Earth shaking in Copper?

Over the past year there have been many reports of the "earth shaking" or the feeling of "large explosives" going off in Copperopolis.

Reports of pools sloshing, windows shaking, floors reverberating, have been documented and verified.

However, upon checking with the building department asking for explosive permit documents, talking with George Reed, checking seismic activity, etc, there remains no answer.

These events have been felt from Circle XX to the end of Little John, Poker Flat to Reeds Turnpike.

Do any residents of Copperopolis know, or have an idea, what may be causing these earth shaking events?

The most recent occurrence was at 7:25 am 3-6-14.
