CLINTONVILLE - The City of Clintonville has installed new equipment to track the mysterious booms that have shaken that community for almost two weeks.
The city has asked the U.S. Geological Survey for help.
Four seismic sensors are buried throughout the Clintonville area. Along with sensitive audio equipment, it has been gathering earthquake data since Thursday night.
The city administrator released photos, but she won't say exactly where the sensors are buried.
"It should be able to feed directly back to the USGS on real time, so they can be monitoring it at any given time," said City Administrator Lisa Kuss.
It's a partnership between the U.S. Geological Survey and Michigan Technological University. The USGS provided the software, while Michigan Tech loaned the underground equipment to the city.
"There's reasons that we need to make sure that we're assuring the community that that's what it is. We feel these larger events, but because the in the earthquake's magnitude scale they're small. It's difficult to monitor those," said Kuss.
People FOX 11 talked to say they know the new monitors won't help predict an earthquake, but they say the new equipment will give them peace of mind.
"I'm glad to hear they are installed, and that hopefully we can get some answers to what's going on in our little city," said Melissa Wait, Clintonville resident.
"I think it will help a lot because there are some people thinking they still don't believe they are earthquakes, and some think that they are, so I think it'll give a better answer," said Tiffany Green, Clintonville resident.
"What we at least can assure the community is that we now have more devices here, and they are closer to our community, right in the community. So if there is future activity, we'll have a greater chance of capturing what it is," said Kuss.
It's been almost two weeks since the first booms were reported and three days since the most recent ones.
Kuss says the system will be able to feed live information to the U.S. Geological Survey, as early as next week.
