RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Richmond International Airport has reopened its terminal after a threatening phone call that prompted an evacuation.
The airport announced the terminal's opening in a posting on Twitter shortly after 9:45 a.m. Tuesday.
Virginia State Police Sgt. Thomas Molnar says the airport received a threatening phone call several hours earlier.
Police dogs were brought in to check the terminal and parking decks for explosives. The airport says nothing dangerous was found.
Molnar says airport workers will resume normal operating procedures.
Most flights were held while the airport was checked. Molnar says five flights were permitted to land, although they were to be held short of the terminal.
The Federal Aviation Administration has been notified.
