Mysterious thunder recorded in Tucson, Arizona but nobody knows what it was | ELIMPARCIAL.COM

TUCSON – People throughout the Tucson area reported hearing a series of thunderings and feeling the ground shaking around 10:40 a.m. on Tuesday, December 29.

“The cause could be anything from sonic booms, an earthquake or an explosion in one of our mines in the area,” reported local news media.

According to Kolb 13, an assistant professor in the Department of Geosciences at the University of Arizona said that a seismometer detected the event and that it was probably not an earthquake.

“The event was definitely recorded,” said Eric Kiser. “It doesn’t have the characteristics of an earthquake and it was probably an explosion or a sonic boom.”

“We are aware of the strong boom reported in Tucson this morning, but we did not have any aircraft capable of breaking the sound barrier flying at the time,” said a spokesman for Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.

Meanwhile, a person from Asarco’s Silver Bell mine said they were not making detonations at that time of day and they even felt the tremor at their facilities, which are located on Avra ​​Valley Road in Marana.

We are working to contact the other mines in southern Arizona.
