      Sonic boom heard in Southwest Georgia

      Discovery's path was set to fly over parts of Southwest Georgia

      911 Dispatchers logged more than a dozen calls from residents concerned about a loud "boom" that was heard in their neighborhoods. Law enforcement officials claim to have had no incidents with reported "noises" in the area. Water, Gas and Light officials say a transformer blew early Tuesday morning but the noise could only be heard by people in the immediate area.

      Discovery's path was noted as passing south of Columbus, Georgia, putting it near Albany.
