Breaking news out of Philadelphia as were seeing reports that all U.S. Naval facilities in the Philadelphia area have been evacuated after receiving an unspecified threat.
Security at these bases was raised to threat condition “Charlie,” which equates with an “imminent threat”:
ABC 6 has a list of the affected facilities:
The evacuation was ordered around 11 a.m. at the Naval Support Activity Center in Northeast Philadelphia, located at 700 Robbins Street in the Lawndale section of the city.
At the same time, the Naval Shipyard in South Philadelphia was also being evacuated.
The Philadelphia Ordinance Disposal responded to the Northeast Philadelphia facility.
The all-clear has since been given at the Naval Support Activity Center.
The Naval Shipyard is still being evacuated.
We’ll update this post as soon as we learn more.
