The ordnance was originally located by a Washington State Department of Natural Resources crew, who reported the incident.
A Coast Guard Station Seattle boat crew aboard a 45-foot Response Boat Medium is monitoring the 1,500-yard water safety zone, which has been established around the ordnance as it continues to drift south near Bremerton.
