Ordnance safely disposed at a Waianae beach

WAIANAE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Navy safely disposed a piece of ordnance on Friday afternoon at Makua beach in Waianae.

The Navy's Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) was able to detonate the ordnance in a controlled manner at approximately 2 p.m.

The EOD said it wasn't able to identify the ordnance because of the vegetation growth around the item, which could mean that the item was in the waters for a very long period.
