not sure i agree with everything he says in the video.
BUT it is great that so many people are questioning this event
and trying to figure it out!

I think he's getting his directions mixed up. The bunker site is nearest the train and the scorched site is away from the train. Oh well. I'd sure love to know what happened here. I still don't think it was anything aerial, however, I don't have a better explanation either, sooo hmmm.

But what about all of the eyewitness accounts of seeing a fireball travelling West to East directly before the event?

Local media has almost completely scrubbed those accounts...

Ok so I have been following this since it happened and read every post on here. First off I live in DeSoto Parish Louisiana which is roughly about an hour to an hour and a half away from Webster Parish where this happened. I don't believe this is what they are telling us that it is. Something happened weather it be a meteor, missile, or even the fact that someone messed up out there big time and they are covering their behinds so as not to look bad or get sued. Either way I am one of the many that is not buying the story being told to us in this part of the state. That being said on the night that this happened it was clear outside, no fog like that which has been reported as the reason nothing was discovered that night. I do know that there is a lot of drilling going on in this area right now along with that there have been explosions as well as a few months ago an earthquake that woke me up in the middle of the night. This could be a contributing factor to what happened, though I seriously doubt that it was. As far as the sink hole and the methane theory, not really buying that either as that is going on in an entirely different part of the state. I do find it odd that there are other reports of so called "bunker explosions" in other parts of the world withing the past two weeks, Russia, Canada, and Alabama I did notice something interesting about the dates on those from what people have posted on this thread. The Russia and Canada events took place on the 9th and 10th of October the Louisiana and Alabama events on the 15th and 16th the first two are a day apart and a week later the second two are a day apart. Hmm food for thought there. Do I think there is Military and Government cover up going on in all of these events. Well as an ex Army wife, well, duh, heck yea, the Government and Military cover stuff up to the general public on a daily basis. Yes it is very possible it could be a tit for tat situation it is also very possible that it could have been our own Military testing out weapons and doing a drill. Several years ago I lived in Lawton, Oklahoma with my ex husband as he was stationed at Ft. Sill. The first week or so we were there, I remember being woke up around 3 in the morning to what sounded like a war going on. This was less than a year after 9/11 so obviously I sat up in the bed and freaked out. My then husband assured me that everything was fine they were just doing drills on the training side of Ft. Sill that this was very common. My reply was "at 3 in the morning are you kidding me" he simply said well how else do you expect us to know how to fire at night. You would think the residence would have gotten some sort of heads up, but now. After living there a while you kind of got used to hearing these drills going on at different times of the day and it was not un common for them to rattle windows set off car alarms and shake the house so bad that stuff fell off shelves. Could what happened here the other night be something like that? Barkesdale Air Force Base is one of if not the largest Air Force Base in the US. If you will recall back to 9/11 it was where they sent President Bush at the time of the attacks, which by the way was stupidity on the media's part for reporting that all over the news as it put everyone in this area in danger with a great big red X on top of us. It would stand to reason, especially with recent events that have taken place, not just the thing in Russia but all over the world, for them to do these types of drills, especially if they feel that there may be some sort of attack on the Air Force Base in the near future. Of course they would not disclose that information because then every one around here would panic and be afraid that there was going to be an attack. Think about it, had we been given a heads up before 9/11 what was going to happen on that day, what would the majority of the population done? Same thing here I suspect. Either way I don't feel that we will ever find out the truth as to what happened the other night just what they want us to think. I don't like that but I don't see a way to change it either. Anyway I thought I would share this link that I found it has a lot more pictures of the blast site and figured that you guys on here would like to see it as well.

Yeah, there was definitely aerial events and I can't even tell you why I don't feel they are connected, just my gut feeling I suppose. I'm not saying it couldn't have been, I guess there's as much of a chance of that as anything else.

What gets me though, is that EXPLO came out and said that it was just smokeless powder. That's pretty stable stuff, especially if it is stored properly. It's not like it just reacts to temperature fluctuations or anything. It needs an ignition source and a way into the containers that are inside a bunker made to avoid those things. I dunno, maybe a meteor fell from the sky and did it. Haha. Like I said, I have no better answer.

A new video about the methane / meteor theory. They show in the video how the aquifer systems are linked to the sink hole and that that the methane could very well be traveling to other areas of the state. (There is a map of the aquifer system) A comment to the video by one person talks about how they were in a Home Depot in Florida, and there was a lot of generators sitting with a sign on them that indicated they were for New Orleans.

The peak of the meteor shower is supposed to be tonight.

Thanks for the info and link.
From the link


The following is statement from the Louisiana National Guard concerning the explosion at Camp Minden earlier this week. On Monday night the Camp Minden post security heard a loud sound which could have been a possible explosion. Subsequently, the post security physically surveyed the camp in accordance with established protocols and conferred with contractor tenants who stated that they were not able to confirm the origination of the sound.

Upon daylight on Tuesday morning, a Camp Minden tenant organization, Explo Inc., discovered that one of their storage areas had exploded and reported the incident to the Louisiana National Guard. Following this report, the Louisiana National Guard notified local authorities and the Louisiana State Police of the explosion in accordance with standard protocol. The substance that exploded was a smokeless powder and does not pose a threat outside of Camp Minden. Explo is currently conducting clean-up operations of the site. The incident is under investigation by the LSP.

It seems to me that protocol number one would be to check the big concrete bunkers where all the stuff that goes boom is kept.

Uuhhhhhhhhh....wait, what? Post security didn't see, feel, hear, smell, taste, poop their pants,nothing? I mean, a blast that large and you are there and you don't see it? There was obviously a fire along with it that burned the area around it. It had to be at least smoldering by the time they got to the general area even if it was the last place they checked. All of your senses would detect it. Obviously you'd see it if you were anywhere with at least a _ You'd hear it. You'd feel it. You'd smell it, either the fffg or the burning trees or something. You'd feel the fallout and unless you were expecting it, you'd poop your pants. Ok so I' can't guarantee you'd taste it, but, whatever. Is it because we are such sheeple that we believe whatever they tell us that the tell us these obvious lies or what? I'm so freaking tired of being lied to.

If you're on to something, well have another explosion on Sunday and Monday (thats the 21st and 22nd of October. 12 days after the first series of events, and 6 days after the second). I'd be checking for news reports out of Mexico*, Algeria*, Lybia*, Egypt*, Saudi Arabia*, Qatar*, Iran*, Pakistan*, or India*.

Thats a big list, and over half of them are having some kind of confict going on, so determining if the explosion was organic in nature (ala the Meteorite theory), or if is a product of war (terrorist attack, super secret weapons, to everything inbetween) will be very daunting. Hopefully some countries won't look at a possible explosion in some of these countries as a nuclear test (that is if it realy is an Organic Event)


*I figure that these countries would be the most likely to have an explosion based off of where in the world the explosions are taking place. Russia and Canada are in the upper ranges of the planet, Louisiana and Alabama are in the lower upper part of the planet. This would logically tell me that if this theory is correct then the next wave of explosions will take place in the upper mid-section of the planet followed by events in the lower midpoint of the planet.

*out of curiosity does anyone know what else was taking place during the 9th and 10th, that also happend on the 15th and 16th (any natural events like solar flares, non-explosion linked earthquakes, skyquakes, or anything)?

Will see if I can find anything on the 15th, 16th.

Did run across this. Happened today.

People are reporting they felt the ground shake Saturday morning in South Jersey.

The U.S. Geological Survey and the National Weather Service are not reporting an earthquake in the area. However, there is speculation it could be a sonic boom, according to the USGS.

Reaction on NBC10's Facebook page:

"Had it happen here in brigantine sounded like thunder and everything shook not a cloud in the sky and every dog on the block went nuts didn't seem to effect the seagulls."

"I'm at Historic Cold Spring Village in Lower Twp., southern Cape May County. Heard what sounded like an explosion to the southeast just after 11 am. I was outdoors but my colleagues in our office said the building shook."

October 16th in Hollis, ME. Very odd place for an EQ.

I'm going to carry this idea over to the Skunk Works Forums. Since it's highly speculative in nature.

This thread really should be for updating the Louisiana event. Sorry.

This is the thread I opened to discuss this idea:

Interesting how its trying to be covered up as a bunker explosion. Considering many people saw multiple objects in the sky around the time this "bunker explosion" happened and how some people referred to seeing men in suits near the point of interest. In my opinion: Cover-up in the process . Quick question, does anyone know if people have been at the direct point of the crated to take pictures or anything like that, or did thegovernment beat us to it?

This just seems like it's getting worse. Here is a link I haven't yet seen posted on this thread. Scientists think the methan moving up the aquifer could possibly be linked with explosion.

I posted this article a couple of pages ago, yesterday, and then there is a You tube video on the same subject just a couple of posts above yours.

Anyway, the whole thought of this is very intriguing to me. What if there was a direct meteor hit at the sinkhole? It would be catastrophic, and people who live in the area are already afraid of it blowing up anyway.

Assumption Parish is about 6 hours and over 300 miles South of Webster Parish. They are literally on opposite sides of the State. Webster is in the Northwest corner and Assumption is towards the Southeast.

For the Assumption Parish sinkhole debacle to be even remotely related to anything in Webster Parish, that would mean the entire State of Louisiana was basically one gigantic interconnected salt dome. Which it's not. Although Louisiana is considered part of the Gulf Coast Salt Dome Basin, it is mostly comprised of marine sands and shale formations.


I lived in Louisiana for over 7 years. It is also considered America's wetlands. All that muck from the oil spill made it's way far into the state through the wetlands. The whole state is one giant marsh, so you can't be sure that these two bodies of water are not somehow connected.

I am trying to find out if they are by means of an aquifer, So, let me see what I can find.



Wow, seven years?!?
Add thirty years to that and that's the year I was born at Schumpert Hospital in Shreveport.
Add a little over a century to that, and my great-great Pawpaw took his last breath at the Battle of Mansfield in Desoto Parish.

I started college in 1993 at LSU, then transferred to USL (now called UL-Lafayette) and changed my major to Petroleum Land Management. I worked in the oil and gas industry for 13 years from downtown Houston to Pensacola, FL, with some Oklahoma and Arkansas in there for good measure.

I can state quite comfortably that the subsurface of the State of Louisiana is not interconnected by a ginormous aquifer.
I can also state with reasonable surety that the entire State of Louisiana is not one gigantoid marsh. The Atchafalaya Basin ends at Opelousas. All other marshlands in the State North of that, are typically formed from low-lying river deltas.

I live approximately 35 miles from Camp Minden in Springhill, LA. There has been a LOT of strange things going on that I have not seen in the 20+ years that I have lived in town. We have had an abundance of military aircraft flying overhead, 4 black SUVs with blacked-out windows were seen leaving Camp Minden yesterday, the original photos from the site look NOTHING like the latest ones released. LOCAL fire dept and local HazMat teams were not called out as they have been in the past when something happened at Camp Minden. It was NOT foggy that night, but very clear. I was wide awake when it happened and went outside not once, but twice, because I heard something! I know we are never going to know what happened, but I want to know why the people that are housed at the prison and at the youth challenge school are not, at the very least, deaf. It was LOUD here...35 miles away. I still say something blew up (or was blown up) in the sky and then hit the ground.
