In Vapor Wake By Z_Lynch / March 23, 2016


Security remains ramped up throughout New York City Wednesday after explosions in the Belgian capital of Brussels killed at least 34 people in the airport and the subway.

"The New York City Police Department is closely monitoring the situation in Belgium and is in close contact with our international partners and with the FBI," the NYPD said in a statement.

The agency said there was "no known indication that the attack has any nexus to New York City," but it was deploying additional counterterrorism units to crowded areas and transit locations across the city "out of an abundance of caution."
