Doyline Explosive Update


Authorities have raised their estimate of the amount of dangerous material improperly stored at an explosive recycling company in Louisiana.

Louisiana state police now believe 10 million pounds of a military propellant called M6 was improperly stored at Explo Systems near Doyline.

They originally believed it was only 6 million pounds that was recovered. Doyline was evacuated for a week in December over concerns a chain-reaction blast was possible.

Most of the M6 was moved into bunkers, but authorities are still looking for space to house 3.5 million pounds of material.
