Honolulu (AP) — US Army “All clear” After an unspecified threat prompted an hour-long blockade of Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam on Tuesday.

Military news releases “Potential incident” As a result, the base had to close its entrance and evacuate residents and employees to their designated location at 9:39 am.

“The base remained fully functional, but the Emergency Operations Center staffed to coordinate the response to the threat.” The afternoon release said it announced an all-clear.

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 DOE spokesman Derek Inoshita said Hickam Elementary School had evacuated the students to the chapel, contacted their parents for an early pick-up, and the students at Pearl Harbor Kai Elementary School had evacuated there.
