Loud ‘boom’ heard across parts of Alabama

By Jack Phillips

A loud boom was reportedly felt and heard across Alabama on Tuesday afternoon, according to reports.

According to AL.com, Birmingham area law enforcement agencies said they got reports of the boom. The St. Clair County EMA also received reports.

Areas that experienced it include Arab, Oxford, Anniston, Hayden, Kimberly, Center Point, Jasper, and Gardendale, the report stated.

The U.S. Geological Survey said that there’s no sign of an earthquake.

“Reports of a loud sound coming from various parts of the county,” St. Clair County Emergency Management Agency said on Twitter. “We will post information as soon as it becomes available.”

The agency told AL.com that it might be a meteor re-entry.

“Has anyone heard a loud explosion in west Blount County?” Blount County 911 wrote on Twitter. “We’ve received several calls between Spunky Hollow Road and Cannons Crossing. Law enforcement is currently patrolling the area.”

ABC 33/40 meteorologist James Spann wrote on Twitter that the boom was “felt strongly across much of Jefferson, Blount, Walker, Cullman, Talladega, Clay, Winston and St. Clair Counties.” He called it the “Bama Boom.”

NASA hasn’t confirmed whether or not it was a meteor.
