Honolulu — US troops gave “all clear” after an unspecified threat urged a one-hour blockade of Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam on Tuesday.
The military news release did not elaborate on a “potential incident” requiring the base to close its entrance to the base and evacuate residents and employees to their designated location at 9:39 am.
“The base remained fully functional, but the Emergency Operations Center has staffed to coordinate the response to the threat,” the afternoon release announced in full clarity.
According to the military, Honolulu police and federal fire department units cooperated in the investigation.
During the investigation, the tour was interrupted while guests at the USS Arizona Memorial and the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum were evacuating to their designated locations. The tour was allowed to resume later.
The blockade affected the summer classes of two public elementary schools at the base. Hawaii Ministry of Education spokesman Derek Inoshita said Hikam Elementary School evacuated students to the chapel, contacted their parents for early pick-up, and Pearl Harbor Kai Elementary School students evacuated there. It was.
