SEATTLE -- The KING 5 Investigators have uncovered a multi-agency operation involving an unusual and potentially dangerous finding in the waters of Elliott Bay. Police and military divers have discovered World War II-era and possibly even older ammunition underneath the new high-traffic cruise ship terminal in Seattle.

There's no evidence of any imminent danger to the community with the discovery of the old ammunition. However, the ammo brought to the surface did contain explosives and no one knows for sure what's still down there.
