If you didn't follow this story over the last month, there was some thought that a meteor set off the first explosion at Camp Minden. Someone here advanced the theory that the gas trapped in an aquifer may have caused that explosion.
I live 500 miles away and based on initial reports late at night I figured that the first explosion that rained debris down on a nearby business district had to be from Camp Minden by looking at the area with Apple's new mapping program. I could even count the bunkers on that map. Locals assured me the military said everything was ok and that could not be the source.
After day break the next morning when the sheriff had a helicopter up searching the area the SO's chopper noticed that a bunker had blown up at Minden just a few hundred feet off I-20.
Not only was the military slack that night but it looks like they have been dreadfully careless since.
There are a number of bases filled with dangerous bunkers in Alabama. LA has Miden and possibly others I have never heard of. The chemical ones near Aniston AL worry me the most.
A bad accident there could wipe out life all the way to Atlanta.
Now check out this updated news.
