“Loud Boom” Believed To Be The Result Of Meteor Shower

Sonora, Ca — Representatives with the Sonora Police Department and both the Tuolumne and Calaveras County Sheriff´s Departments say they fielded numerous calls early this morning in regards to a “loud boom,” and “structures shaking.”

According to a Sonora Police Department report, there were several calls from residents who reported seeing “a blue light,” just before the “loud boom.” The incident reportedly occurred at 12:09am. The Police Department notes that it also received a call from a resident in Tuolumne, in which a female reported seeing what she thought was fireworks, and then something spiraling over her house.

Early indication from the law enforcement agencies is that the loud boom was somehow the result of a meteor shower.
