Its obvious that something fell from a great height but i don't think its from space. (but i could be wrong).
Despite what we see in the movies it is a surprising fact that meteorites are not burning, or even hot when they land upon the Earth. The glowing fireballs we see in the night sky are caused by atmospheric pressure and friction. Meteors stop ablating (burning) approximately seven miles above our planet's surface, then fall in what is known as "dark flight," according to the normal pull of gravity. It is very cold at an altitude of seven miles, so meteorites cool quickly as they plummet towards the Earth. There has never been a documented case of a burning, or even hot, meteorite landing upon the Earth. If you witnessed a burning object hit the ground it may have been a damaged aircraft, fireworks, UFO, or other unknown object.

so they never mentioned when this happened. So when did this happen? sounds like everyone had a chance to test, so has it been a while? On valentines day, many people witnessed a daytime meteor heading towards New Jersey. Did this happen around that time? Thanks news for the critical details.. worthless.

surely some one from the public must have seen what ever it was that made that hole, before the authorities showed up.
