JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville International Airport in Florida has reopened after authorities found two suspicious packages — one they said was destructive — that led to an evacuation and a shutdown for hours.
There was no immediate word early Wednesday about arrests and travelers were advised to check with their airlines regarding flight information.
The airport was evacuated around 6 p.m. Tuesday after police found a suspicious package in the terminal and another in a nearby parking garage. It reopened just before 11 p.m.
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office officials say one of the packages "had some destructive nature" and was taken offsite.
When authorities decided to shut down the airport, some incoming planes were held up on the tarmac until buses arrived to pick up passengers. The passengers were shuttled to nearby hotels.
