During November and early December, I used to hear these occasional BOOMs following by brief, low rumbling. One of these was strong enough to shake the house. I didn't post about it here at the time, because there were a couple of other threads on this phenomena over in the Tampa Bay forum. And then the booms seemed to stop.

However, just a few moments ago there was a loud BOOM just like what I was hearing back in November. Has anyone else experienced this in the Ocala area?

two more booms since I last posted, one of them just now. This time it sounded like it was followed by a thud. Weird. We're along 200. Are they blasting or fracking around here? Or is this some sort of weird sonic boom?

It's the military, you have Pine-Castle bombing range in the Ocala National Forest plus the military also plays war games regularly in the gulf. You would be surprised how far the sound travels. Much of Central Florida can hear the booms

Thanks. I did not know about the bombing range.

I head it today, too, after not hearing anything since the early spring. I was just reading somewhere today that if this 5G network thing goes full bore, we'll be hearing something like a sonic boom every five minutes. Swell.
