11 military explosions prompt La. evacuations, injures man in Al.

Posted on October 16, 2012


At least eleven military explosions have occurred Monday and Tuesday, a minimum of ten large-caliber ammunition ground-rattling explosions from a Louisiana Military Department bomb recycling plant in the northwestern Louisiana forcing evacuations of at least 600 students, over 400 prisoners and 800 residents of Doyline, and one military explosion injuring a man in Alabama.

“itizens were shaken out of bed and windows were shattered during the late night hours Oct. 15,” according to Accuweather.

Jesse Ferrell with Accuweather pulled 3D radar images from GRLevelX software this morning of the “mystery object.”

The blast and resulting fire at the underground Explo Systems site at Camp Minden resulted in authorities asking residents of the eastern section of Doyline to leave the area, according to AP.

After the initial blast, more explosions followed about every 10 minutes as the fire was allowed to burn, AP says.

The units where the explosions reportedly cam from are self-contained, partially underground and designed to send any blast upward and not outward to minimalize damage.
