boom above my town

UPDATED: Something went ‘boom’ in the night

A loud boom that shook homes and buildings in Howard and Tipton counties around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday night may have been caused by a meteorological condition.

The boom was apparent from Kokomo’s northside to homes in the city of Tipton.

In reports made to authorities, people told of seeing flare-type lights in the western sky immediately after hearing the noise, leading to the possibility there had been some type of plane crash.

Initial reports brought countless police, fire and rescue units to an area near the intersection of U.S. 31 and 300 North in Tipton County. But, after finding nothing while searching that area, the search began moving west and north back into Howard County.

Units responding included sheriff deputies from Howard and Tipton counties, Kokomo and Tipton city police, Indiana State Police, Howard County Emergency Management Agency and fire departments from Harrison and Taylor townships, Sharpsville and Kempton.

After nearly an hour of searching, however, no debris of any sort had been found. Authorities at Grissom Air Reserve Base and Indianapolis International Airport were contacted, but they told police they had no aircraft missing.

Police believe it is possible that the boom and lights may have been caused by a meteor or other atmospheric disturbance. Immediately after the boom, there was a slight metallic smell in the air in downtown Kokomo.

The same situation occurred approximately the same time Tuesday night in Logansport and northern Cass County, according to the Logansport Pharos-Tribune.

Authorities there called out police and fire departments after a loud boom shook that area and one resident called with the report of seeing a fireball in the sky to the north of Logansport. That search also yielded no results.


crazy.. grissom is hiding something.. people have been on a local site that has a police scanner.. and a pilot from grissom said they normally have pretend dog fites around that location on wednesday nites.. but yet grissom denies it..

oh yah.. fox 59 said it was a jet that crashed into the new Chrysler building that is being built a few miles down the road from me.. the police shot their idea down as soon as it was broad casted lol

our town is crazy.. first theres been a big arguement about a buzz sound thats heard in half of kokomo.. and then we've had a few sonic booms and grissom will never confirm.. and now this

i live next to ft benning army base. home of the 3rd ID, rangers and i believe army sniping school. and now the tank training brigade..... we hear loud booms ALL the time. they're generally a few miles off, cant say that i've ever heard one like the one you're talkin about up close. it'd probably be pretty freaky, esp in the middle of the night
