School Evacuated for UXO Disposal

Barrigadam, Guam Students at P.C. Lujan Elementary School in Guam may never get a "snow day," but they did have an unexpected "ordnance" day as school was evacuated and closed early for authorities to clear a WWII UXO discovered during construction on Guam Army National Guard property adjacent to the school.

The school was inside of the blast radius, so it, along with portions of the National Guard base, were evacuated. The Guam Fire Department and Guam Police Department responded to a 911 call when the munition was uncovered during work on a sewer system. Naval Base Guam EOD was called to dispose of the unidentified ordnance.
