Loud Clallam booms remain unexplained

Friday, February 27, 2015by  Jon Osterberg

Authorities cannot explain loud booms that shook homes near Port Angeles on Wednesday.
   Residents reported floors and windows rattling from explosive sounds that seemed to come from the Strait of Juan de Fuca, but there were no U.S. Navy or Coast Guard activities to account for it. Canadian forces said it wasn’t them, either.
   This is the latest in a series of mystery booms that have rattled Clallam County for years. Speculation on its cause ranges from lightning to cannons to small, shallow earthquakes. Read the Peninsula Daily News article.
