Law enforcement personnel stand at a roadblock along Hwy 163 just south of Doyline, La., Saturday. Authorities have begun moving 1 million pounds of improperly stored explosive powder to storage bunkers at the Camp Minden industrial site. State investigators found the explosives while inspecting property leased by Explo Systems, where an above-ground storage magazine exploded in October. (AP Photo/The Shreveport Times, Jim Hudelson)
This aerial photo provided by the Louisiana State Police shows part of the smokeless explosive powder improperly stored outside Explo Systems Inc., a munitions dismantling facility at Camp Minden at Doyline, La. Police moved millions of pounds of explosives Monday that had been haphazardly stashed in warehouses in Louisiana, prompting hundreds to evacuate from harm's way in case any of it exploded. About half the 800 residents in nearby Doyline, about 40 miles south of the Arkansas line, heeded state police warnings to evacuate until the stash could be divided into smaller quantities.
