Employees at the Fukushima Power Plant in Japan discovered a blast from the past when they found an unexploded bomb buried in a parking lot Thursday.

In March 2011, the Fukushima nuclear site experienced a series of disasters after Japan was hit with a tsunami and an quake, all culminating in an environmental catastrophe that has been compared to Chernobyl.

TEPCO called police immediately upon finding the object, suspending construction work and roping off the area around one kilometre (0.62 mile) from the reactors, he added.

It was found by workers building a auto park at the site where a four-decade-long decommissioning process is under way.

Britney Spears Frightened During Vegas Show as Man Rushes Stage
The star's Piece of Me Vegas residency, which has earned over $100 million in ticket sales, will come to a close later this year. Multiple media outlets reported that Spears later returned to the stage to finish the show.

Japan's Jiji Press reported that under such circumstances police call in bomb disposal experts from Japan's military.

Due to the meltdown, around tens of thousands of residents had to evacuate the area.

AFP reports that a Japanese military airport was in the area close to the Fukushima plant during World War II, and was targeted by United States bombers.

The area where the plant is located was home to a Japanese air base subjected to bombing by U.S. forces in the conflict, and this is believed to be the origin of the device. The Fukushima meltdown was worst since Chernobyl nuclear accident in 1986.
