Seeing feeds coming through on Twitter of Chicago O'hare being evacuated right now over a suspicious piece of luggage....some saying it is nothing and some saying it is....

Twitter

Would be strange after the reports this morning of the lady trying to get into the cockpit on a flight.

They are investigating an unattended bag. O'Hare is not being evacuated.

Though I can;t tell of terminal 3 was evacuated or not.

S&F. I should really have my twitter up. Or ask Antediluvian how he gets his newsfeed.

A lot are saying Terminal 3 has been evacuated. No idea of it being a credible threat though. If nothing I am sure it will die out quickly.

Yep....and likely any package left alone is going to cause alarm now. I was just reading about a shoebox left outside a media station in Australia was called in and there is a pic of a robot inspecting it. This will likely happen for some period of time until nerves settle.

Seems there was enough of a threat to call in the bomb squad as shown in this new report.

They don't seem to be too worried about it though, so my guess is that it is nothing.

The announcements on the PA system always say 'don't leave your bag unattended'. I find it hard to believe someone just 'fogot it'. I am guessing someone pulled it off the luggage turnstile, realized it wasn't theirs and was behind schedule so couldn't put it back where they found it?

Just something I have always wondered about.



Trying to lighten the mood a bit, as well.

well, there is this fact that over 400 innocents have been killed in attacks in Paris, Russian airliner, and the Beirut and Baghdad bombings, that might have led to this paranoia...sometimes a little paranoia makes a lot of sense

We need a few of these every once in a while.

Homeland Security has to prove that we still need them to pat us down, take off our shoes, and irradiate us before each flight.

So far they haven't mentioned anything.

You'd be surprised. People put their bag down and sit to wait, then see someone they know, or see something in a store and walk away, leading their bag sitting there. Then come back to dogs, the area secured, and law enforcement everywhere.

There's a possibility that either this or the Hannover incident were security tests to make sure everyone is doing their job. Who knows? Maybe if the baggage had gone unnoticed all day long the next day would have been filled with some people getting chewed out and fired by their superiors.

Then again, maybe not. Just putting out the possibility.

Thank you airport security for doing you job when a bag was noticed unattended that didn't seem to belong to anyone.

Congrats to whoever reported it. It is what should be done rather than ignore it.

There is no paranoia in this action.

It is what is supposed to be done when an event like this happens.

Don't leave you bag unattended in ANY airport.
