Clintonville, Wisconsin has been plaqued by strange booming noises and possible earth tremors the past few days – all unexplained. It has made the national news. Below is an excerpt from FOX News:
CLINTONVILLE, Wis. – Bemused curiosity is turning into worry and aggravation for families in a small Wisconsin town longing for peace and quiet after three nights of mysterious booming noises that have sent some residents into the streets — sometimes still in their pajamas.
The strange disturbance sounds like distant thunder, fireworks or someone slamming a heavy door. At first, many people were amused. But after a third restless night Tuesday into Wednesday, exasperation is mounting. And some folks are considering leaving town until investigators determine the source of the racket.
Possible sink hole soon to form? Earthquake coming? Methane build up under the ground? Nobody knows for sure, at least not at the writting of this post. One thing is for sure, this is just another reason to be a prepper. There could be a good potential need to get out of town in a hurry, and a bug out bag would be ideal for every person in that town. Further prepps beyond having a good bug out bag are also called for, such as having a good plan in place in case the town needs to be evacuated. If you get seperated from friends and family do you have a ‘meet here’ detination? Do you have a retreat you can go to? Does your vehicle have at least a half tank of gas and some minor provisions in the trunk? Copies of important papers kept at a secure location such as insurance forms and identification forms?
Hope for the best, but prepare for the worse.
FYI: It has been a few days since this post was orginally published, and the USGS has come out saying that small earthquakes are the cause. More tremors have been detected further south of Clintonville in the following days. The highest quake measured 1.5.
