Sound without vibration feels like a contradiction. I assume your local TV or radio station has made recordings... I’m sure everything is fine and that all will be explained soon, but in the mean time, you and your love ones are in my prayers.

San Diego residents rattled by 3 loud booms, following tremor

March 30, 2012 – SAN DIEGO, CA – The USGS confirmed a small earthquake struck San Diego County Thursday night. The quake struck with a magnitude of 3.3 and at a depth of 7 miles at 11:09 p.m. The epicenter of the earthquake was four miles south-southeast of the Palomar Observatory, 17 miles northeast of Escondido and 39 miles north-northeast of San Diego, according to a computer-generated USGS report. News stations in the area said they received over a dozen calls from concerned viewers who described the earthquake as very loud and said it was accompanied by three eerie booms. There were also reports of violent shaking. No injuries or damage was reported the tremor. No one in our generation remembers so many small tremors across the world triggering so many sonic booms. One has to wonder what is happening in the earth beneath our feet. –The Extinction Protocol

My bet is still the farallon.

People talking about this and talking about that, like the North American plate starting to buckle or cosmic influences. Nah nothing makes more sense than we are losing the thermoblanket called the Farallon.

With the USGS buying heavy into it's new seismic array system we should soon get a thermal imaging real time of the entire USA portion of the North American Plate. That will tell the story.

What's that and what do you think is causing it to disappear?

The Farallon plate was the huge plate that abutted the great continent of Pangaea. As it broke apart what is now the North American Plate rode on top of it and as it did the Farallon subducted so far east what is left of of it lies between the Rockies(which were created by this subduction) and the Atlantic coast. The Juan de Fuca and the Cocos plates are the last remaining visible vestiges of this one huge plate. Anyways it is in my belief that sitting on top of the subducted Farallon not only acted as an anchor for the North American Plate but indeed in relation to other areas provided a nice shield from earth's mantle.

In the yearly heat maps of North America you can clearly see the outline and extent of the Farallon drawn by the chilling of the lithosphere temps. Over the last few years one can also see that area of the continental USA are warming east of the Rockies.

If I am correct in thinking that the Farallon is now finally succumbing to the mantle in masse it would explain much. Not the least of which would be small to moderate earthquakes and in time larger ones.

The Farallon plate

Sorry, I got the thought of a Farallon "boundary layer" in my head and it confused me. I recall now what it is.

I think that an excess of heat from the mantle could be causing issues at the crust and lithosphere. It could certainly cause and increase in the loss of the Farallon plate as well as affect other plates worldwide.

I'm not sure what would be the exact cause of increased mantle temperature. It could be something as simple as changes in convection for some reason (e.g. natural occurring convection cycles, off centered core due to gyroscopic precession, and etc)

In my mind, the above could be related to changes in the Earth's magnetic field either through some melting of the inner core or its misalignment.

I think it's a good possibility that all of this is related to the Earth experiencing periodic ice ages, probably through heating of the oceans which would increase atmospheric moisture content (it's what I was going to mine the USGS data for) and through increased volcanic activity like we're currently seeing.

Whether there are beyond the Earth influences, I haven't a clue.

It's ALL interesting and thanks for the 'splaining it to me again, :)

Well, if you have ever read about Paul Bunyan you should know that all they have to do is have the whole town listen together and they can hear things as soon as they happen. If it takes an hour for one man to hear it then sixty people listening together can hear it in one minute. A town with a population of 3600 all listening together could hear it in one second (providing of course that there are no deaf people in the group). Do you see how that works?

Oh, yeah [think of Frances McDormand saying it in "Fargo."] It makes Wisconsin sense.
