JONESBORO, AR --Something shook Region 8 and its residents last night about 10 o'clock.
First there were bright flashes of light in the sky and streaks of colors from blue to yellow painted the horizon. Approximately five minutes later a "boom," as it has been described even shook some homes. A short time later a field was spotted burning near Sedgwick, in eastern Lawrence County, but it is not beleived to have been related to the incident.
While some people may may not have noticed, there is no doubt that it happened. The KAIT newsroom received hundreds of calls from all across Region 8. Calls came from as far south as Brinkley, and as far west and north as West Plains, Missouri.
