West Michigan puzzled over Sunday night booms WEST MICHIGAN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – People are buzzing over what could have possibly caused a loud boom and violent shaking last night and this morning throughout West Michigan.
The reports came in from people in Calhoun, Branch and Kalamazoo Counties. People from all over say they felt and heard it, but Newschannel Three has only heard of one case of actual damage happening during the same time.
John Nieuwenhuis, who lives in Oshtemo, says that he felt and heard the explosion, which shook his entire house. “Where the two trees are parallel and something completely scrapped both trees off at the same height and laid them to the west,” said Nieuwenhuis.
Nieuwenhuis called the fire department but after extensively searching, they couldn’t find the source of an explosion. “I’ve never seen anything like this, we cut down trees, we log trees and what could have taken this down I have no idea,” said Nieuwenhuis.
News-channel Three tried to search into what might have caused the explosions but, it was a clear night and there was no earthquake activity reported anywhere in the Midwest. Air Traffic Control in Kalamazoo says no planes were in the area that might have broken the sound barrier.
