Things are back to normal at JFK Airport after a terminal had to be evacuated Saturday morning.
The Transportation Security Administration closed Terminal 7 for about two hours after TSA workers discovered that a metal detector malfunctioned, which meant a number of people went through security without being properly screened.
The terminal was emptied, and passengers were rescreened.
Port Authority officials say they were able to get the terminal back up by 11:45 a.m.
Terminal 7 is used by several airlines, including United and British Airways.
