Loud Explosion Felt Across Bossier-Webster Parishes
Residents all across Northwest Louisiana could feel and hear a loud explosion that rocked the area just before 11:30 last night. Investigators from throughout the region are trying to figure out what it was. The hardest hit area is near Dixie Inn. Deputies from the Webster Parish Sheriff's office are hearing reports that it may have been a meteorite. Several residents say they did see something fall from the sky shortly before the explosion. Barksdale investigators have been called in to check out the incident. Helicopters will be going up today to try to find out more information from the sky. They will check out the area along I-20 and Highway 80.
