Possible sonic boom shakes KOMU viewers across mid-Missouri
COLUMBIA - 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.
