Authorities in England detonated a big bomb from WWII over the weekend.

A 2,200 pound bomb was found in Exeter, England and successfully destroyed Saturday, according to the BBC. How was it destroyed? They blew it up after evacuating the area! The BBC also reported that there was damage to some of the surrounding buildings. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Well, you damn sure don’t see something like that every single day of the week. Generally speaking, bombs from WWII aren’t exactly found and detonated on a regular basis in the year 2021.

That’s just not something that happens very often, which is what makes this so fascinating.

UPDATE: A WW2 bomb located near #Exeter University has been detonated. The 400-metre cordon will remain in place tonight so residents must not return home. Anyone who has been evacuated and has any concerns can call the council helpline: 0345 155 1015

Imagine walking through your backyard enjoying your afternoon, and all of a sudden you stumble upon a 2,200-pound relic from World War II. I would be terrified of accidentally setting it off. I’d absolutely panic.

Turns out the #ExeterBomb was louder than expected!

Also, if you want to see something super cool, check out this aerial view of the detonation. It’s pretty sick.

We’ve spent the last 2 days in Exeter supporting the huge multi-agency operation for an unexploded WW2 bomb. This is from the drone the moment it was detonated…
