Hawaii Mystery Booms/Earthquake Swarm - Police Scanner Audio [VIDEO]

""We haven't seen event rates this high or this size of earthquakes become this large since 2006," said Wes Thelen, the US Geological Survey's Seismic Network Director.

The USGS's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory recorded over 60 earthquakes ( [link to earthquake.usgs.gov] strong enough to be located beneath Kilauea, over a dozen of which were greater than a magnitude 2.0; the largest was a magnitude 3.2 earthquake.

"We are still seeing increased rates of seismisity in that area. We just had a magnitude 2.4 come through during the course of this call," Thelen said.

Previous earthquake "swarms" have occurred at this same spot near the boundary between Mauna Loa and Kilauea Volcanos in 1990, 1993, 1997 and 2006.

The USGS received about ten reports from residents who felt Wednesday's swarm.

"I was at home on my computer at about 8:40 and coincidentally I was blogging about the earthquakes that were happening throughout that time, all of a sudden a loud boom and a half-second later, my house shook," said Pahoa resident Damon Tucker.

Damon Tucker was about 30 miles away in Pahoa. However, he's never heard an explosion before an earthquake. He was told Hawaii County Civil Defense said the "boom" cannot be explained."

Help me with understanding this "boom" they keep hearing before this wave of movement. I've only been in one earthquake. Is this normal to hear booms before a quake, anywhere?

I have been in two major EQ's and don't remember hearing a boom but I do remember primal roar during the quake. The sound of an earthquake is like nothing you have ever heard before, very scary.

I woke up to a pretty good quake in CA. The ground was rolling and it reminded me of surfing waves, and the sound was like a freight train was in my house. But, no boom.

Yes, I too remember a rumbling as the earthquake happened. I just am curious about this boom sound prior.

Maybe the boom is from gas explosions in the magma that is moving.
