PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – Local law enforcement and transportation administrators said Monday morning there are no known threats to the metro following several explosions in New York and New Jersey.

Roberta Altstadt, a spokesperson with TriMet, said “we are in communication with the Transportation Security Administration and currently there are no known threats to our area related to the incidents on the east coast and Minnesota.”

Sgt. Pete Simpson, a spokesperson with the Portland Police Bureau, said “At this time, we have no information to indicate Portlanders are at any risk as a result of the terrible events in Minnesota and the New York/New Jersey area. As always, residents are asked to contact law enforcement about any suspicious activity.”

A spokesperson for the FBI in Oregon said a statement from the local field office was not immediately available.
