Yesterday, the National Park Service located and then contacted the U.S. Navy regarding a potential World War II era unexploded ordnance that was found in a remote area on the southern end of Hatteras Island. Today, the U.S. Navy’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit arrived on scene and used controlled detonation to render it safe.
Outer Banks Group Superintendent David Hallac said, “the disposal of two unexploded ordnances in the last six days serves as a reminder of the part the Outer Banks played during World War II. I greatly appreciate the support the U.S. Navy has provided.”
