Strange Sounds In The Sky Over Staten Island

Loud Sound Over Staten Island: Military Jets, Tornado, Or…Other?

On Monday, January 4, 2021 two Staten Islander News staffers were hiking in the Greenbelt when they heard a rumbling in the sky.

At first, the staffers believed that the sound was from a flyover of military jets. But then the mysterious sound kept getting louder and louder until it was deafening.

There were black clouds overhead. Was this a a tornado? Staten Island is actually a real “tornado alley,” and we’ve had numerous twisters in years past. One of the staffers said it sounded a lot like the skies had on the night of Superstorm Sandy in 2012.

Other possible scenarios considered included a tsunami headed toward the coast. You can hear the staffers wondering if it was a good idea to get back to their car.

As of now, it’s still not known what caused the sound. It lasted a few minutes, and staffers managed to get the last minute or so recorded, as it was diminishing in volume.
