MYSTERY SOLVED: Earthquake it is. See here.
Mystery booms are now being heard in Montello, Wisconsin, a town 80 miles south of Clintonville. Is it spreading?
And something stinky in Fond du Lac. Is it related? Probably not but the link here.
UPDATE from Joe, a resident of Clintonville. Thanks Joe.
I’m the Joseph Clauson mentioned at the top of this page. The whole experience has been crazy! No one can explain what it is so far and I myself have not heard/felt it sine between 4-5 PM Tuesday afternoon! It was heard and felt by a few neighbors later than that, but with only getting 7 hrs of sleep the first two days this has been going on. I slept from 7 PM to 10 AM Wednesday. Day 2 of this wasn’t as frequent as Day 1, but more intense. I just thought I’d give you all an update from my view. Also there are a few factories here that work with lead and steal, but I’m not sure of what else may be used at other factories in the area.
UPDATE 3/22: As of 7:00pm EST, the USGS believes the mysterious booming noises in Clintonville were caused by a magnitude 1.5 earthquake. It has to do with the type of rock in their area causing noises as it shifts. Earthquakes aren’t common there so this wouldn’t have been heard before. Link here.
See…no “trumpets of doom” were involved. Yay! I’m kidding.
