Some Alhambra residents and officials are concerned over noises that go "boom" in the middle of the night in the northwest section of the city. Even the City Manager is puzzled.
According to a report in the Pasadena Start News the noises have been heard sporadically since February. City officials said that since Feb. 15, the city has received 114 reports of boom through ophone calls to the Alhambra police Departmetn and messages reeived through the city hotline and social media.
Accordinto to one city source the highest concentration of reports have come from the city's northeast quadrant north of Mission Road and Atlantic Blvd. The city repoted that it has contacted the County Public Works Department and the Alamedia Corridor-EAst Constrjction Authorities to see if their local projects were the source of the noises. So far they have denied being the source of the booms. The city reached out to California Institute of Technology which monitors seismic activity but they have no explanation.
