Bomb threats are causing delays at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
Channel 2's Mark Winne learned that NORAD fighter jets escorted two airline flights into the airport due to credible threats of bombs on board.
Sources tell Winne that Delta flight 1156 from Portland, Oregon, and Southwest flight 2492 from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, were affected by the threats.
FBI officials say the passengers on both flights will be interviewed and searched before they are allowed to leave the area.
Southwest Airlines released a statement shortly after 3:30 p.m. regarding the threats:
"Due a security situation, the aircraft operating Flight 2492 was taken to a remote area of the airport where Customers and the aircraft are being rescreened. Our number one priority is the Safety of our Customers and People. We cannot comment on the nature of the security situation." 11Alive
