Nothing like a little explosive WW2 diversion washing up to take away the attention from the latest outpouring of tarball love courtesy of British Petroleum. WKRG reports that a bomb was found on Orange Beach in Alabama. "The device is
disk-shaped and about 3 feet wide and appears to weigh about 500 lbs.
It was found in the surfline. Crews have cordoned off about 30 yards of
beach with construction fence.
Authorities believe it might be an old World War
II shell of some sort.
"  Surely, this is one of the key upside catalysts sought for by all BP value investors.

From WKRG:

A scary day for beachgoers in Orange Beach after
an explosive device is found near Perdido Pass.

Lt. Steve Brown with Orange Beach Police tells News 5 that the device
appears to be an underwater bomb. It was found on the east side of the
Perdido Pass near the jetties. Orange Beach Police and Fire are on the
scene.

A bomb squad from NAS Pensacola is enroute to the scene. We hope to
have more information for News 5 at Noon.
