UPDATE: Normal operations have resumed at Birmingham airport. Officials say a security sweep found nothing.
ORIGINAL STORY: CBS News is reporting that a terminal in the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International airport has been evacuated due to an unspecified threat. Some planes are being diverted.
The airport's Facebook page said the terminal had been evacuated Sunday because of a threat but didn't elaborate.
Police spokesman Johnny Williams told the Associated Press he and other officers were on their way to the airport Sunday evening but didn't have any details on what prompted the evacuation. A call and email to the Birmingham Airport Authority wasn't immediately returned.
WBRC-TV reported that the station's meteorologist was on the scene and confirmed that several planes from multiple airlines were parked away from the gates.
