Port Canaveral closed briefly due to suspicious package

Port Canaveral was locked down for a brief period of time around 2:00pm on Saturday, July 9, when an odor coming from passenger luggage arose suspicion. The area was secured and a Coast Guard robot was sent into to investigate. The odor turned out to be a broken can of hair spray. The Coast Guard reopened the area shortly after.

Carnival Conquest and Celebrity Constellation were the two ships in port at the time.

Her Chicago-born husband, David, left the city for her, and they're now raising their three children (Jacob, Jonah and Lydia) just 12 miles from her hometown. As the Senior Editor of the DIS (wdwinfo.com), Leah spends a lot of time writing about, reading about, and discussing Disney.

She also enjoys shopping, watching movies with her husband and doing crafts with and for her kids.
