A massive explosion-like sound had people on their feet in South Kashmir districts of Pulwama and Shopian on Saturday afternoon.
Speaking to The Kashmir Radar, a local from Pulwana township said that the walls of their house shook vigorously creating panic in the entire household.
A sonic boom is a sound associated with shock waves created when an object travels through the air faster than the speed of sound. Sonic booms generate enormous amounts of sound energy, sounding similar to an explosion or a thunderclap to the human ear. The crack of a supersonic bullet passing overhead or the crack of a bullwhip are examples of a sonic boom in miniature.
