It is worth mentioning that there have also been a number of such unusual reports around the world, including noise in Bratislava and other noises heard by Texans. Strange sounds are not limited to America. Around the world, they are described under different names such as “Bansal gunfire” in the Ganges Delta and the Bay of Bengal, “yan” in Shikoku, Japan, and “Mistpouffers” in Belgium. Loud noises have been known to be particularly frequent near Lake Seneca in New York’s Finger Lakes region. Known as the Seneca Guns, the sounds are so loud they can often vibrate windows and doors. Back in the Charleston earthquake in August 1886 those noises were heard in the weeks following the event, coinciding with many aftershocks. Scientists are currently using seismic data from the EarthScope Transportable Array (ESTA) to try to explain noise around the United States, comparing it with explanations of noise from 2013 onwards.
