NORAD evacuatedNORAD evacuated 1500 employees after five suspicious package was found.

The packages has been removed for further testing. NORAD was evacuated for 4.5 hours and the staff were allowed back after the packages were removed.

Employees became suspicious because something about the packages looked “out of place,” said Jeff Bohn, a spokesman at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, where the North American Aerospace Command is based.

Bohn declined to say what the packages looked like or what appeared to be amiss.

Tests performed on the packages ruled out chemical, biological and radiological agents, Bohn said. The packages were then removed and were undergoing other tests, he said.

Bohn said he did not know how the packages arrived or whether they had been screened before they were delivered. He said that would be part of the investigation.

NORAD is a joint U.S.-Canadian command that defends the skies over both nations and monitors sea approaches.
