Update of incident in Kalinago Territory

SAT TV reported news of an alleged ball of fire seen falling into the ocean off the coast of Salybia in what residents feared to have been a plane crash.
Concerned onlookers flocked to the site that was in the area of the Kalinago Barana Aute to offer aid if possible with some brave persons taking their boats out to search for debris from the alleged crash.

When SAT TV arrived on the scene, nothing had surfaced from the sea searches and there was no evidence of the alleged crash with security guards at the Kalinago Barana Aute reporting to have neither seen nor heard any such occurrence.

However, despite the hub bub of activity in the Kalinago Territory last night authorities have announced that there was no loss of official air activity reported by the people involved in air traffic control operations at airports in Dominica and neighboring islands.

In addition the Dominica Airport and Sea Port Authority has announced that searches in the area the incident was said to occur has presented no debris or evidence that any suspicious events took place there.
There are some suggestions that the incident was not a plane crash as initially suggested but a waterspout which is a rotating column of water and spray formed by a whirlwind occurring over the sea or other body of water.
