Loud Booms In Amador and Calaveras Counties
Loud noises last week had some local residents on edge. KVGC received several reports of loud booms from people throughout Amador and Calaveras Counties, mostly on the western ends of the counties. We checked into it and found that it was likely a combination of several things – there was blasting going on in the Jackson Valley, the Mythbusters team was in Amador County doing some explosions for a couple of days. Also, there is a military base in Nevada that does regular testing of ordinance and when the atmospheric conditions are right we can actually hear those explosions.
