Jan. 9, 2004 - The Homeland Security Department (DHS) this afternoon lowered the national threat level from a "high" to "elevated" (or "code yellow") risk of terrorist attack- but "code orange" restrictions remain in place for airports and airspace.
AOPA contacted homeland security officials today and learned that they are still assessing necessary security levels for all transportation modes. The alert status remains "high" for airports, airlines and some cities. DHS is currently evaluating each individual TFR imposed during code orange. There may be decisions late this afternoon or over the weekend on the Chicago and Valdez (Alaska) TFRs, and Washington ADIZ procedures. AOPA will report any changes as soon as they are known.
