Fighter jets produce Sonic Boom in Seattle.

India, Aug. 18 -- Seattle was shaken with a strange sound that rumbled through the city's buildings. This sound was a sonic boom, but since it came during Obama's visit to Seattle many people were alarmed and poured to Twitter to talk about it.

Well, according to information provided by the FFA the sonic boom in Seattle was produced by two fighter jets dispatched from Portland after it was discovered a small airplane had trespassed the presidential airspace (within 8 miles of Air Force One)

It was later known the aircraft was a small plane, and by the time the jet fighters were scrambled, it had already landed at Kenmore Air Harbor. The pilot of the airplane has been questioned regarding this incident by the Secret Service. They seems to have concluded this was nothing but a mistake.

Family of the pilot detailed that he and a woman were returning from a trip to Lake Chelan and didn't know there were restrictions in place for the presidential visit.

The sonic boom triggered a flood of 911 calls, this caused the lines to collapse in some areas of Pierce County.
