Threat evacuates Alabama airport

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – The terminal at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport has been evacuated because of a threat.

The airport’s Facebook page said the terminal had been evacuated Sunday because of a threat but didn’t elaborate.

FBI spokesman Paul Daymond says the agency’s bomb technicians are working with local police to investigate.

The airport website said several flights into the airport were being diverted.

Police spokesman Johnny Williams said he and other officers were on their way to the airport Sunday evening but didn’t have any details on what prompted the evacuation. A call and email to the Birmingham Airport Authority wasn’t immediately returned.

WBRC-TV reported that the station’s meteorologist was on the scene and confirmed that several planes from multiple airlines were parked away from the gates.
