Eyewitness To explosion in Indianapolis was on the Scene In Minutes–Sonic Boom Heard–Eyewitness stated ‘something fell from Sky
Nov 12, 2012
On Saturday night I sat in my house when around 11 pm I experienced an explosion so loud that I ran up to the second floor to check on my family members that were in bed. The ground shook and I was sure that my house had sustained some kind of damage.
It turns out that I am just over four miles in a straight line from the explosion near Sherman and Stop 11. I didnt even put on my uniform as I climbed in my crusier to go to the scene. What I saw was total devistation to four houses and secondary damage to surounding houses. Some houses moved 3 feet off of their foundation!
Initial speculation was that it was a gas explosion. The fire side stated that it didnt look like the normal gas explosion where a house is lifted up and set back down. This had a massive debris field that looks much more like a bomb. The blast was higher than a normal gas explosion. The tree limbs were sheared off at an upward trajectory, not straight out from the house that exploded.
We have had a police presence since Saturday. Today NTSB Haz Mat members arrived at the scene. WTF, for a gas leak? I am begining to subscribe to the notion that something fell from the sky. A couple that lives north of us was outside and said that they heard a sonic boom.
Please check with your sources on this and let me know if you are hearing anything.
