Does anyone know what the constant loud booming noises that have been going on around Graham for at the last 2 days is being caused by? They have gradually gotten a little louder and tonight even woke up two of my children. Please any info would be helpful.

I also hear that last night, I live in Puyallup, South Hill. Last night was the first I'd heard it. at about 1am it shook my windows and they were about 5 seconds a part, then they gradually got more quiet and farther apart. Finally about 1:40am they stopped. I had no idea what it was. It sounded like explosions, like in war or something. I thought it might be FOrt Lewis doing training, but in urban area on a Thursday night? I don't know. I have a friend that lives in Graham and works for the county, I'll text him and see if he knows what it is and then I will post back here to let you know.

I live by Maplewood school downtown and I was awoken last night to loud bangs, that at first sounded like someone banging on my garage door. Once I went outside I noticed it sounded like explosions coming from the South.

I heard it too I live in an apartment and I'm almost went and banged on my neighbors door asking them to stop doing whatever they were doing. I couldn't really tell if it was them making the noise though it was hard to tell where it was coming from. Very consistant and shook the house. I live in downtown Puyallup as well a co-worker who lives in Graham also heard it and another co-worker who lives on the other side of town from me heard it. STRANGE I'd like to know what it is!

I just found out that it was Ft. Lewis practicing with their tanks. Nice. Can't they do that on the weekend or in Yakima? Not right next to a communities? whatever

Or maybe not at 1:00 in the freaking morning to wake up people as far away as Puyallup?

I still think it's strange that it was a very timely consistant noise are we sure this is the noise we heard?

I heard it too at my house in Puyallup last night. Items on the walls and glasses were actually rattling.

Does anyone by chance know how someone (aka me) could register a complaint?

Well I heard them again last night and even this morning I occasionally hear them, there isn't any kind of pattern to them though sometimes I hear one every now and then but then there are times I hear them in groups, load enough that a picture fell off the wall, I have 4 kids and it scares them so much they can't sleep. What the hell.

I heard on the news it was Ft. Lewis doing night fire. As far as practicing at night, get a grip, wars happen at night too. Be glad it is only the noise of practice, not actual war in our area.

Fort Lewis doesn't have tanks.

I'm assuming all of you bitching about this moved here before the military base did right?

If not, shut up and get over it. You moved here knowing (or at least if you had more than 2 brain cells in that head of yours rubbing together you should have known) that there was a military base next door, did you think they were going to be throwing flowers at each other to practice what combat is like?

I've been at this site for 20 min now and I'm starting to think that all my neighbors are retarded.

I'm guessing that it's happening again?
It's incredibly frustrating as it varies greatly in strength from barely audible to alarmingly loud with noticeable vibrations.

Yeah, I'm in Summit(Canyon and 512) and if it's as loud here as it is, it must suck to be in Spanaway or Graham. It shouldn't get loud enough to wake the kids or wife, but still annoying. Like a neighbor is watching a movie on an incredibly bass-happy surround sound system.
