Strange Sound Reported in San Diego, as "Sonic Rumble" Extends All the Way to Los Angeles

Residents from Chula Vista to Oceanside are reporting a large rumble around 12:45 p.m. Friday.

Some people describe it as sounding like a door slamming while others said it was strong enough to rattle windows.

A check of the U.S. Geological Survey website shows no earthquake activity.

One San Diego resident mentioned the sound via Twitter "Uh... La Jolla just shook. Or at least my street did. Big boom too."

Carlos Ortega, of Solana Beach, wrote to us, "An earthquake shook here at 1244pm. Shook windows and walls for a good 5 seconds."

Mercy Ramirez wanted NBC 7 San Diego to know, "We're in Bonita, our our office shook for about 5 seconds, was this an earthquake? We're on the third floor and everything shook."

NBC 7 San Diego's Dagmar Midcap was in Del Mar at the time and described it as a "Sonic 'rumble'". more
