Pipe Bomb Explosion On Jersey Shore Boardwalk Cancels Marines Charity Run

NJ Explosion Evacuates Seaside Park Boardwalk Area At Jersey Shore

The boardwalk area in Seaside Park was evacuated – and a lockdown was in place – on Saturday because of an explosion, and authorities said they were searching for another possible explosive device.

The explosion apparently involved at least one pipe bomb in a trash can at the time a Semper Five 5K race event – with 3,000 participants – was to be held for the U.S. Marines, according to authorities. The race was canceled.
