'Unknown phenomenon' reported in Tennessee

Authorities in Tennessee were left scratching their heads at the weekend after reports of a mysterious explosion.
The alarm was raised on Saturday evening when a number of local residents called up the Clarksville Police Department's 911 Dispatch Center to report hearing a loud, unidentified explosion "across many parts of Montgomery County."

The force of the blast was so great that in some areas people reported feeling the ground shake.
The source of such an event should have been relatively easy to track down, however the mystery only deepened when neither the Clarksville Fire Department nor the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office were able to determine what had caused the explosion or where it had taken place.

To further add to the mystery, there were no reports of damage or injuries anywhere in the area.

Investigations into the incident remain ongoing.

The area where this occurred is located in the New Madrid earthquake zone and its possible the following could account for the sounds and shaking experienced. There were loud sounds like explosions before the New Madrid earthquakes of 1811 and 1812. Could this mean another event may occur in the near future, let's hope not. Midwestern U.S. There are accounts of "artillery"-like sounds that were said to have occurred before or during the New Madrid earthquakes of 1811-1812 (M 7.4-7.9). High-frequency vibrations from the shallow earthquake generate the booming sound; when earthquakes are deeper,... [More]

I really hope I am wrong, because the last Earthquake on the New Madrid fault zone was the one of, if not the worst Quake in US History I mean it lasted from 1811 - 1812. The Mississippi River flowed backward for a few hours, can you imagine that, or an Earthquake lasted for almost two Months. So not only could there be an earthquake, but also a Volcanic eruption along with an earthquake I dont think it could get any worst than that. ""The epicenters of the earthquakes were located in an area that at the time was at the distant western edge of the American frontier, only sparsely settled by Eu... [More]
