morning, a potential unexploded ordnance was found on a beach near Cape
Hatteras National Seashore’s beach access ramp 34 in Avon, North
Carolina. An Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) unit from Marine Corps
Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point is en route to remove the device.
A 200 meter buffer zone has been established to ensure visitor safety.
The section of beach within the buffer zone will be reopened once an
all clear is received from the MCAS Cherry Point EOD unit.
As severe weather continues to impact the Atlantic Ocean, beachgoers
should be aware of the possibility that a variety of hazardous items
may wash ashore.
