CHINO VALLEY, AZ (CBS5) –
Last year, about this same time, residents in Verde Valley heard some mysterious, unexplained booms.
town of Chino Valley.
“The way to describe it is like a hammer being slammed down next to the house,” said Chino Valley resident Chris Schaich. “It was two hard hits and the house jumped, if felt like a jump, and I could hear the windows rattle a little bit, some glasses rattled.”
Schaich lives in quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of Chino Valley. He said the first mysterious sound happened Monday around 10:20 a.m. and the second one at 8:40 a.m. Tuesday. He said it was a vertical jolt and after having lived through plenty of earthquakes while a resident in Southern California, he was sure it wasn’t one.
No earthquakes were reported in Arizona by the U.S. Geologic Survey on Tuesday.
