Something went "boom" across at least part of Northeast Mississippi on Monday, but no one knows what it was.
Lee County dispatchers received calls about a loud noise and vibrations on Monday afternoon, but there was no sign of any explosion, earthquake or anything else that could cause such a noise, said Lee County E911 Director Paul Harkins.
Lee County dispatchers received "no more than five or 10 calls," he said, and Itawamba County dispatchers also received calls, he said.
Several fire crews checked the area for signs of smoke or debris, but found nothing.
"This happens every so often. We have a little something like this and we can't figure out what it is," he said.
