Unexploded World War II-era device found on Outer Banks

HATTERAS ISLAND, N.C. (AP) - Another unexploded World War II-era ordnance has been found on the North Carolina coast.
 
A news release from Cape Hatteras National Seashore said National Park Service rangers found the device on Tuesday in a remote area at the southern end of Hatteras Island.
 
On Wednesday, the Navy's Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit responded and detonated the bomb.
 
Last Friday, another piece of World War II-era ordnance was found on Shelly Island, the new island that formed off the North Carolina coast in the spring.
 
An ordnance disposal team removed that item as well.
