West Knox ‘rumblings’ still a mystery


No answers have been forthcoming for residents of an area of West Knox County where residents say they were awakened by a rumbling early Monday.

“It was a weird thing,” Peter Smith, a visitor to Knoxville, said. “I was staying with some friends and I woke up early this morning when a loud rumbling noise went off. It felt like the ground was shaking.”

Smith was visiting friends at Admiral’s Landing subdivision, off Northshore Drive.

As of press time, no official explanation had been given for the event and local officials were at a loss for an explanation.

“We responded to several calls early this morning,” Drew Reeves, Knox County Sheriff’s Office spokesman, said. “Officers were on the scene for forty-five minutes and looked around, but they didn’t find anything.”

Rural Metro Fire Department Chief Jerry Harnish said his department didn’t have any calls to the area.

Knox County Utility Board spokesperson Randy O’Neil said the company didn’t have anything in their system about issues or defects in the area.

“We didn’t have any calls to the area,” he said. “There’s nothing in our system about it.”

Lt. Johnny Leatherwood of the Blount County Fire Department said they didn’t have any issues or events across the water that perhaps may have been transferred through the waterways.

“We didn’t respond to any calls,” he said.
