Summary : Are you interested in unexplained noises?

At approximately 9:00 a.m. Wednesday, March 12, a huge boom rattled windows and residents throughout south Louisiana and Mississippi. The event, as yet unexplained, shook a surface area 80 miles n/s and 100 miles e/w. Military installations in the area deny supersonic flight by any of their craft, and, at least on this occasion, they should be believed. This was no ordinary jet boom. In mid New Orleans, people went into the streets to look for signs of the explosion. The next day, newspapers reported the event, but, now, 5 days later, no explanation for the occurrence has been offered.I can send newpaper clipping if needed. I would need a fax number
