Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (MS)

Bengaluru, May 20: The source of the sound that took the city dwellers by surprise and caused panic on the afternoon of Wednesday, May 20 has at last come to light. The residents are relived and calm now.

Around 1.45 pm on Wednesday, a huge blast like sound was heard in most parts of the city including places like Sarjapur, Whitefield, Electronic City, Marathalli, Indiranagara, Hebbal, J P Nagara and K R Puram. There were also rumours that it might be an earthquake. However, the officials of KSNDMC had clarified that there was no earthquake. This baffled the residents as to what is the reason that such a huge sound was heard in many parts of the city.

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has clarified all doubts and cleared the air. It said that the sound was generated when a war plane Sukhoi 30 took off from the HAL runway. When the warplane make a 90 degree take off, sound can be heard to a distance of 10 km according to the clarification given by HAL.

Many Bengalureans also took to Twitter and started giving their opinions on the source of the sounds. However, now the clarification by HAL has clarified the issue.

Loud sound, vibrations felt for miles in Bengaluru, reasons unknown

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SHP)

Bengaluru, May 20: In a strange set of incidents, a loud noise was heard near Whitefield area in Bengaluru on Wednesday afternoon at 1.30 pm. However, other residents across the city claimed to have felt tremors and windows rattling for five minutes along with some asserting to have heard a thunderous sound.

In a report by The News Minute, Bengaluru police commissioner Bhaskar Rao was quoted as saying, "No damage was reported anywhere in the city and no calls have been made to 100. We have asked the Air Force Control Room to check if this was a flight." Rao maintained that the police department was still awaiting a response from the Air Force on the matter.

The sound was heard as far as Cooke Town, Vivek Nagar, Ramamurthy Nagar, Hosur Road, HAL, Old Madras Road, Ulsoor, Kundanahalli, Kammanahalli, CV Raman Nagar, Whitefield and HSR Layout in the city. Several residents took to social media to state that they felt vibrations.

A jet aircraft could be heard flying over Bengaluru. There is speculation that the sound could be a ‘sonic boom’ from a fighter jet flying over the city. A sonic boom is the result of fast movement of aircraft – A thunderous sound is produced when these aircraft fly overhead faster than the speed of sound. A sonic boom is a phenomenon when shock waves are created in the atmosphere when an object moves faster than the speed of sound. Sound travels at 343 metres per second in the air.

Meanwhile, the Karnataka State Natural Disaster Management Centre (KSNDMC) have confirmed that the sound was not an earthquake. "Earthquake activity will not be restricted to one area and will be widespread. We have checked our sensors and there is no earthquake activity recorded today," Srinivas Reddy director of KSNDMC.

Some pointed out that Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) could be conducting regular flight tests of Light Combat Aircraft (LCA).

A HAL spokesperson has also confirmed that the sound was not produced from a HAL aircraft.

Back in 2005, a similar ‘sonic boom’ was heard in Bengaluru. Some pointed out that it was possible that Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) was conducting regular flight tests of LCA.

    Sukhoi travels at 1300+ KMS per hour hence sonic boom may be the cause for the misterious sound , also there are lot of untoward incidents happening in kashmir border from few days, connect the dots.....
    Rafael is even a better machine , exciting times for IAF..

    Jesus on coming meteor

    Message to John Leary

    Friday, December 20, 2019:
    Jesus said: “My people, a Redeemer has been promised to mankind for many years, because of the original sin. I have performed a miracle so I could be incarnated as a man like all of you in every way except sin. This is why My Blessed Mother had to be born without original sin, so I could be carried in a sacred vessel. So now you know about the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity who was made visible to all the people of the world. I became a man for one purpose, which is to die on the cross to redeem everyone from their sins, who accepts Me and seeks My forgiveness. I have brought you salvation, and I have opened the gates of heaven for all those souls who are worthy to enter.”

    Jesus said: “My people, you are going to see some unusual events that could shock people with the severity of the destruction. You have heard of a large meteor that fell in Russia and it wiped out many pine trees. This coming meteor will be on the same scale, and it will shock people with the amount of damage it will cause. Do some research on this event in Russia, because this is about to be repeated.”

    Note: Tunguska explosion (June 30, 1908) knocked down 80 million trees over an area of 830 square miles. The shock wave from the blast would have measured 5.0 on the Richter magnitude scale. The fireball was 50 to 100 meters wide and it produced 185 times more energy than the Hiroshima atomic bomb.

    This could be a warning message for the present generation.
    Initially God speaks us through his prophets lovingly politely but when we still don't pay attention then he has to speak through thunder or whirlwind this thunder could be sickness, earthquake, tsunami, or any sickness like Corona, cancer etc.
    In the book of Job 38:1
    There we read God spoke to job through whirlwind

    Jesus on year of chaos

    Message to John Leary

    Tuesday, February 25, 2020:
    Jesus said: “My people, you are feeling down at this time of year with all of the snow, rain, and clouds, so I am giving you a glimpse of My coming victory over the evil ones to lift up your spirits. The evil ones will soon take over the world for a brief time, but I will tell you when it is time to come to My refuges of protection. I told you this year will be a year of chaos and crisis. Now, you are seeing this corona virus spreading to other countries. If this virus becomes a world pandemic, this will be a crisis for all of My people in America. I told you to have extra food at your homes, and now if you will be quarantined to your homes, then you will be needing your food and water. If your stores have empty shelves, then I will be calling you to My refuges where I will multiply your food, water, and fuels. People may panic if they see food shortages and your lives may be in danger. Keep watching your news to see how this virus is spreading, and its effects on your economy. You may even see runs on the banks as you have seen in China. Be prepared to leave for My refuges when I will warn you with My inner locution. Pray that this virus does not spread all over the world. My son, if there are many quarantines, you may not be able to travel to any more talks.”
