We’re living in an era of perpetual fear. To think that an undetonated American bomb, from world war 2, could cause 70-75k people to evacuated a city is unbelievable to me.
Granted, the thing weighed 275lbs and could shatter a few city streets, but it wasn’t a damned nuclear device.
Authorities in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki say an unexploded World War II bomb found under a gas station was defused Sunday and safely taken to an army firing range outside the city, paving the way for over 70,000 people to return home.
The roads in western Thessaloniki and the suburb of Kordelio, where most of those forced to evacuate earlier Sunday came from, have reopened. Authorities had shut down a 1.9 kilometer (1.2-mile) radius for experts to safely work on the bomb.
