As you were writing this, channel 3 had the story running on the local news and 5 minutes later it was on the online version of nice-matin.

Thanks for that info. We were about to set off for the airport, which is why I put up this post in case it was something serious that might have made us late for our plane.

Yeah - I think it was a sonic boom. I saw a high flying jet going a lot faster than the Easyjet ones usually do. Nearly blew my front door in.

I live in Opio. I assumed it was blasting at the quarry....but our windows certainly shook.
