are still hearing these baffling booms:
It's been a while since I've personally heard one, but other residents are still reporting them, often leading to discussions among the Desert Hot Springs Neighborhood Group on Facebook. People are demanding answers from Desert Hot Springs Chief of Police Dale Mondary.

Unfortunately, Mondary doesn't have any.

"Most of (the booms) don't get called into the police department at all," Mondary said. "I just notice them on social media when I'm tagged in those posts."

Mondary said he has no idea what's causing them.

"We have not been able to pinpoint a specific area," he said. "Honestly, part of it relates to our geographical location: We're surrounded by a mountain range, and the sound reverberates. People will call and say, 'I heard it right here,' or they post on social media, 'I heard it right here.' Then across the town, someone will say, 'No, I heard it from right here.' So that's obviously part of our problem. When we go and check these areas out, we find absolutely nothing-no signs of any explosives going off."

Local resident Lesley McKeever posted a question on her Facebook status shortly after 10am asking if anyone else had heard the loud bang - or felt the "huge shake".

She said: "Anyone else in Swords just feel a huge shake and hear a loud bang about ten minutes ago???
