About 40 minutes ago I was lying in bed watching tv. All of the sudden I heard a huge explosion and jumped up to ask my husband if he heard it. Of
course he did , and asked where my car was, I guess he thought someone had hit it.
We both went outside and didn't see anything. Right then my mom called to ask what that was and to see if we were ok. She lives fairly close. I asked
on Facebook if anyone heard it, and several people had. Some even about 2 miles away across the river said it sounded like it was right outside.
Some closer ( like my mom) said the same thing , it sounded like it was right outside. Some said it sounded like a transformer blowing , but it was
much much louder, it shook the house. And there is no electricity out anywhere. The cops and city drove around checked the transformers and said they
seem fine. They do not know what the boom was.
I thought someone's house exploded or a bomb went off. There are no reports of anything like that.
Neighbors were woken up, and gathering in the street asking each other about it. The police received 25 calls about it. Others said they felt houses
shake too. So I guess it could have been a sonic boom, but those seem more rare now days. I think it was from the sky... so what else can make booms
like that ? Meteors?
I guess wanted to make a record of this somehow in case it was something besides a sonic boom. What that may be .. who knows
