Apparently the Department of Homeland Security and MDOT haven’t yet figured out that Terrorists don’t make threats, they just blow shit up and tell you about your sins later. The Harbor Tunnel and the Fort McHenry Tunnel are currently closed due to “security precaution” :
NBC reporter Pete Williams said the source of the information came from an overseas source with a good track record that the threat came from “radical Islamic group”. Williams said national security agencies doubted the veracity of the credibility of the information. He said they decided that since there was a specific time associated with the threat that they would show caution and close the tunnels.
So, the tunnels are currently shut. Baltimore traffic is going to be an abject nightmare until everything’s open and clear. If you’re headed up to Charm City tonight, you might want to think about leaving, oh, I dunno, right about now.
