(translated to English) COCHABAMBA | At least four meteorites fell last weekend in three communities in the municipality of Aiquile, distant 195 kilometers from the city of Cochabamba, said the mayor of that region, Luis Lopez. "We have concluded that meteorites have fallen here in Aiquile, in the communities of Panama, Villa Granado and Tabla Mayu ... They are stones that have special characteristics," he told ABI. The incident took place around 6:00 pm on Sunday and the impact of the meteorites caused strong detonations that caught the attention of dozens of community members. The mayor of Aiquile broadcast images and a video of the find. The people thought it was a plane or an earthquake, because of the loud sound of the explosion, the authority explained. "It was very loud and quite prolonged, we even thought it was a strange earthquake or a ray because it was raining ... Fortunately, we did not have any injuries," he said. A commission was transferred to the area to analyze the event and prepare a report. Meanwhile the head of the Risk Management Unit, Oscar Soriano, said that the Governor of Cochabamba will seek the help of university experts and other institutions to prepare the collection and analysis of rocks. "We have to see first what risks exist for human health and if we have to generate a contingency plan for this issue, because it is not just to approach and handle one of these issues," he said. The official established that a retinue formed by the specialists who are contacted will be moved to the impact zone of the meteorites in the next few hours. Condition: New
