250 kilo bomb in Regensburg East is blown up

During earthworks in an industrial area in Regensburg East on Tuesday a 250-kilogram bomb from the Second World War has been found. That's what the police said in the evening.

4,500 local residents affected by evacuation

In the meantime, the authorities have also published an official hazard statement: People are urged to leave the danger area quickly and to follow the instructions of the emergency services. The blaster has set a safety radius of 1,500 meters. According to police, 4,500 residents are affected by the evacuation. The areas and roads affected by the measures can be found here.

Site is located on the B8

The site is located near the B8 federal highway. The bomb will still be blown up during the night.

However, there is no residential development right on the site in Bucharest Street. The industrial area is close to the Regensburg harbor.

However, the safety radius also extends to the district Schwabelweis on the northern side of the Danube. In the Danube Arena, the Regensburg Ice Stadium, a care center for affected residents is set up.

Again and again bomb finds

In Regensburg duds from the World War II are found again and again. The last time was the beginning of March. At that time an explosive device was found during construction works on the A3. The bomb could be blasted in a controlled manner.
