What was that loud boom?

The Clinton Fire Department has received several calls from concerned citizens wondering what caused the loud boom approximately 30 minutes ago that shook many homes in Clinton. We have received reports of the boom heard and felt in Benton and St. Clair counties as well.

At this time, we are unaware of what caused the boom but can confirm that it was not caused by anything inside the city limits of Clinton. We do not want to speculate on a cause and will announce on our page as soon as we are aware of the cause.
Local and County officials are currently investigating the cause. Stay tuned for more information as we receive it.
