The National Weather Service Joins The Department Of Homeland Security In Stockpiling Ammunition
First, the Department Of Homeland Security ordered 450 million rounds of hollow point bullets back in March. Now, the National Weather Service is joining in and stockpiling 46 thousand rounds of ammo as well.
The National Weather Service stations in Ellsworth, Maine, and New Bedford, Mass., are slated to receive 16,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow point (JHP) bullets.
6,000 rounds of S&W JHP will be sent to Wall, New Jersey and another 24,000 rounds of the same bullets will be handed over to the station in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Officials from both agencies have chosen not to be transparent about the need and use of the ordered rounds.
