Alert: Mysterious boom in Louisiana caused by military explosion, not meteorite

Pakalert Press  The ‘contained’ explosion at Camp Minden rattled locals but no injuries were reported.

The blast broke widows and left some wondering whether a meteorite had struck the area.

A bunker at a northern Louisiana military compound exploded late Monday, briefly prompting speculation that the loud boom and shaking ground had been caused by meteorite .

Webster Parish officials confirmed Tuesday that the mysterious incident was a “contained” explosion at Camp Minden, a north Louisiana National Guard training site.

“The bunker did exactly what it was designed to do,” said Webster Parish Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Bobby Igo, Jr. “There were no injuries – nobody hurt. We don’t know the cause at this point,” he told the Minden Press-Herald.

Residents had been scrambling to figure out what caused the massive boom, which broke windows and rattled homes and businesses around 11:30 pm CST. The blast shook a five mile area from Minden to Dixie Inn, about 30 miles from Shreveport.

Witnesses also reported seeing a flash of light.

The Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office confirms an underground bunker exploded late last night at Camp Minden. There are no reports of any injuries or deaths.

The U.S. Geological Survey had no reports of earthquakes in the area and natural gas plants in the region said they had not suffered any explosions.

Some local officials guessed the incident could have been caused by a meteorite, noting that the Earth is currently being peppered by a meteor shower spawned by the famous Halley’s Comet.

The explosion site was discovered right at sunrise.

But a NASA official told the Daily News the space agency was doubtful a meteorite caused the damage and did not expect to investigate.

“They hit everywhere, all the time,” NASA spokesman Steve Cole said of meteorites.

Finally, by Tuesday morning, Camp Minden confirmed they had been the source of the blast, which is still under investigation.  The bunker belongs to a company called Explo, officials said. (NYdaily)

  1. Once again, something that should be all over the news is not even mentioned in the MSM. So what else is new?

    I guess this was the infamous, “Operation Assumption” that they were talking about. Nice. What exactly were they trying to accomplish? Blowing a few windows from underground? Is this how they are going to trick the people into making them believe that these things are earthquakes in the future? How pathetic.

    I feel like they are doing the Manhattan Project all over again here. The countries are bankrupt and the elite need something to quickly eliminate Syria and Iran and settle their control in the Middle East, so they need to create and experiment on their new Hiroshima bomb type weapon for this World War, since they gotta have one for every World War. World War I they had subs and planes. World War II they had Nuclear Bombs. World War III is anyone’s guess. HAARP? Terminators? Drones? Ultra EMP? Ultra Computer virus?

    1. “Blowing a few windows from underground?”

      It’s a conspiracy, I tell ya.

      They’re in league with the glass manufacturers’. lol

  2. I was kinda hoping the good guys blew up the bad guys bunker with all their ammo inside. Sure hope it wasn’t the other way around. Or maybe its just another dry run. Who the hell knows any more.
