  • ARIZONA - Felt very strong vibration around 2 months ago. Felt it around same time, maybe 10:00pm a few nights in a row. This has become a common occurrence since they installed several Cell Towers here by the major river I live near. Noticed Cell Towers are being installed all along the major rivers here in the city. Felt strong vibration at work too, which now has 5 cell towers surrounding it. All towers installed there within past 2 1/2 years. Facility cracking since towers installation.
