Security increased at Baltimore tunnels

BALTIMORE - Travelers driving through Baltimore will see tighter security around the tunnels thanks to a 911 call Thursday morning.

A spokesperson for the Maryland Transportation Authority says someone called 911 shortly after 6:30 saying someone was driving thru one of the tunnels with explosives.

They say at no point did that person say they were going to blow up the tunnels.

As a result of the call, MTA increased security at both the Harbor and Fort McHenry Tunnels and say they are ready to respond immediately if there is an imminent threat.
