    Public Notice (Ground Vibrations) – 1/28/16 at 2:25 p.m. – The Lacey Township Police Department is currently looking into unexplained ground vibrations occurring through the township. Thus far, it has been determined that the same vibrations are being reported throughout Ocean County and are not specific to our town. Upon identifying the source or cause of the vibrations, the public will be advised without delay.

    UPDATE: The U.S. Geological Service has indicated that earlier reports of earthquake activity are unfounded, and they have revised their assessment and are attributing the vibrations to sonic booms which reportedly occurred over a 90 minute period starting at 1:24 p.m. today. The U.S. Navy is now reporting test flight activity originating out of Maryland that appears to be the cause of the sonic booms.   – Chief David A. Paprota, Ed.D.
