KSLA's Adam Hooper took a ride in helicopter to get an aerial view of the destruction at Camp Minden.

As Hooper notes, the blast site is actually comprised of two blasted areas. The ground is blackened more at one site than the other.

Though hard to see, smoke was still rising from the area Tuesday evening.

The blast was strong enough to knock down trees surrounding the area. So many train cars were derailed from nearby tracks that it appears that the entire train was derailed. Some of the track beneath the overturned cars appear to be damaged as well.
