An object believed to be a mine has bee found floating off Dania Beach in South Florida. It was spotted by a passing boater who also reported it. U.S. Navy Explosive Ordinance Disposal technicians are arriving from Mayport (Jacksonville, FL Naval Base) to asses the situation.
Police have evacuated the beach and the Coast Guard have imposed a 1,000 yard exclusion zone around the object which is slowly drifting south. Officials say they will investigate the object further and detonate it at sea.
