Scripps affiliate WXYZ in Detroit is receiving many news tips about a bright flash of light and loud noise that has been heard throughout southeast Michigan.
Reports are coming in from Ypsilanti Township to Clarkston to Grosse Isle.
At this point, it cannot be determined what caused it. However, the National Weather Service has issued a tweet saying it was a meteor.
Some people have posted videos to YouTube.

Jeez, just saw a big flash and then a huge boom. Meteor over SE Michigan.
