    'Frost Quakes' May Be Hitting Chicago As Temperature Drops To Record-Breaking Lows..

    The winter weather isn't done with Chicago; now there is talk of frost quakes.

    CNN affiliate WGN reported Wednesday that viewers in the Chicago area were awakened by a series of booms.


    "I thought I was crazy! I was up all night because I kept hearing it," viewer Chastity Clark Baker said on Facebook, the news station reported. "I was scared and thought it was the furnace. I kept walking through the house. I had everyone's jackets on the table in case we had to run out of here."

    That boom was no furnace ready to burst, but it probably was a weather phenomenon as dauntingly named as the "firenado": the frost quake.


    A frost quake, or cryoseism, occurs when the water underground freezes and expands causing the soil and rock to crack.
    That booming or banging sound usually begins when there is a sudden drop in temperature, WGN reported, much like Chicago's recent dip to a record-breaking low of 27 below.

      Record-Shattering Arctic Blast Keeps The Midwest In A Deep Freeze..

      The past 48 hours in the American Midwest have been about endurance, as a breathtaking cold settled in over a massive stretch of the country. The record-setting frigid temperatures some of the coldest on the planet Thursday have frozen the Great Lakes, taxed electrical and natural gas infrastructure, endangered livestock and tested the mettle of millions who are used to the cold but had never experienced anything like this.

      In some areas Thursday, temperatures dropped below minus-50 degrees, and the extreme weather was blamed for several deaths across the region, including people who appear to have frozen to death in Milwaukee, Detroit and Rochester, Minn.

        I know I heard a Loud boom upon waking 2 days ago. Shook my whole house. Though I feel confident it was just my house reacting ti the extreme cold. I'm still getting the booms and bangs, but not as loud as that one. I'm in SE Michigan.
        Don't seek too much knowledge. You just may be putting more weight on your shoulders than you're able to bare. Let God be the one to decide how quickly you grow.
