NASA says a meteorite is likely to blame for a loud boom and ground shake felt across several West Virginia counties.

911 centers in Boone, Lincoln, and Logan counties all received calls from people shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday.

Some of the callers described the incident as a large boom that shook the foundations of their homes.

NASA says a meteorite about the size of a softball entered the atmosphere over West Virginia before landing in Tennessee.
