Part of Fort Lauderdale Airport Evacuated Amid 'Security Investigation'

Portions of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida were evacuated due to a “security investigation” on Saturday, July 10, airport officials said.

The Fort Lauderdale airport said on Twitter that the investigation was impacting traffic near Terminals 2 and 3. Parts of Terminals 2 and 3 were evacuated “as a precaution,” the airport said.

Gabbi Atwell Raymond said these videos were filmed between 10:09 and 10:15 am in Terminal 3. Raymond said she heard an announcement ordering people to evacuate the terminal, but then workers “cut off the exits” and travelers were unable to leave.
