Securing America: Explosives Force Louisiana Evacuations [VIDEO]
People in a Louisiana town are told to keep out because of millions of pounds of explosives that were improperly stored at a nearby former Army base.
FOX News Radio’s Jane Metzler reports in our ongoing series on national security:
The voluntary evacuation order in effect at least until Friday for the 800 people who live in Doyline, Louisiana, about 25 miles east of Shreveport. This after state police found serious storage issues at a munitions recycling facility on the grounds of what used to be the Camp Minden Army Base.
Corridors connecting buildings said to be stuff with explosives, including a propellant called M6 – it’s used in artillery shells. Authorities unsure what would happen if something caused them to explode, but they feared a massive chain reaction blast. Six million pounds of explosives being moved to safer bunkers on base, very carefully.
