Jacksonville Airport Evacuated After Suspicious Packages Found. UPDATE: Package Removed By Bomb Squad UPDATE: Two Men In Custody
(CNN) – Officials issued an all-clear late Tuesday after Jacksonville International Airport in Florida was evacuated in response to suspicious packages.
“At this point, we’ve gotten an all-clear in the terminal and our garages and our surface lots,” Jacksonville Airport Authority spokesman Michael Stewart told reporters.
The evacuation had an impact on flights, with some arriving aircraft diverted and some passengers taken from planes already on the ground to hotels.
One suspicious package was in a garage, another in a terminal, said Stewart.
Asked whether there had been any arrests, he said: “Not to my knowledge.”
The FBI is assisting in an ongoing investigation.
