#SonicBoom trends on social media as loud bang shakes Bengaluru again


Bengaluru folks experiences another supersonic boom in the city. While some are nostalgic and some petrified by the experience.

On July 2, a loud boom has once again shaken the whole of Bengaluru. Just after 12:30 pm, some residents of the city took to Twitter to share that they heard a loud ‘thud’ and a ‘boom’ sound. As per the tweets, the sound was heard in the Sarjapur area, JP Nagar, Benson Town, Ulsoor, ISRO Layout, HSR Layout, South Bengaluru, and East Bengaluru.

Interestingly, a similar boom sound was heard last year in May in Bengaluru itself. While some residents had described it as a ‘thunderous noise’, others had said they felt tremors, with their windowpanes rattling for as long as five seconds.

Last year, the sound was heard in places like 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.

However, sources from the police had informed that the sound could have been caused by a Sukhoi 30, and later it was confirmed by the Indian Air Force.

This time the supersonic boom was muted in some areas, while some residents shared that their windows rattled due to the impact of the sound. Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has said that none of its flights made the noise.

Here’s what netizens have to say about the ‘sonic boom’:

Bangalore folks, did you guys hear it?
