Woman discovers World War II-era bomb

A woman walking her dog Wednesday found a World War II-era bomb on a Florida beach. Later authorities detonated it.

No one was injured.

Jeannie Emack called local authorities, who determined the roughly 100-pound (45.4-kilogram) bomb was too old and unstable to move. Instead, they evacuated nearly two blocks of homes, while members of the sheriff's Explosive Ordinance Disposal team dug a hole in the sand and detonated the bomb.

The bomb was covered in rust, indicating it was in salt water for about fifty years, officials said.

It was believed to have washed ashore Wednesday morning.
