Sometime preceding last night’s 6.9 earthquake here in Eureka California there was a big flash boom explosion heard throughout Eureka and the surrounding areas, including the Manila peninsula and Myrtletown suburb to the east. Here in central Eureka I heard it, it was loud enough so it got me out of bed, looking out my window. It sounded to me like a car crashed right outside my window. Other people blocks away have described the same feeling of being near to it. So I will infer that it was some kind of air burst. But who knows for sure. The conspiracy theories here have already started.
For me it sounded very loud but my best description would be the sound of a big green trash dumpster dropped from 10 stories or so right outside my window. I don’t remember the flash but I was almost asleep.
From a careful reading of the reports and my own senses I do sense that the actual physical location of this flash bang was a bit to the east of me, perhaps down near the Shell station on 5th. Reports from east of that location tend to report it as being to the west.
Theories include earthquake lights, naval weapons testing offshore, sonic booms, assholes with household chemicals, fireworks, stolen flashbangs from military or police, meteorite, aliens. Fun stuff. Or a transformer blowing up. But that usually happens with very windy conditions or very hot conditions. We had a very windy night four or five nights ago but last night was pretty calm.
Of course it could have been a big lightning strike. Occams razor. If that’s so there might be a record of it with the meteorologists. We have had a wet soaker rain front come through here the last couple of days, but I have not seen or heard any thunder or lightning.
they are talking about it here:
“We just got in with a load of fish and we saw a whale dying with a large open chunk of flesh about 17 feet long. Weird stuff.”
