METEORITE OR COMET HIT HERE CUMBERLAND, MARYLAND ...not a sonic boom!

Here is an update below to my first published report of this event. So I simply thought I would update it on this day 04-23-2012

This shook my home massively in Cumberland.


No one else in this area that I have spoken to felt this. 

Many folks saw it and reported it, but I believe, so far, that myself and my fiance were the only people who felt it, as it shook our home and woke us up and we looked at the clock and are certain this is what it was.

We also often look online at cumberlandchat.com as well as at the times-news.com and the WCBC websites, where we often find breaking news, sometimes very quickly and other times in short fashion.

I wanted to report this because it was an odd experience the way the house shook so much.

We had recently had an earthquake on the East coast as well as lightning that hit and shook the home just a few days before as well, and in 10+ years the house had never shaken once.

I have looked in the local area on walks since then for any tree damage or any type of damage or holes, as we hike often when I am well, and thus far I have seen no evidence of a meteor.

I do not believe it was a sonic boom because no one else reported hearing anything, but rather, just seeing the sky light up.

‘Meteorite’ generates early morning 911 queries

CUMBERLAND — Numerous 911 calls in Allegany and Mineral counties around 4:22 a.m. Tuesday apparently stemmed from a “meteorite passing through the area,” according to Roger Bennett, acting director of Allegany County’s 911 center.

“We checked camera footage from schools at Mount Savage, Westmar, Oldtown, Westernport and other locations that showed a flash of light that brightened the whole sky,” said Bennett, who reviewed the video footage. He said no objects were visible in any of the videos.

The Allegany County 911 center received about a dozen calls inquiring about the sound of an explosion.

Calls were also reportedly made to the Mineral County 911 center from the Keyser area. However, apparently no calls were made at that time to emergency centers in Garrett, Washington, Bedford and Fayette counties among other locations.

A check of various agencies including the Federal Aviation Administration, Maryland Emergency Management Administration and the Maryland Institute of Emergency Medical Systems Services Statewide Communications Systems produced no information relative to the local 911 calls, according to Bennett.

Bennett also said some unofficial information about the possible meteorite sighting was posted on some websites.
