FBI reports -Rainbow Bridge between US, Canada closed following vehicle explosion
The terror alert level is the highest it has been in years. An explosion in the Niagara Falls area has been reported as an attempted terror attack. Kathy Hochul, the governor of New York, is on her way to the scene.
New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said, “At my direction, the New York State Police is actively working with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force to monitor all points of entry to New York. I am traveling to Buffalo to meet with law enforcement and emergency responders and will update New Yorkers when more information becomes available.”
A press conference is likely scheduled for later today. President Biden and the White House have been alerted to the attack.
The FBI has reported that two people were killed and a border patrol officer was injured in the attempted terror attack.
It was reported that the van was heading to Canada. The bridge areas are closed until further notice.
The Rainbow Bridge, a magnificent structure that spans the Niagara River, connects the cities of Niagara Falls, New York, in the United States, and Niagara Falls, Ontario, in Canada. This iconic international bridge is not only a vital transportation link but also a symbol of the enduring friendship and close ties between the United States and Canada. Completed in 1941, the Rainbow Bridge is a stunning feat of engineering, featuring graceful arches and a vibrant rainbow-colored illumination that comes to life after sunset.
The FBI is investigating a possible terror attack after a car explosion at the border crossing between Canada and the United States killed two people, triggering border closures on one of the busiest holiday travel days. The explosion happened on the Rainbow Bridge in Niagara Falls, New York, around 11.15am local time, according to the city mayor’s office. The incident is being investigated as an attempted terror attack, sources told Fox News. Explosives were uncovered in the vehicle and two occupants are dead, the sources said. The occupants of the car died after the car sped towards the US side of the crossing from Canada, the Niagara Gazette reported. The car had passed through one border checkpoint where it was selected for a secondary check, according to police sources, cited by US media. #breakingnews #niagarafalls #explosion #niagarafallscanada
As travelers’ journey across its expanse, they are treated to breathtaking views of the world-famous Niagara Falls, making the crossing a truly memorable experience. The bridge facilitates the movement of people and goods between the two nations, embodying the spirit of cooperation and unity that characterizes the relationship between the United States and Canada.
