World War II munitions found at Pier 91 being exploded

There is not points to locate on the map

You never know what you might find down there…

The Army Corps of engineers is exploding World War II munitions that were found in the water at Pier 91 in Smith Cove at the south end of Interbay this week, according to the Magnolia Voice, one of our community partners.

Cruise ships are docked there and the concern was that one of the behemoth vessels might come in contact with the leftover wartime devices.

The devices were found in 2010 in sediment and were uncovered by cruise ship thrusters.

There’s a video accompanying the story.
