Relax it is the US Navy doing its practice bombing runs. Go back to sleep everything is under control.

I don't know. The Scuttlebutt is, the missile was aimed at the Jacksonville Range Complex, but they missed.

Keep your head down!!

It sounded way too close to be from that and only heard a single one. I've heard the bombing in the past but they're more distant and didn't rattle the house. Sounded like it was over-head so "maybe" a sonic boom. Funny thing is...some folks heard it and others didn't....in the same neighborhoods.

Agreed. And if the timing was right at that hour they may have thought it was, cough, fireworks.

Someone should be able to check officially what caused the sound and shaking of the homes. If for no other reason, in order to put peoples’ minds at ease. Joking around when someone is worried, is not kind.

That’s what I’m wondering too. If I was there you know I’d visit every office till I found out, at least what they think. And check everything else out too.
When I was at Atwood Bungalows there was a morning blast but it was no biggie. However, I knew what had happened. With the fear of sinkholes etc it’s nice to know that it is only a regulated blast.

Usually sinkholes are quiet.
