Obviously, someone has nothing better to do this afternoon.

SAN ANTONIO — A bomb threat forced evacuations at the San Antonio International Airport Wednesday afternoon.

An airport official confirmed terminal facilities were evacuated for bomb threat” that was called in by phone around 2:00 p.m. Evacuations were ordered around 2:30 p.m.

San Antonio Police Chief Bill McManus said their bomb-sniffing dogs had “hits” for possible explosives on three vehicles in the lower level of the short term parking garage as indicated by the caller. He said bomb techs suited up and have checked and cleared two of the vehicles.

McManus said there were also “non-specific threats” concerning both terminals. Both terminals were evacuated, and ten VIA Metropolitan buses were sent to the airport to transport anyone who needed to evacuate. Reports indicate both terminals have since been checked. Nothing was found and the terminals have been reopened.

People who were evacuated are still out on the tarmac.
