Officials at the Shreveport National Weather Service reported an incident involving a flash in the sky followed by broken windows in area homes and people knocked out of their beds. It is presumed that the incident occurred Monday night around 11:40 p.m.west of Dixie Inn in Webster Parish, Louisiana.
The vibrations could be felt as far west as Shreveport.
Area authorities are investigating the source of whatever shook people's homes and businesses. The Webster sheriff's office is entertaining the possibility that it was a meteorite.
There were a large number of reports stating they saw something come down from the sky instead of something blow up.
One woman reported hearing what sounded like debris hit a shop on Bellevue Road in the Dixie Inn area.
If it was a meteorite, that would fall to NASA and the Air Force to investigate.
Thermal-imaging cameras show nothing off Elmo Burton Loop near Dixie Inn but helicopters are expected to be in the area this morning to survey the area along US 80 and Interstate 20.
Reports of shaking came from lake Bistineau, Springhill, Sibley and Barksdale Air Force Base.
The U.S. Geological Survey does not report any earthquakes in the area.
Update: 9:15 AM
Several news outlets are reporting a bunker explosion around the same time as the reported fire in the sky. The underground bunker exploded last night at Camp Minden but was not discovered until this morning. There were many reports of seeing the fireball from as far away as Canton and Dallas, Texas. Maybe a meteorite hit the bunker causing it to exploded? More investigation is needed.
The story is still developing. We will update as we learn more.
