Army Warns Beach Goers in Maili About Potentially Dangerous Cylinders

MAILI (KHNL) - The U.S. Army is warning beach goers in Maili to be on the look out for potentially dangerous cylinders. Army officials headed out to Maili to hand out fliers warning the public about the small cylinders that washed up on Maili beach yesterday.

The Army says the cylinders which are small propellant charges are about an inch long and are highly flammable and extremely sensitive to friction and static electricity.

The Army is cautioning that the charges should not be touched, and anyone who has them should put them in water.

Those who find any are advised to contact the Honolulu Fire Department or Honolulu Police, who will coordinate with the military for disposal.
