Honolulu, Hawaii Divers inspecting the discharge pipe at the Kahe Power Plant discovered an item in the water that resembled a munition. The divers called the Honolulu Police to report the find and described the items as a five foot long cylindrical body with fins and a propeller.
The police responded with technical support from the bomb squad. As a safety precaution the surrounding area was sealed off while the bomb squad investigated. Thinking that the item was a torpedo, the bomb squad called the Navy for assistance in identifying the suspect munition. EOD identified the device as a directional buoy, not a munition item. The buoy was safely removed without incident.
