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.

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.

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.

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.
