Apparently a hoax or false alarm Whoever reported it is being held for questioning

U.S. shipping terminal reopens after 'dirty bomb' threat

A terminal at the Port of Charleston in South Carolina will reopen and the safety zone has been lifted, the U.S. Coast Guard said on Thursday, after investigating a threat of a "dirty bomb" on a container ship.

It said the "original reporting source of the threat" had been detained for questioning.
The funny thing about this is there was so little coverage. If you didn't know to actively search for the article (Someone posted it on Twitter is the only reason I knew about it) You would not have known anything about it.

IE This news was in effect censored. At least on a national level
