Baltimore Harbor Tunnel and All of I895 have been shut down due to Explosived being found. This was breaking on my way home from work at about 2:20 am.

Initially, five explosive devices were found. Teams later found four more devices Wednesday night. The devices ranged in size from 500 to 4,000 pounds, said Cpl. Greg Prioleau, a spokesman for the Maryland Transportation Authority police.


Damn!
I wonder how long they were laying around there.
Did they come from one of the ships they were dismantling?

Wow, that is a biggy. Will be interesting to see what slant the press puts on it, and if they have any immediate idea of who is responsible.

Baltimore's Harbor Tunnel Thruway was shut down Wednesday night and access to a wide area around Fairfield restricted as Army and police explosives experts examined large World War II-era munitions discovered near an old shipyard site.

Contractor Potts and Callahan was working on an excavation project at the site, which is near a parking lot where Mazdas and Toyotas are placed when they are unloaded from ships.


It says WW2 but not US WW2. Could they have been smuggled in on a ship carying the cars and possible in the cars?

I guess I just answered my own question.



The first bomb unearthed -- which resembled those dropped from airplanes -- had been defused before the workers with Potts & Callahan Contracting Co. discovered it, said Cpl. Greg Prioleau, a spokesman for the Maryland Transportation Authority Police.


I doubt this would be the type that would be smuggled in unless they planned on dropping them from planes. Probably just forgotten about. Damn, thats pretty dangerous area to keep those.

Living in Baltimore, I know this isnt a bad thing. There are 3 or 5 WWII era bombs. Im getting conflicting reports. One doesnt have a fuse they dont know about the others. They were found when a company was clearing a ship scrapyard for use. Theyre not even sure there are explosives in them. Heres a local news site www.wjz.com...
