The Broward Sheriff’s Office said two terminals at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport had to be evacuated after they were notified of a threat.

BSO said it happened at around 8:49 a.m.

As a precaution, deputies evacuated Terminals 2 and 3 and also shut down entry into the airport.

BSO’s bomb squad investigated the threat.

Law enforcement had closed the lower-level roadway and the upper-level roadway during their investigation.

Cecilia Orozco said it was chaotic.

“I was dropping off a friend before 9 a.m. and I dropped him off. Started going towards Terminal 3 to leave the airport and the cop cars just got in front of us. Stopped the car. Fire squad, all that kind of stuff,” said Orozco.

Orozco says her friend was inside the TSA checkpoint and texted her saying there was a bomb threat.

He told Orozco they were evacuating them from Terminal 2.

Orozco, who remained outside the airport says, “that’s when I saw someone get arrested and we were here for almost 3 hours.”

Broward County Sheriff’s Office confirmed it was a bomb threat that triggered temporary evacuations at Terminals 2 and 3.

Deputies blocked entry to the entire airport – and asked people to avoid the area while its bomb squad investigated.

People at the time were frustrated, wondering why their flight was delayed, but others understood.

“It’s a bomb threat. If we stay another hour, we stay another hour.”

It was within an hour and half when BSO gave the all-clear.
