    JAX has been evacuated after authorities found two suspicious packages.

    Airport spokesman Michael Stewart was quoted by the Florida Times-Union on Tuesday night as saying that police had found a suspicious package in the terminal and another in a parking garage.

    Authorities tweeted news of the evacuation on the airport's official Twitter site, but only said that the airport had been evacuated "due to police activity regarding suspicious" packages.

    Stewart was quoted by the newspaper as saying that he did not know what was in the packages. He also could not confirm whether anyone had been arrested.

    There have been no reports of injuries or damage. Jacksonville police have blocked off the entrance to the airport.

    Airport officials also tweeted that passengers on inbound flights currently on the ground would be bused to offsite hotels as transportation became available.
