    Officials say an unexploded ordnance has been found at Sandy Hook, but it does not appear to pose a safety risk.

    National Parks Services Spokeswoman Daphne Yun tells The Associated Press that the ordnance was found Wednesday near a ferry dock in the Fort Hancock area. She says the site is not near Sandy Hook's beaches or the historic areas.

    Crews were responding to the scene to remove the ordnance. It was not immediately clear how it ended up at the site, but several ordnances have been found along the Jersey Shore since Sandy hit last fall.

    The ferry dock and a nearby roadway were temporarily closed as a precaution.
