Hernando de Soto bridge at Memphis
News stations in Memphis are reporting
that the FBI
field office there has alerted local law enforcement about an anonymous threat to blow up a bridge
over the Mississippi River. The western end of the 19,535-foot double arch bridge is in West Memphis.
According to an FBI spokesman
who talked to WMC News in Memphis: "There is no actionable intelligence at this point. The FBI takes any information like this seriously, and we insure that we share it immediately with our local and state law enforcement partners."
Our original reports described this as the I-40 bridge. Memphis media are saying it's the I-55 bridge.
