lask-roofing




Around 3 am this morning an officer attempted to stop a vehicle in Boone County. The vehicle did not stop for the officer and was fleeing. A short time later the vehicle crashed into a pole. The driver fled on foot. He fled in the Fairgrounds Park/Prairie Fields area. (Business 20/Fairgrounds area) Officers are searching the area. They have brought in a K-9 to assist in the search for the suspect.

Update: The vehicle is a rental car from Iowa. Sounds like the suspect in question wants to turn himself in now and is at Harlem and N Second st in Machesney park.

Mysterious Loud Noise in The Rockford & Surrounding Areas




UPDATE: There is NO confirmation yet on the actual source. 

It is believed to be sonic booms. Probably from the military.

This same noise and vibration was felt literally all the way across the nation. Reports are coming in on the internet that people in San Jose all the way across to the east coast in the Carolinas, experienced the same thing. Still no official cause on the source.

“At this point, we’re pretty confident it’s not an earthquake,” said Carl Barnes, a meteorologist with the weather service. “Unfortunately, we really can’t say with any confidence what it was. … If it is military testing, which is certainly a possibility, they don’t let us know.”
 


Below are some possible theories on what may have caused it. But there has been no official confirmation on the source yet 

 


Update: Unknown if it is related, but there was a 3.4 magnitude earthquake around the same time frame, that happened 26 miles SE of Smith Center, Kansas

2016-11-16 17:58:48 UTC39.641°N   98.536°W5.0 km depth

From the USGS the earthquake registered 2.0 at 400 miles away.
Rockford area is approx. 500 miles away.This might have been what everyone felt/heard.
People are reporting they heard and felt it 3 times locally. So we can not confirm this is the source yet, but it is a possibility since people have felt this earthquake over 400 miles away. 

This morning several Rockford Scanner fans have asked us “What was that BOOM noise and had our house shaking”   Many have asked us this from Belvidere, Rockford, Machesney Park, Loves park, Roscoe, Beloit, etc…  It happened approx. 11 am. Several people are reporting they heard the boom up to 3 times. At the time of writing this, no earthquakes have been registered in our area.

It might have been a fast moving aircraft? But people said they felt it in the ground.

To early for it to freeze, but cant be ruled out.

Also the possibility of a meteorite coming through the atmosphere can’t be ruled out either.

There is a KC-135 doing touch and goes at the airport. But that is a slow moving refuel aircraft, that wouldn’t cause the “Boom”
