Passengers evacuated a terminal of Newark Liberty International Airport on Monday night before officials declared there was no threat in the area. 

The incident at the Terminal A-3 Satellite was deemed a false alarm, the airport tweeted, though it’s unclear what caused the disruption.

All passengers and employees were rescreened as a precautionary measure, officials said. 

The announcement comes after video posted to Twitter showed travelers quickly leaving the terminal with some luggage left behind in the hurried exit.


The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the airport, did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.
