UPDATE: Not a Meteorite But a Bomb At Camp Minden Shook Your House Last Night
It takes a lot to wake me up, but whatever that explosion was last night did the trick. It shook our home enough to make me sit up straight and look at the alarm clock.
It was 11:26 pm and exactly what happened is still a mystery. A lot of sources are saying that the explosion that shook much of Bossier and Webster parishes in Northwest Louisiana last night might have been caused by a meteorite, yet no one has confirmed the theory.
The Webster sheriff's office is looking into the claims that it was a meteor in the Dixie Inn area. Barksdale Air Force Base officials are looking into the incident themselves but confirm that the incident did not originate at the base. Helicopters are expected to be in the air this morning to survey the area along U.S. 80 and Interstate 20 for the cause of last night's events.
Reports of the shaking came in from Lake Bistineau, Springhill, Sibley and Barksdale Air Force Base. Reports of government conspiracy are already circulating on Facebook.
Around 8:30 this morning, Camp Minden reports that a bomb had exploded in a bunker on their grounds and was fully contained. More info on this coming later today. One question though. Why did it take them so long to make this announcement?
