What was that? Loud explosion heard across Ocean County

Minutes ago, members from the 87th Explosive Ordnance Disposal team detonated an unexploded ordinance  retrieved from off base at the Joint Base MDL.

The detonation was similar to mortar training, and was a single explosion.

“If you heard a big BOOM, don’t freak out — it’s just the expert hands of 87th EOD,” the base said.
Because it’s overcast, the sound travelled further and seemed louder.
