The Statue of Liberty and Liberty Island were deemed safe Friday afternoon following an evacuation due to a bomb threat.
Someone called 911 on Friday morning and said "they were going to blow up the Statue of Liberty," according to a statement by the National Park Service. The Associated Press reported that a bomb-sniffing dog indicated something suspicious in a locker area.
Though the threat turned out to be false, trips to the island have been canceled for the rest of the day.
This is a developing story and has been updated.
