NORFOLK--Something odd fell from the sky and landed in a Norfolk neighborhood.
The Navy Region Mid-Atlantic Engine-17, the bomb squad and Norfolk firefighters responded to the 2900 block of Somerset Lane in Ocean View just after 6:00 p.m. Tuesday.
The bomb squad used a robot to get a closer look at the square Styrofoam box package in the street. The box had a balloon attached to it and one person told authorities it was making a strange noise.
As a precaution, people living close to the item were evacuated.
Around 8:40 p.m., after looking at photos taken by the robot, firefighters determined the package was likely a weather balloon possibly from NASA's Wallops Island on the Eastern Shore. . . .
