Can someone please tell me about this loud noise. The noise sound like an earthquake. I've heard this noise 3 times and been living in Homestead for 10 months.

I think it has something to do with Turkey Point and they are releasing compressed air or water vapor from reactors...it is "normal" otherwise you would hear a warning siren if something wen really wrong...

What you are hearing are the fighter jets from the air base.

But you are not the OP.

And yes, it's probably just the fighter jets from Homestead Joint Air Reserve Base, they do all kinds of training down there. Occasionally they even have some F/A-22's there too.

I've lived in Homestead for over 10 years and have yet to "figure" out what the loud, RUMBLING noises that make everything in your house shake is!! I live 2 minutes from the Homestead Air Force Base and I can tell you what it's not...a fighter jet, commercial plane, private jet, helicopter.

On one occasion I can tell you about, heading North on 137th Ave turning onto 288th street, my son said to me: " Mommy look! What is that?" As I was driving I said to him: "Baby, mommy can't look right now, I need to keep my eyes on the road". My son, " But mommy, what is that?" (he was 9 at the time). I then put my turning signal on and immediately pulled to the side of the road and looked towards the direction my child was exclaiming about.

Okay, all I could do was sit there in awe of what I was seeing! If anyone know 288 street like I do, they would know that the "base" is located right there and takes up a very large area right next to the Homestead Job Corps Center. Yes, the loud, RUMBLING noise was very present at the time. Hovering directly above the AFB was a grayish, metal HUGE disk! Let me say this so you can just throw that thought out of you minds right now...... I am of sound mind and have all my wits about me! I had no clue to what we were seeing at the time,, NONE!

Sitting there for what seem about 3 or 4 minutes, this "thing" for lack of a better word just hovered in the air and suddenly began rising up, up, up, and then ""ZOOM""!! Just shot off up and out of the distance in a split second!! All I did was turn to my boy and said wow!! I had no explanation for my child. To this day I'm not sure what is was, what it is.....though we hear this same RUMBLING noise that shakes our house something awful time and time again. We tend to hear this noise around about 2:00 AM -4:00 AM. I note the times because if my little ones happen to hear it in their sleep, they come running and screaming to my room and jumps in my bed! It's an awful sound, like none other.

I hear the different sound passing over the house on a daily basis. I can identify each craft by the type of noise they make. I know the usual sound of the fighter jets, we often go and watch the shows that are performed here. I know the sound of helicopters and commercial planes that regularly fly over. But let me tell you something, when you hear this loud, RUMBLING, house shaking, awful sound, it is one you will NOT soon forget!
