Miami-Dade Aviation spokeswoman Suzy Trutie said they’ve increased the presence of uniformed officers, K-9 patrols and roving perimeter patrols.
They’re also asking all passengers and employees to vigilant and report anything that seems out of the ordinary.
At Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport there have been no changes. Airport spokesman Gregory Meyers said they have always been on a “heightened level” of security.
Belgian officials say 30 people were killed, more than 130 injured when two bombs exploded at the airport and a third explosion happened at the Maelbeek Metro station in central Brussels, very near the U.S. Embassy and European Union headquarters.
The airport has been closed, all flights into it or out of it have been canceled or diverted.
