Among the travelers caught up in the mayhem were Josh Gad and Lester Holt, who both tweeted about the pandemonium that fortunately turned out to be a false alarm.

The Frozen actor and the NBC Nightly News host both evacuated the airport around 9 p.m., after word of a shooting threat spread.
Even though it turned out there was no real danger, Gad — who was with his children at the time — said the incident was still "awful," sharing on Twitter:
