Sounded to me like a sonic boom from an aircraft. I thought a tree fell on our roof except for the fact there are no trees around me. Someone suggested it might have been a bomb drop test in Ocala forest but IMO that was too "sharp" a boom to be from that distance. That would have been more echoy from that distance like far away thunder. I'm going to go with sonic boom for now but don't really know. It WAS loud and it shook our house.

The Navy is conducting bombing exercises in Ocala National Forest this weekend. It's been on the news for the last couple days. This happens several times a year.

Felt it in Pine Ridge.

Similar to a Sonic boom.

Every year about this time and it often coincides with a hunting season, Duck?

We didn’t feel or hear anything here in Sanibel near Bonifay CC.

It sounded around 8:00 at our house too (next door neighbor heard it as well). It sounded close and not far away, as when the bombing happens. Our house shook too. We thought it sounded like a very loud gun or something similar.
