  • COURTESY DEPARTMENT OF LAND AND NATURAL RESOURCES

    An aging unexploded ordnance was discovered this morning on South Maui.

State land officers have blocked off a section of shoreline on South Maui after someone found an aging unexploded ordnance among rocks near the ocean.

Maui police received a call about the “old rusted” ordnance at 11:27 a.m. today and notified the state Department of Land and Natural Resources, said Deborah Ward, DLNR spokeswoman.

Both agencies responded to the location near 4950 Makena Road and state officers taped off a perimeter.

Ward said an exploded ordnance disposal unit was called to remove the item. She said it was not clear when the EOD team would arrive.
