Terni Italian authorities evacuated more than 11 thousand local residents due to the discovery of the bombs during the Second world war, according to the city Prefecture in the Central region of Umbria.

American bomb weighing 250 kilograms was discovered on a construction site close to the railway station.

According to the mayor of Terni Leonardo Latini, the shell can explode, so the initial radius of the evacuation of 380 meters has been expanded to 1.8 kilometers. Local residents are encouraged to bring necessities and medicines.

After the evacuation of military sappers began defusing a bomb, then they will remove it in a safe place for its detonation. According to estimates, it may take several hours.
