Montana Governor Greg Gianforte reports that he was recently told about a reported explosion that happened in Billings, Montana, tonight.
The governor assures that they are “monitoring the situation.”
On Friday night, an explosion was reported in the sky over Billings, Montana.
Footage captures a plume of smoke in the area where the balloon was last seen.
Ok, so here’s what I just caught I few minutes ago out my window. I saw a jet go by so fast and then explosion in the sky. Holy crap! Billings MT. pic.twitter.com/swr8ERC6pf — Dolly Moore (@MMtTreasures) February 4, 2023
BREAKING: Billings, Montana @MMtTreasures just captured video moments after seeing a jet “go by so fast and then an explosion in the sky.” Was it the #ChinaBalloon? Nothing from the @PentagonPresSec or if the balloon was still in the area today. pic.twitter.com/WfckzMRGcI— Heidi Hatch KUTV (@tvheidihatch) February 4, 2023
It seems like something may be going down.
Could this be the beginning of escalation on U.S. soil?
The military sent out helicopter units in Montana this evening.
