Breaking: NYC Bound Bus Evacuated In NH After Suspicious Device Reported

This is unfolding in downtown Portsmouth, NH – an area near and dear to my heart.

All passengers but one have left a bus at the center of a bomb scare in Portsmouth, and the police are speaking with the remaining one.

Police said the incident involved a Greyhound bus that was en route from Portland, Maine, to Boston and then on to New York. A passenger alerted the bus driver that a suspicious device may be on the bus, and the bus driver was able to pull over and get off to call for help. Portsmouth, and the police are speaking with the remaining one.

The 17 passengers remained on board, but police said they had not been told to stay on the bus, and they weren’t sure why no one else had come off.

About two hours after the bus was stopped, the passengers finally began to get off. They exited the bus with their hands over their heads and walked down the street until they were met by what appeared to be a SWAT officer.

At least two people were led away from the area in handcuffs, but police were not calling them suspects. A passenger was also still on the bus and was being questioned.

This situation is fluid and I don’t want to see Janet Incompetano’s mug on my TV later telling me this is a “lone wolf” or a “one off” before the facts are known.
