Why are they saying that the explosion at Camp Minden was a controlled explosion to get rid of a bunker? Do you normally do a controlled explosion with a train around?
Coming back to the present; over the past few days, several reports of meteorite/comet fragment sightings and impacts across the globe have been registered. However, I want to look at one specific event that occurred two days ago on Monday 15th October.
On that night, people across Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi reported seeing bright flashes in the sky and fireball trails. And in the Shreveport area of NW Louisiana, many residents also heard loud ‘booms’ that shook houses to their foundations and broke many windows in the town of Minden. Here are the words of Amy Mealey who lives just a few miles from Camp Minden:
“I honestly thought we were being bombed,” Mealey said of the explosion at an Explo Systems bunker, also known as an igloo, in Webster Parish. “It was the scariest thing I’ve ever been through.”
Mealey was checking some last-minute emails before going to bed when she felt an odd feeling in the pit of her stomach — like a rolling thunder in the distance. “It was getting closer and closer, and I felt everything moving with me,” the mother of two said. “I could literally feel it moving toward me.”
The explosion shook her house, shattering a lead window and blowing out its frame.
And some excerpts from Facebook postings of residents of Minden:
Elaina McKissack Pepper: “… No damage but me and Zeb both got up and started checking on the kids because we were sure something was very wrong. After checking outside, Zeb gave up. It shook our whole house kind of like an earthquake.”
Lela Bryan Lemoine: “In Minden, felt like our house was hit by something. Didn’t really hear anything though. But scared the heck out of us!”
Angela Bogues Davis: “We live on Fort Ave. I was upstairs and our house shook and swayed.”
Judy Savell Jackson: “… I heard and felt it at my house, but so did everyone else in Minden and surrounding areas!”
Mickie Howard Young: “I felt the explosion here in S. Sibley, I thought it was the pipeline at first. Shook the entire house, but we have no damage. Just a heart that nearly jumped out of my chest.”
From Amy in Princeton, Louisiana: “Extremely loud boom like an explosion, caused house to shake for several seconds.”
From Donna in Benton, Louisiana: “Large explosion then felt like a whoosh of pressure through house and house shaking.”
Given the significant number of similar reports over the past few years, this event would have been just one more meteorite/comet fragment event, if it weren’t for the perplexing official response.
Sheriff Flip Flops
When dozens of people called the Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office, as well as to the KSLA News 12 newsroom, to report seeing flashes of light in the sky and hearing loud booms that shook houses, the sheriff’s office initially stated that there was a “possibility that a meteor did hit the ground” in the area. The following morning however, Webster Parish Sheriff, Gary Sexton, claimed that the mystery had been solved, that ‘hazmat experts’ told him that what people had actually seen and heard was an underground bunker containing explosives that blew up late Monday night at Camp Minden. Not only was there nothing to see here, but the explosion“worked exactly as it was designed to do.”
Sheriff Sexton described the bunker, in the “L-1 area,” as an “igloo,” constructed of concrete that was built in the 50s and designed to send any blast up instead of out to lessen the shock wave impact. Given that the bunker in question belongs to a company called Explo Systems Inc., it seems plausible that the information about the ‘bunker explosion’ came from this corporation. Strangely enough, however, a news conference to have been held by officials from Explo, scheduled for Wednesday morning, was canceled at the last minute, with no explanation given.
The first problem with the “munition dump explosion” answer is a problem of coincidence.
What are the odds that, at around the same time as people across three states (Mississippi, Texas and Louisiana, and hundreds of miles apart) were seeing what was clearly a meteorite/comet fragment burning up in the lower earth atmosphere, a munitions dump would explode? More to the point, if a munitions dump did explode, what are the odds that a meteorite/comet fragment, that many eyewitnesses believe hit the ground in the area, would be in no way connected to the explosion?
The second problem is one of evidence.
At first light on Tuesday morning, the good people at KSLA news boarded their chopper and flew over the Louisiana army ammunition plant. Here is what they filmed:
