One Phoenix flight diverted due to San Antonio evacuation

An evacuation order at San Antonio International Airport affected two flights between Texas and Phoenix on Wednesday.

That flight was diverted to Austin, according to FlightView.com. Four flights were scheduled to depart San Antonio destined for Phoenix, one of which was delayed.

Operations will continued as normal at Phoenix Sky Harbor.

San Antonio International Airport spokesman Rich Johnson said that someone called the airport making a "very specific" threat but did not elaborate. He said passengers inside the terminal were herded onto the tarmac and that arriving planes are staying parked away from the gates.

Johnson says the evacuation order was called at 2:35 p.m. CST.

San Antonio police and several federal agencies investigated the threat.
