VIRGINIA BEACH -- Some area residents reported significant shaking around 9pm on Wednesday night.
Virginia Beach 911 dispatch received calls from the Shadowlawn section of Virginia Beach about a loud boom followed by shaking of homes. Police responded to the area but could not find a source for the noise.
NAS Oceana Public Affairs Officer, Kelly Stirling, indicated that the shaking was not the result of any operations at the naval air station. A spokesperson for Langley Air Force Base said there were not flying Wednesday night and there weren't any other planes training that could have made such a noise.
The U.S. Geological Survey that monitors earthquakes around the world from its headquarters in Colorado had not registered an earthquake in the Hampton Roads area.
As of 11pm Wednesday night there had been 195 postings to WVEC's Facebook page regarding the mysterious shaking.
Michelle Balfe of Hampton was in bed watching the Country Music Awards when she heard the windows rattling.
"At first I thought it was an earthquake, because I had been through several," Balfe said. The one here in August and the couple when I lived on the west coast, so I really did think it was an earthquake, the way everything shook."
