The San Antonio International Airport has been given the all-clear following a bomb threat earlier today that saw the airport’s two terminals evacuated.
Tweets from inside the airport and from planes grounded on the tarmac give an indication of the fear and confusion surrounding the incident.
Wow. Just waiting in security at San Antonio Airport and they just had a lockdown and moved everyone away. Way to instill fear, people!
