Residents Near Knightsen Evacuated

KNIGHTSEN, Calif. (KCBS) -- Contra Costa authorities have evacuated residents in a 1-mile radius around Broadway in the unincorporated town near Oakley, said sheriff spokesman Jimmy Lee.

A resident discovered what appears to be dynamite near his home around 1:30 p.m., Lee said.

People in the immediate vicinity have been told to head to Delta Vista Middle School on Frank Hengle Way near East Cyprus Road while the bomb squad is dispatched.

An automated emergency telephone alert was sent to 220 households advising them of the evacuation, Lee said.

They're saying on the police channels that there's like 5 minutes left on the timer.

WTF? This is weird.

Oh, it's miles away and it sounds like they have everyone in the area evacuated -- to Shelby's school, funny enough.

It's just very strange.
Oh yes, quite.

And to think if there had been school today she probably would be there too, under lockdown.
