Terrorist Threat Shuts Down Florida Highway

Aired September 13, 2002 - 07:55   ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.


BILL HEMMER, CNN ANCHOR: Quickly back to Florida, the facts as we have them right now.
Two cars pulled over in the early hours in southern Florida, right along the I-75 route there of Alligator Alley, about a 20-mile stretch right now shut down A no-fly zone has been enacted.

Bomb-sniffing dogs have responded there after a woman in Georgia apparently overheard a conversation about some sort of terrorist plot that was aimed for Miami, Florida.

All of these facts again, and not entirely clear right now, but authorities have responded. A few moments ago apparently they did detonate some material that was found inside of those cars.

And I mentioned the bomb-sniffing dogs. Apparently, they had what they call a "positive hit," when they did respond to these two vehicles.

So, authorities are searching that right now, trying to sort out fact from fiction right now in southern Florida, and we are, too -- Paula.

PAULA ZAHN, CNN ANCHOR: As soon as we have more information, we'll bring it to you. Thanks, Bill.
