Breaking News - Kenya Bolide Meteor With Loud Boom 27FEB2014 - SONICS!

UPDATE- Sonic reports by witnesses put the most likely area for the fall to have occurred near the areas of Eldama Ravine, Kenya and Kampi Ya Moto, Nakuru, Kenya; the more likely of the two being  nearest the Eldama Ravine, Kenya  area.  With the sonic report also at Ronga it is not impossible that there was more than one body traveling in this event or multiple breakups of the same body.
