SAN DIEGO (AP) - A mystery boom that set off car alarms from Oceanside to Chula Vista turned out to be sonic booms produced by a pair of Navy jets.
Lt. Aaron Kakiel tells U-T San Diego (http://bit.ly/NLQ18u) that the Navy initially denied responsibility for the noise but said the F/A-18 jets did a flight demonstration in conjunction with the USS Carl Vinson's family day.
The carrier is 32 miles west of San Diego at sea and Kakiel says the mistake was made because officials originally thought the carrier was much further from shore.
The U.S. Geological Survey says it received more than 500 reports from people in San Diego County who felt shaking Friday. The survey maintains an online site where people can report what they felt.
