|Sonic boom in Myrtle Beach
It was between 7:00 - 7:30 pm. Here in myrtle beach. The wife and I were at home when we herd a load sonic boom followed by fighter jets one minute after. As soon as we herd the blast we rushed to check the kids then we herd the jets screaming accross the sky. We ran out side as well as some neighbors .I have not herd a sonic blast since I live at Edwards AFB in California. My wife pointed out 3 lights in a straight line that just seemed to faid out as fast as they appeared it freaked us out and I blew it off as just some military practice. The local news is not very helpfull and are just as confused as myself. I have herd and seen these befor in california with the excepion of the strange lights, and sounds. To me the fighter jets sounded more like they were chasing something, not just practice. I have herd a report of an Air Raid siren going off in NC just befor the sonic blast. This come from someone in Surfside beach who was on the phone with a friend in NC at the time and herd it all. I have also watched a report on the news and one persons experiance was close to ours and she discribed the lights as flairs. Well I live around the military long enough this was not normal. Then I was searching the internet and found somewere on this site someone in Goergetown saw lights but no sound....
