Duration: 10 minutes
we were inside our house and heard several loud jet like sounds that would stop and then start up agan (exactly like the noises posted on 8/11/2004 in cranston). the sounds are unexplained. our surburan western cranston neighborhood is fairly large and mostly quiet at night. it was an unusually warm night for november and also I noticed it was extremely misty and foggy when I went outside to check it out. I also heard many neighbors' dogs barking and my cat was checking it out in the window, too.

This is an explination in regaurds to the reports filed on 8/11/04 and 11/8/05 in cranston RI. The jet sounds heard were comming from the Florida Power and Lighting Power Plant located on Shun Pike in Johnston RI. On both nights posted the power plant experienced a large build up of steam pressure that had to be vented off. As steam passes through the relief valves it creates a loud jet engine like sound that can be heard many miles away.
