A Hugo woman reported hearing a loud boom and seeing a bright flash while walking her dog around 2:15 a.m. Frank Watson, a local meteorologist with the Press, compared the sound to a sonic boom and said that such an occurrence was rare. The meteor is reported to be among the biggest observed worldwide throughout 2018.
