Default Another Incident at Port of Miami

CNN is now reporting that Miami Police Bomb Squad is investigating that a device/instrument has tested positive for C4 explosive at the port of Miami. Video feed shows the Majesty of the Seas in frame. There is no indication that the ship has anything to do with the story.

The story is still developing.

Take care,
Mike

They are reporting that it was in a pallet that had been delivered on a truck of provisions.

The pallet has been blown up, by the bomb squad and it looks like there were no explosives. The conclusion seems to be a false positive or trace amounts on the pallet itself. Good to know that the security screening is working.

No incident.

Take care,
Mike

Yes, scary as it is it definitely is good to see that the security measures are working.
