Apparently there was a bomb threat in one or two Dulles parking garages tonight, but it is affecting arriving flights.

NBC-Washington says on Twitter that flights were evacuated too: "#Breaking Passenger at #Dulles tells News4 that pilot told everyone on plane there's a TSA emergency - must immediately evacuate."

In reverse order from MWAA on Twitter, which is the airport opeator.

If you are flying #IAD Dulles tonight, check flight status with your airline. Airport is open and operating, but several flts delayed.

#IAD Dulles Arriving flights proceeding to gate areas; some had been temporarily held. Terminals and runways are open.

The economy and hourly lots are OPEN at #IAD Dulles if you are driving/parking here. And the terminals are open.

Terminals open at #IAD Dulles, parking garages temp closed for a police investigation. Several arriving flights delayed; will update.

And most recent update at 9:48pm " #IAD Dulles terminals, runways, flights operating normally. Daily garages remain clsd for police investigation. Hourly & Econ lots open. "

Just to update, typical media getting it wrong, MWAA says no planes were evacuated:

" Contrary to reports, planes were not "evacuated" at #IAD Dulles. Flights are operating normally with some delays from earlier this eve. "

More like a passenger who doesn't listen to the whole announcement giving the media inaccurate info that they publish right away because zOMGwehavetobefirst!!!!111oneoneone

The pilot probably said there was an emergency and they were evacuating the airport, or something to that effect.
