An unattended bag forced the evacuation of a portion of the Shreveport Regional Airport today.

The bag was discovered just after noon today in the baggage claim area of the airport. Evacuations took place across the lower levels of the airport as authorities examined the bag.

An unrelated power-outage occurred at the same time, complicating the issues for those involved. The outage was reportedly related to a nearby transformer that was having issues. Power is once again restored.

The evacuation didn't last long, and all closed sections have been reopened.
