10News asked its Facebook fans if they felt it and well over 100 people responded.

Sallene Leang was working at a Seaport Village store when she felt the shaking.

"What I heard this morning … just the doors rattling; I didn't know what it was. I didn't think it was an earthquake because the ground wasn't shaking," said Leang.

The U.S. Geological Survey confirmed the shaking was not an earthquake. A representative from MCAS Miramar said they did not know what caused the booming sound.

Midway-area resident Carol Hill told 10News she thought the loud sound was her neighbor banging on her windows.

"All at once there was a knocking noise and a rumbling vibration on my kitchen window," Hill said.

One person said: "We felt it in Coronado but it did not feel like an earthquake. We thought it felt like an explosion or something."

Another Facebook fan said: "I live by Gillespie Field … I thought it was a jet taking off."

The National Weather Service has ruled out that the noise was caused by anything weather-related.
