    Could the strange booming sounds from a few days ago have come from the magma moving to the volcano???? Someone needs to check this out, it could answer a few question.


  2. Joe says:

    I wonder if this was the cause of the mysterious booming noise they heard earlier this week?


  3. Mordechai says:

    Check also the booming noise captured by Colorado hikers Aug 2011 (prior to earthquake).


  4. Jeannine says:

    Weeks before the October 2010 Mt Merapi eruption in Jogjakarta, deep booms inside the earth were heard on a daily basis. Also, other unusual noises from underground, like moving rumblings or lava flows below the earth.


  5. K says:

    This is probably where the noise came from but in other countries where the same noise was heard last year there aren’t in volcanoes so I wonder if the noise was indeed created by this volcano than why did those other countries make the same noise when they don’t have any? Is it earthquakes? I am very intrigued.
