The mysterious “booms’ heard around the country have reached the small town of Maryville, Tennessee. Police say loud booms were reported by dozens of residents throughout the Sandy Springs and Pearson Springs area on July 30, 2018. The booms occurred around 9:30 PM.
The U.S. Geological Survey detected no earthquakes in the area and there were no unusual weather patterns at the time. It is worth noting, however, that Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is only 30 miles northwest of Maryville. ORNL specializes in secret government research projects relating to energy and national security.
