BREAKING: Bomb Threat at Fort Lauderdale Airport – Terminals Closed – Update Now Airport is Back Running

There was a bomb threat at Fort Lauderdale’s International airport this morning.  This airport is normally very busy because Fort Lauderdale is where many cruise lines begin their journies.

The New York Post reported on the bomb threat at Fort Lauderdale’s airport this morning:

A Florida airport was partially evacuated for several hours Saturday after a bomb threat, police said.

The Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport closed down two terminals “as a precaution,” authorities said. About three hours later, the airport’s official account tweeted that the ” security incident is cleared.”

A local deputy said the lockdown was in response to a bomb threat, Parker Branton, a reporter at ABC affiliate WPLG tweeted.

“Bomb squad inside checking to see if threat is credible… this will take a while,” he posted, quoting the deputy.

Broward County Sheriff’s Department announced the bomb threat this morning.

The latest report is that the airport is back open but some flights might be delayed:

Good luck to the travelers heading towards Fort Lauderdale today.
