Emergency service units responded to the threat of a radioactive dirty bomb in Charleston, South Carolina Wednesday night.
The U.S. Coast Guard, Federal Bureau Of Investigation, local police and Hazardous Materials teams are reportedly searching for an explosive device possibly containing radioactive material that may have been smuggled onto the Maersk Memphis, a container ship currently moored at Charleston’s Wando terminal.
Officials with the Coast Guard say federal and state authorities are continuing to investigate a potential threat which was reported at the Wando Terminal Wednesday night.
Coast Guard officials say the FBI is investigating a report of a “dirty bomb” aboard a vessel.
A dirty bomb is composed of conventional explosives and radioactive material.
According to emergency officials, no radiation has been found at this time.
