[Ed. – This one’s a bit different from our previous series.  Besides being more than a boom — it involved the sound of an explosion, and numerous reports of the ground shaking – this event is in September, rather than December through March, which is when these have more typically occurred.  Weird, as always.  Start here for a walk back in time through our awesome collection of mystery booms.]

Authorities in Tennessee spent hours searching for the source of what residents reported as a “loud explosion” and shaking ground.

In a Facebook post, the Clarksville Police Department wrote on Sunday that its 911 dispatch had received numerous calls at around 9:50 p.m. local time on Saturday regarding the “loud explosion” and that several individuals had also said they had felt the “ground shake.”

“The sound was heard across many parts of Montgomery County but there have been no reports of any injuries or property damage. The Clarksville Police Department, Fire Department, Montgomery County Sheriffs Office and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) searched for a couple of hours but were unable to locate the source.,” the department wrote.
