Has anyone mentioned Krakatoa?
It is reported to have been heard thousands of miles away.
*"The third explosion has been reported as the loudest sound heard in
*"The force of the eruption created the loudest noise ever recorded: it was
heard 4,653km away on Rodriguez Island in the Indian Ocean and some 4,800km
away in Alice Springs; shock waves travelled around the world seven times;
and the force of the blast was some 10,000 times greater than that of the
hydrogen bomb dropped on Hiroshima."*
But I don't think it was *RECORDED* in 1883.
