Police are investigating a suspicious package found at the Denver International Airport on Tuesday afternoon, airport officials announced on Twitter. All staff and passengers were ordered to temporarily evacuate a section of the main terminal due to the potential security threat.

In a series of tweets, the airport announced that flights are still departing but that delays are possible. Cars are currently forbidden from pulling up to the west side of the terminal.

Airports across the country are on heightened alert Tuesday after bombings struck Brussel’s airport and a subway station, killing 31 and injuring 181.
