(Reuters) - Charleston International Airport in South Carolina was evacuated on Friday after a suspicious package was found at the airport, police said.

A report of a suspicious package was made at 5:23 a.m. local time and forced the entire airport to be evacuated as authorities investigated the situation, a dispatcher at the Charleston Police Department said.

"Authorities are investigating a suspicious package in the airport. No other details available at this time," the airport said on its Twitter account.
