Multiple KOMU viewers across mid-Missouri reported feeling the effects of an explosion Wednesday.

Reports came in from areas including Cole, Moniteau and Morgan counties. A viewer said the explosion shook windows in California and Fortuna.

Capt. John Wheeler of the Cole County Sheriff's Department said he received several calls from people reporting the explosion as a sonic boom.

Wheeler said the explosion could have been from a meteor, but the best explanation would be a sonic boom from an airplane, based on calls the sheriff's department received.


Comment: With such limited information it is hard determine what might be the source of these explosions or booms. They might be a result of the increase in fireballs exploding in our atmosphere or a sign of some earth changes occuring.
