CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The 911 calls have been released from a mystery boom that shook homes in the Montgomery County area.
911 operator: “911 what’s your emergency? Caller: It’s no emergency but we’re in the bed and something all at once sounded like a bomb went off over here. People were in a frenzy because they thought there had been an explosion in Clarksville.
Police said Fort Campbell was closed for the holiday weekend, so it was not a military exercise to their knowledge.
Some 911 callers said they were scared.
Caller: “Haven’t seen anything, but we live in a pretty good size house, and it was just like a big blast of pressure up against the house."
Law enforcement searched the area for hours but didn't find anything. There were no injuries or property damage reported.
