Residents of Pleasant View and the surrounding area reported hearing a loud ‘boom’ today that was also felt inside homes and businesses.
Reports of these mystery ‘booms’ occur several times each month and so we wanted to get to the bottom of where they are coming from.
Going on the recommendation of several residents, we reached out to a local rock quarry owned by Vulcan Materials located at 3025 Joe Dowlen Rd, Pleasant View, TN 37146 to find out what they know about these ‘booms’.
After talking with one of their employees, we were able to verify that they blasted today and also blast a few times each week as part of their local mining operation.
Have no fear next time you hear a loud ‘boom’, it’s probably not an earthquake.
