Residents of Bossier City, and the surrounding areas, are trying to find answers on social media this morning after many heard (and in some cases felt) explosions. Many reported the force of the blasts shaking their homes and belongings.

We reached out to Mark Natale, the Public Information Officer for the City of Bossier City and the Bossier Police and Fire Departments. He was able to clear it up for us:

"The explanation we got is that the base is doing some explosive work on beaver dams."

We're assuming 'the base' in question in of course Barksdale Air Force Base. Natale went on to explain a little more about the situation, as far as what he understands:

"...they dam up waterways, and they do a whole bunch of damage to properties."

If it turns out to be more than just beaver dams, we'll update you as soon as more information becomes available.
