Augsburg Evacuated Over WWII Bomb

A recently discovered WWII-era bomb has prompted a Christmas Day evacuation of 54,000 people in the German city of Augsburg.
Specialists are standing by to disable the device, Deutsche Welle reported.
Christmas morning for some means a day spent cozy next to the tree with family and a cup of hot cocoa. But for residents of the city of Augsburg near Munich, this Christmas has meant packing a bag with the essentials and leaving the house.
After an old aerial bomb from World War II was unearthed on a construction site earlier this week, officials ordered the evacuation of residents in a radius of 1.5 kilometers around the bomb. This affects roughly 54,000 people.
Augsburg experienced heavy bombardment during World War II by Allied air forces. The discovery of unexploded bombs in many cities around Germany is a fairly regular occurrence.
Preplanned evacuations take place in such instances to allow specialists to disable the bombs.
