ORIGINAL: While reporting that bombs were sent to Bill and Hillary Clinton‘s home and Barack Obama‘s office, CNN had to evacuate their own building due to a “suspicious package” that was found inside the mailroom. Anchors Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto were on the air when the fire alarm in the Time Warner Center went off, and had to leave the building during their broadcast. Once outside, they continued reporting live with cellphones while law enforcement responded to the CNN New York bureau.

CNN tweeted an update about the suspicious package. “The device sent to Time Warner Center was constructed with a pipe and wires, according to an NYPD source. Law enforcement authorities are treating the device as a real explosive. The device was discovered in the mailroom of Time Warner Center in New York,”the tweet said.

Harlow and Sciutto both shared photos of police vehicles outside of the building after their evacuation. Sciutto also revealed that 58th St. east of 9th Ave. has been closed off while a “containment vessel for explosive device” arrived on the scene.
