As reported by the NY Times, Terminal C at Newark International Airport was evacuated last night and all travelers were forced to re-screen through security. Yikes! That must have taken forever!
Newark Terminal Evacuated, Passengers Forced To Repeat Security Screening
“Terminal C was evacuated around 7 p.m. when a man entered the terminal through a secure hallway exit door near Gate 121. The man, who was not immediately identified, was stopped by Customs and Border Protection agents and was turned over to the police of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, a spokesman for the authority said.”

I honestly can’t imagine what kind of chaos that this incident must have provided for travelers who were already in the terminal waiting to board their flights!
Very surprisingly, “The Federal Aviation Administration reported no delays in departures or arrivals.”
No mention in the article who this guy was and what he was up to when he caused this incident. Stay tuned!
