New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is sending members of the New York National Guard to Kennedy and LaGuardia Airports following the terrorist attacks in Brussels.
Cuomo says while there is no credible threat against the state, he’s sending 400 National Guard members to the airports and deploying state troopers to help patrol Penn Station and Grand Central Terminal. Security is also being increased at other high-profile locations across the state.
“We’re going to be redoubling our efforts today here in this state at our airports, our terminals, train terminals, etc., as we have before.”
NEW YORK (WABC) --
More than 200 flights to Brussels were diverted or canceled after three explosions that authorities are calling terror attacks.
Dozens of people were killed in two explosions that hit Brussels airport Tuesday morning and a third that rocked the city's Maelbeek metro station.
The Brussels airport has been shut down and will remain so through Wednesday, and airport security has been tightened across Europe and the world.
At Kennedy Airport, Port Authority police moved quickly to secure the terminals with attack dogs and officers in body armor with automatic weapons, as the New York National Guard stepped up patrols on the arrival and departure levels at the international arrivals building.
