Shelter in place lifted at US Navy base after bomb threat

A bomb threat at Naval Station Norfolk prompted a temporary shelter in place order for parts of the base that has since been lifted.

The station said in a statement that someone called in the threat to 911 early Wednesday. Additional working dogs were brought in to sweep areas on base.

Officials say one dog detected something on a vehicle in the Pier 14 area. But after an extensive inspection, the bomb squad determined that it was not a threat.

Officials say normal operations have resumed.
