Security Issue at LAX Prompts Closure of 3 Terminals This Morning
Passengers coming in and out of Los Angeles International Airport early this morning found three of the airport's terminals temporarily shut down due to what is being called "a security snafu," according to LA Now.
It was an unguarded exit that prompted the Transportation Security Administration to call for the closure at around 4:30 a.m. However, by 7 this morning, the locations were re-opened. In total, the shut down affected just eight flights by causing slight delays.
The TSA is using videotape taken at the scene of the unguarded exit to determine what happened and for how long the exit was not being appropriately supervised.
