I just heard from someone that Terminal 6 at JFK was evacuated because of a suspicious package and that the rest of JFK was sealed off.

Anyone know anything about this?

Maybe because all of their flights are delayed since about 9:30pm EST and nothing has gone out since then.

Yep it looks like something happened but nothing serious. Flights were delayed about an hour but they're starting to go out again.

I wonder what happened.

Fox5 just reported that a fake grenade was found in the terminal.

Just got back to my office after evacuation. It was a false alarm, a device that looked like a grenade was found in carry-on during screening and TSA evacuated the terminal only, not JFK. Once bomb squad checked it out, everyone was let back in.

no further info at this time other than that I am thawing out after being outside so long!

Well, at least in this case, props to the TSA for finding it during the screening process. Every now and then they can get something right.

Yes it was a fake hand grenade. The whole terminal was evacuated to the front of the building for about an hour and a half. It caused a major headache for inbound flights. Coming in from Florida we sat on jfk's tarmac for over an hour waiting for a gate to open.
