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.
