Scientist Says NJ Vibrations Not From Earthquake Saturday

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — What’s shaking in New Jersey? Apparently not an earthquake.

People in the southern part of the state reported feeling the ground vibrate at about 10 a.m. Saturday.

But a geophysicist for the U.S. Geological Survey tells The Press of Atlantic City that although the cause isn’t known, no earthquake was detected.

Paul Caruso says the vibration could have been caused by a thunderstorm off the coast or a sonic boom from a military jet doing flight exercises.

A rare 5.8-magnitude East Coast earthquake centered in Virginia rattled New Jersey in late August, wobbling floors and shaking buildings.

    It was HAARP that caused the vibration that many more than the reported “dozen” felt. I am aware of the programs existence and understand how it effects cloud layers….I have the pictures showing the high layer status go from solid to zebra stripe and then back to a wispy cloud layer all within maybe a 90 second period something that would never occur in nature, possibly in a science fiction movie, but not on this planet…naturally

    I took the pictures because this is exactly what happened to the cloud layer in central NJ during the earlier earthquake in VA….a couple of miles from a nuclear plant…it wasn’t in DC as reported….FYI…within a 3-5 minute period after the VA quake there was another quake of equal magnitude in CO, also a few miles from a nuclear facility….that one somehow was never reported on…..anyway…if you want to know what caused the vibrations felt the other day… was HAARP….100%

    Don’t believe me? Doesn’t matter….because it was HAARP.
