FORT HUACHUCA, Ariz. - A live explosive round found on the East Range of Fort Huachuca will not be detonated until Wednesday due to potential monsoon storms in the area.
A live 105mm high-explosive round was found in Area D, a remote location on the fort's East Range, according to a news release from the base. Originally, an explosive ordnance team from Davis-Monthan Air Force Base was scheduled to arrive Tuesday and detonate the round.
Instead, the donation will be conducted by the Weapons Intelligence Course instructors at Fort Huachuca at about 10 a.m. Wednesday. Residents on and off base may hear a loud explosive sound at this time.
