CA: LAX security theater over “suspicious package” creates traffic jam

Source: CBS Los Angeles

“Authorities at Los Angeles International Airport have closed the upper departure level at LAX due to a suspicious item found in terminal 3. Traffic is being redirected to the lower arrival level but traffic is still heavily backed up. … CBSLA has learned that travelers and employees have been removed from the ticketing area of terminal 3 but it’s unclear if the entire terminal was evacuated. A bomb squad has arrived to the scene and will be investigating the scene, which will inevitably continue to cause delays for incoming and outgoing travelers. At 11:46 pm on Sunday, the airport announced on its Twitter page that it was determined safe to open terminal 3 once again after police conducted its investigation.” (07/31/22)
