Earthquake

The Loudest Sound Ever Recorded

Sound can kill you: in the morning of August 27, 1883 ranchers on a sheep camp outside Alice springs, Australia, heard a sound like two shots of a riffle. At that very moment, the underneath volcanic island of Krakatoa was blowing itself to bits 2,233 miles away.

It was 10:02am local time when the sound emerged from the island of Krakatoa, and it was ranked the loudest sound ever measured...... and mechanical including the absolute biggest Kabooms ever recorded.

The general consensus is that a loud enough sound could cause an air embolism in the lungs, which then travel to the heart and kills one.

Krakatoa is believed to be the loudest sound produced on surface of the planet -- in human history, that is. It circles the earth four times in every direction and shattered the ears of the sailors, 40 miles away. The Krakatoa volcano erupted with ungodly strength, sending ripples of sound heard thousands of miles away.

Others include: 1-Ton TNT Bomb, 5.0 earthquake, NHRA drafters, Tranguska, and so on.
