FBI investigating report of dirty bomb on ship in Wando Terminal South Carolina...

This is serious business.  Shipping has always been a soft target for years.
Live 5 News reports officials with the Coast Guard say a person is now being questioned by authorities in relation to a potential threat at the Wando Terminal Wednesday night. 

Coast Guard officials confirmed Thursday morning via Twitter four containers had been scanned and cleared. Fourteen agents with radiation detection technology investigated these containers and found no signs of radiation, officials said.

Officials have not yet released details about the person being questioned or what connection he or she has to the threat itself.

The terminal will be reopened Thursday morning and a safety zone has been lifted.
