Guam - A World War II ordnance weighing as much as 1,000 lbs. discovered at a construction site in Hagatna has resulted in the evacuation of the Judiciary of Guam, several businesses and the Route 4-West O'Brien intersections.

O'Brien Drive will also be closed from Shirley's to the Hagatna Pool. The Navy's Explosive Ordnance Disposal team is at the site to carry out safe disposal of the ordnance. Police are carrying out the evacuation of the courthouse, the Nieves M. Flores Memorial Library, Shirley's, Pizza Hut and Mobil.
