19th Century cannonballs were discovered on a South Carolina shore in the aftermath of the devastating Hurricane Matthew earlier in October.

The Associated Press reports that the Charleston County Sheriff's Office bomb squad was sent to Folly Beach, approximately six miles from both downtown Charleston and Fort Sumter, to ensure the cannonballs were safe from any explosive materials.

Some of the explosives were removed for destruction - but others were detonated where they were found.
