HEADLINE: Orlando, Fla., homes built atop WWII bombing range
Waiting to hear from the Central Florida Cyburbians on this one.They recently learned their 8-year-old developments were built on a World War II bombing range that wasn't thoroughly cleared. Now they're scared for their lives and investments and angry with developers and local government officials who residents claim shouldn't have allowed the homes in the first place.
There are hundreds of former bombing and artillery training ranges across the U.S., but few have 2,000 homes sitting on top of them.
reports on the range from late 1990s were shared with the local officials who compiled information used to approve the site development, before the homes and schools went up. But that information was somehow stripped before the housing was approved. Current city officials haven't been able to determine how or why that happened.
This sounds really bad for all the parties involved. or
So what if this the second thread I have started about buried bombs/munitions.
