Cuba, too, reports powerful meteorite explosion

HAVANA (AP) — Cuban official media say the island apparently experienced a phenomenon similar to the meteorite that detonated over Russia this week.

A video posted on news website CubaSi reports that residents of the city of Rodas witnessed a bright light in the sky and a loud explosion that shook windows and walls.

The video contained accounts from startled residents and an expert who said it was most likely a meteorite. One unnamed local said it happened Tuesday night.

There was no report of any damage or injuries such as that seen with the Russia meteorite, which sent out shock waves that hurt some 1,200 people and shattered countless windows.

Rodas is near the central Cuban city of Cienfuegos.

The video posted late Friday on CubaSi said authorities were looking for any meteorite fragments.
