Loud Boom: Meteor Hit or Bunker Explosion?
WEBSTER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -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 explosion site was discovered right at sun-up.
Chief Deputy Bobby Igo says the bunker belongs to a company called Explo. Authorities said they would have more information at a 9 a.m. news conference at Camp Minden, but that news conference was postponed until 11 a.m.
Igo says the underground bunkers are designed to send any blast up instead of out to lessen the shock wave impact.
State Police, the Webster Parish Sheriff's Office and the military will investigate exactly what happened.
Earlier in the morning, Sheriff Gary Sexton said there was a "possibility that a meteor did hit the ground" in the area, but deputies had not pinpointed an exact location.
