I've watched this while the television is on mute as I go about my chores. It's been going on for nearly an hour with very little news to date.

911 call saying Metro bus had a bomb on board and if the bus went onto the airstation, the bomb would explode.

No news of people on bus.
ROBOTs on their way TO the bus...

Breaking News - FBI Responds to Threat Involving HRT Bus that Entered Naval Station Norfolk

The FBI is responding to an incident at Naval Station Norfolk. There are conflicting reports on the situation. But there are reports that threats were made about an HRT bus entering the Navy base.

The Hampton Roads Transit president has told WAVY News 10 that they received a call to their transportation center. The caller made a threat that if a specific HRT bus made it onto the Navy base; somebody was going to die.

The bus was able to get on the base. Officials have stopped the bus at the fleet recreation park and have it contained. Norfolk police, FBI, NCIS, Navy Special Forces Bomb Squad, and other agency are investigating.

Not sure what to make of this - not enough data yet...

First reaction is, not terror. Hadji wouldn't announce it, they'd just pop it and watch the cameras gleefully roll.

Second reation is: dress rehearsal?

Praying for anyone ON that bus, anyone near it - Dear Lord, protect them and keep them safe.

NYPD guest analyst just mentioned that it "could be a hoax". That's the most positive "hope" I've heard yet.

Peach, are you near there?

I worked at Dam Neck, and at LANTFLT when it was CINCLANTFLT.

Hi, Truthie. I'm in SC but monitoring on FNC.

I think the scroll at the bottom of the screen said it was an anonymous threat phoned in and those seem to fizzle into nothing, thankfully.

May you have all the blessings in the New Year, truthie.

Good to see ya FRiend.

They arent too excited about it on the local news. The state police and others are there now trying to sort it out.

The bus is in a secure area and apparently the passengers have been removed, from what I understand.

Negative, looks like the bus in question is under cordon, and the bomb-bots are deployed.

That's all we've got, for the moment.

The Sailor just walked through the door. I guess he didn't have to stay long. I told him what was happening and he told me that this was the first he's heard of it.

He called back to work and they all think it's probably a hoax. (As many have pointed out here.) Anyways, he said if it was truly a threat..the base would have gone in lockdown and evacuation mode. (I'm probably missing the whole correct military wording for it.)

My neighbor works near The Sailor and she's still at work. So? I'm going to continue praying.

Thank you everyone!

jm, thanks for the info that the passengers have been removed.

Peach - Happy New Year to you - may we all have a happy and healthy New Year! Once again, I am hoping that by the flip of a calendar page, that circumstances will change, but it does change my perspective and my hope, for some reason. So, I'm looking forward to writing "2005" and leaving the pain and disappointment of 2004 behind, if not the Bills! LOL!

I just drove a friend to the base chapel at Little Creek and had no problem getting in. If the Navy thought they had a real situation they'd clamp everything down. Then again I've been back about 20 minutes. Maybe I missed the clamp down.

BAD CHAD! BAD! Hehe!

I've been teaching my boys not to refer to anyone in the Navy by their "nicknames" that their Dad and his buddies use.

And my oldest just read what you posted. Hehe! The hubby thought it was funny as well. So? I guess I'll have to have another little discussion about this.
