Lots of people have been hearing cracks and booms.
Storm Team 10’s Kevin Orpurt shares his thoughts on what he thinks may be causing them.
The ground has frozen to a depth of about 18 inches, and since the ground is frozen so deeply, water in the ground freezes and then expands with force.
That is what creates a popping sound.
Kevin recently talked with a guy whose grandpa told him that the sap in trees can also freeze.
That can create a snapping or cracking noise.
If you’ve been hearing the noises, chances are, it’s because the weather has been so cold.
