EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP - The Atlantic City Airport was briefly evacuated Wednesday afternoon due to a possible suspicious package.

Travelers tell News 12 New Jersey that they were told to evacuate just after 3:30 p.m. as a precaution.

Photos sent to the News 12 newsroom show hundreds of people waiting outside the airport.

Various posts on social media say that dump trucks and parking cones are blocking off the entrances to the airport to prevent anyone else from coming in.

New Jersey state police say that bag in question was cleared and nothing dangerous was found.
