A bomb threat involving a JetBlue flight from Seattle that caused delays at Long Beach Airport turned out to be a hoax.

Emergency responders were called to the airport Friday night after JetBlue received a threat on Twitter regarding Flight 1007.

Once it arrived at Long Beach, the plane as well as the passengers and their bags were searched. Authorities said nothing was found, and the threat was determined to be a hoax.

Two delayed flights have since departed and operations at the airport were back to normal.
