EASTOVER, SC (WIS) -

A spokesperson for the McCrady National Guard Training Center in Eastover says they are behind the mysterious explosions that have shaken the Midlands over the past two days.

That spokesperson says the training center is "expending ordnance" and has been doing it since Wednesday. That process includes demolishing and detonating certain items.

Viewers from Cassatt, St. Matthews, Camden, Hartsville, Dalzell, and all over the Midlands have inundated the WIS news room with calls about the mysterious explosions.

Law enforcement officials say they received several phone calls and messages about the issue in the past several hours.

The base's spokesperson apologized for the issue, and said they should complete the process by 4 p.m. Thursday.
