 BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Normal operations are resuming at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport after a threat was investigated.
 
The airport's Facebook page said Sunday night that operations were resuming after authorities secured the airport.
 
Police spokesman Johnny Williams tells al.com nothing was found in a sweep of the airport.
 
Several flights were diverted and the terminal was evacuated after the threat was received in the afternoon. The airport was shut down for more than two hours.
 
Calls to authorities by The Associated Press weren't immediately returned.
