here's some new input....I'm in mckinney texas....two hours or more east of there....I saw the flash....it was dim but I trade all night and walk out back constantly.
Iwas looking down at that time and saw an instant flash....like a transformer or an atomic flash.....like someone taking a flash picture. the sky was clear it went in a pop....I was looking down and had an ambient flash, as if I had been looking up, I wouldn't have noticed. I could just marginally sense it....I knew something big happened.
i'm 25 miles north of dallas....same latt.

The EQ reporting always falls in line with what their told. Period. If they wanna make it go away, it goes away, and the eyewitness proles, no matter how many there are, can just eat it. In fact, they may be mentally unsound, and in need of an evaluation. Mark my words. I listened to the 'debate' tonight.

'strong measures' was the method our little 'world citizen' described.

I believe something important happened, and that someone is extremely nervous that it will be figured out, and they are busy concocting a totally un-believable story to pass for an "official story".

I think you mean West of there. Texas is west of Louisiana.

In case some others might get confused...

I am just leaving this there..



Susie Cobb Young: absolutely nothing was going on at Camp Minden, and I don't believe it was debris because my nephew posted 15 to 20 minutes before we heard and felt the action that he just saw something much larger than any shooting star he had ever seen shooting through the sky.... and he lives in Winnfield

I've seen media reports of events that were a lot closer to some kind of critical mass than this. Its targeting what Riddle?

Sexton describes the bunker, in the "L-1 area," as an "igloo," constructed of concrete. He says they were built in the 50s. The underground bunkers are designed to send any blast up instead of out to lessen the shock wave impact. No one was injured.

The force of the explosion was felt across a wide area just before 11:40 p.m. Monday, with reports of people feeling the blast from Minden to Shreveport and well beyond. The explosion site was discovered right at sun-up.

The National Weather Service later issued a statement describing radar imagery showing a debris/smoke plume right around 11:30 p.m. approximately one and one half miles southwest of Dixie Inn, which is where the Camp Minden Louisiana Army Ammunition Plant is located. The NWS says the debris plume drifted northwest at about 10 miles per hour and dissipated after about 30 minutes.

Link KSLA


It seems to make sense other than the radar capturing a plume at 11:30 but the blast is felt just before 11:40...

ETA: Did see another source saying the explosion was 11:28 - different reports as usual.

Couple of things I found surfing around this morning.

One is a graphic of the layout of the camp.
From shreveporttimes.com
They are stating that the explosion happened in the L1 area.

Now here's my thing about that. Camp Minden is home to a Louisiana Youth ChalleNGe Program which is like a boot camp for "at-risk" kids. According to their website a class began in August and is a 5 month residential program (1st phase, 2nd phase is 12 months). So there had to be hundreds of people there. How in the hell did they not know that the explosion happened on site if windows where blown out 10's of miles away.

----------------

Second, I found the ariel footage on youtube so I'll embed for easier viewing. Note on the video, the reporter does say a train was "driving by" when the explosion happened. (the channel has several of the news vids uploaded)


------------------

One more thing, I've read this on several news sites:

Sheriff Gary Sexton said some home video surveillance cameras as far as 25 miles
away captured the sound of the explosion and glow in the sky.

clarionledger.com

The only surveillance video I have seen is from a Buzz Buy and it is all interior shots.


This store is apparently located at the main intersection of Dixie Inn.


Has anyone found a video with the sound & glow?

If there was an explosion that produce a 7,000 feet cloud.
I'm 99.9999 % sure most of the tree around the spot would be laying on the ground for a few 100 of feet all around.

Where's the crater from this "meteor" hit? Where's the hole from this explosion?

Yeah that girl, Tarah Marissa Thomas was all over the facebook comments telling everyone they were stupid for thinking it was anything aside from a bunker explosion. Telling them to use a little common sense but her stories dont even match up with the time frame of this. Damn hypocrite.

Hi all, I searched online for the place of explosions to see if I can found something. I picked up radar image, Google Maps images and flashearth.com images. Seems something blew up at 32.569673,-93.371111 from flashearth.com images.

Flashearth.com uses Bing Maps, taken by NASA and seems to be daily updated.

I made an overlapped image of radar, maps and flashearth.com at this link:

Exactly. If this was an explosion from the ground or underground it would have gone upwards (not quite sure it would have gone 7000ft either) but that picture looks as if something has hit the deck and gone across and through the trees. It even looks like there are two parallel lines running through the area as if something has skidded maybe. Weird.

Also someone mentioned that this is an area for kids, like a camp program. Well maybe that would explain why kids were evacuated from a school at 11:30pm that we couldn't figure out earlier.

The part about the kids being evacuated was bad reporting. That evacuation happened back in 2006 when they has another explosion at this site. At that time it was reported that more than a 1,000 had to be evacuated. Link to 2006 story

Still wondering how none of those people figured out a bunker exploded in their back yard Monday night.

I dont know why FOX said anything about the kids or prisoners, they got that information straight from a 2006 KSLA article. In 2006 there was a black powder explosion at Camp Minden on a Friday and 600 kids were evacuated from 2 schools and over 400 prisoners were evacuated as well...

Well well well... I can't find that article on Google now. But luckily I posted that link earlier in this thread. It will be a KSLA link, but after 6 years it's suddenly gone and news stations are using it as part of their story.
