A couple found two Civil War-era cannonballs on Folly Beach in South Carolina on Sunday

(FoxNews) – Two Civil War cannonballs have been discovered on a South 
Carolina beach in the aftermath of
Hurricane Dorian.

A spokesman for the city of Folly Beach told Fox News that some seashell
hunters spotted a suspicious item in the area of the old Coast Guard Base
at the east end of the beach. “It was reported to us as potentially older
unexplored ordnance,” he explained via email. “As per our policy, we
notified the Charleston County EOD [Explosive Ordnance Disposal] team
who also responded and assisted with notifying the military EOD team.”

The spokesman added,“It was determined to be a cannonball (one larger
8” shell and one 3” shell)… “We were advised the military EOD team will
handle disposing of the ordnance.”
