Weapons discovered under New Cruise Terminal

Recently discovered military shells and other weapons found buried in silt under Seattle’s new cruise ship terminal create obvious public safety and ecological risks.

“This stuff is toxic,” said Kathy Fletcher of People For Puget Sound. Fletcher said not only does this pose an active risk to salmon and other fish in the area, but also threatens to delay badly needed cleanup projects. 

The Coast Guard has said they don’t know yet the extent of the weapons in that area.
