At approximately 0630 local time (1230 UTC) on 25 December 2020, a recreational vehicle exploded on Second Avenue near Commerce Street in downtown Nashville, Tennessee, causing extensive damage to at least 41 buildings in the area. The blast, which occurred outside a building that belongs to the AT&T telecommunications firm, caused widespread internet and telephone disruptions in Tennessee and the nearby states of Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia and Kentucky. The firm stated that 96% of its wireless services, 60% of business services and 86% of consumer broadband and entertainment services were restored as of late on 27 December. Due to the telecommunications disruptions, the Federal Aviation Administration temporarily halted outbound flights from Nashville International Airport (KBNA/BNA) at approximately 1430 local time on 25 December; most flights resumed shortly before 1800 local time. Three people suffered injuries in the blast and were taken to hospitals. Authorities have identified a 63-year-old local man, who was killed in the blast, as the sole suspect. Investigation to determine a possible motive for the bombing remains underway.
