Hurricane Matthew unearths Civil War-era cannonballs in South Carolina

A cluster of Civil War-era cannonballs washed up on a South Carolina beach on Sunday after #HurricaneMatthew whipped the southeastern U.S. coast with strong winds and heavy flooding.

The U.S. Air Force later detonated the roughly 150-year-old ammunition at a nearby Naval base in Charleston, according to the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office.

A local resident of Folly Beach found the rusty, pockmarked cannonballs on Sunday while walking on the eroded beach, the sheriff’s office told CNN.
