Another night of mysterious booms in Clintonville
CLINTONVILLE, Wis. (AP) — Sleep is interrupted again for some residents in the eastern Wisconsin city of Clintonville where a series of mysterious booms continued Monday night.
Police say they received nearly 100 phone calls throughout the night about the loud booms. Dispatcher Karen Wegenke says most residents called about 12:15 a.m., 1:20 a.m., 2:20 a.m. and a few calls about 5:08 a.m. Tuesday.
Authorities in Clintonville, about 40 miles west of Green Bay, are at a loss to explain the noise, which some have described as a jackhammer sound. Dozens of calls also came in to dispatchers early Monday.
Local officials have checked gas lines, sewers, water pressure and consulted seismologists, but have come up empty-handed.
