Residents Of A Mexican City Fear The Worst After Possible Meteor Explosion
Residents in a Mexican city awoke in terror as reports of a bright light in the sky followed by a thunderous noise lead to fears of the local volcano erupting.
However, many witnesses suggest it was most likely a meteor, which caused windows to shake and a loud explosion like sound to be reported.
One witness reported “There was a light that shone for a couple of seconds like it was daytime and then there was tremendous thunder.” while another stated “We thought it was an earthquake, but it wasn’t. We were truly terrified.”
Officials said Popocatepetl volcano had not stirred and no earthquake had registered but the local Astronomic Society tweeted that the space rock probably burned up in the atmosphere as no impact was detected.
