- Lost nuclear bomb possibly found - Sep 13, 2004

I Knew There Was Something Odd About Those Fish:

From CNN:

Government experts are investigating a claim that an unarmed nuclear bomb, lost off the Georgia coast at the height of the Cold War, might have been found.... A group led by retired Air Force Lt. Col. Derek Duke of Statesboro, Georgia, said in July that it had found a large object underwater near Savannah that was emitting high levels of radioactivity, according to an Associated Press report.

The group said it used radiation and metal detection equipment to search an area in Wassaw Sound off Tybee Island where the bomb reportedly was dropped, the AP reported.
This will not surprise any Savannah residents. I lived there myself for four years, and I have to say it all makes perfect sense.
