The terminal at Modesto Airport was evacuated this morning due to 9 emailed bomb threats received by the city of Modesto between 4AM and 8AM this morning.

As of noon time, the building was still being searched.

50 people were evacuated at the commercial terminal and at least 1 in-bound flight was cancelled while a departure was been delayed. I'm sure more flights will be disrupted.

As of a report at 12:20 this afternoon, searchers had moved to the private aircraft area with an FBO building being evacuated.

Just a followup, MOD was closed just after 8AM to about 3PM. That means nearly the entire outbound schedule of UAX to SFO and LAX was cancelled. Of course no bomb was found.

whoa, I flew out of there to LAX on Monday morning. Guess I was lucky to miss it by a day.

That terminal is tiny though. They could have it searched in about 10 minutes.
