Wisconsin Booms Continued - 4/14/2012

In my attempt to continue covering the Wisconsin booming noises I have stumbled across a couple more interviews and articles I felt were important in looking at the whole picture. Below is a detailed interview with the City Administrator of Clintonville Wisconsin, Lisa Kuss- followed by a couple more updates on the booms!

Clintonville Booms Have Quieted Down

CLINTONVILLE (AP) - The reports of booming in Clintonville have quieted down.

Residents started reporting the sounds and shaking March 18 and experts detected a 1.5-magnitude earthquake about two days later. The reports started to die down until another big boom over a week later. There have been a few reports since then.

Four seismometers have been installed and so far confirmed a .1 magnitude earthquake March 30.

City administrator Lisa Kuss said Wednesday police have only received a handful of calls recently.

U.S. Geological Survey Geophysicist John Bellini says he's still comparing their data with resident reports but haven't found anything substantial.

He suspects the events are a swarm of small earthquakes - which are not unusual across the nation, can last up to a few months and can be sporadic.
