Hundreds of people were left perplexed over the weekend by a mysterious loud boom that shook a city. The cause of the strange noise heard in New Hampshire, United States, on Sunday (October 10) is still unknown.
Videos of trees and homes trembling as the deafening noise is heard have flooded social media. It could have been anything from a meteor to a US Air Force jet being tested overhead, according to some. When questioned by the New York Times this week, the US Air Force refused to confirm or deny anything. Many people on social media speculated that the noise was caused by a minor earthquake, but the National Earthquake Information Center in the United States said that none of the agency’s stations had found any evidence of an earthquake in New England in the previous seven days.
