     I checked the reports and the max area covered by the boom reports was only
    about 5mi on a side. Not what is usual for a sonic boom or a meteor or
    satellite sonic boom.
    The weather service said they didn't detect a lighting strike but a big
    front was just entering the area. The exact area of the boom reports also
    had downed trees and downed power lines this morning from the storm.
    Soooo... Draw your own conclusions.
