Ship Boarded in Charleston SC (False Alarm)

I hate to be alarmist but Patterico is pretty reliable.

Looks like she may have stopped in NY on the return, I'm not sure.

Update: Reports this morning is that its all clear.

Coast Guard Lt. J.B. Zorn told NBC that an anonymous call was received, followed within minutes by a YouTube video with similar information regarding a potential threat on board the vessel.

The Coast Guard twitter account said the original reporting source of the threat had been detained by authorities for questioning.
