The Port of Palm Beach says it has increased communications in response to the attacks in Brussels.

While the port has not brought in additional employees, it has increased communications with law enforcement and the U.S. Coast Guard

The port has enhanced walk-throughs and visual security checks on all cargo shipments both in and out of the facility.

Most of the shipments are from the Caribbean so it's considered just a precaution.

The cruise ship that sails to the Bahamas is in Freeport and returns tomorrow.

And Tri-Rail passengers might notice more security on the commuter line because of the terror attacks in Belgium. A Tri-Rail spokesperson says passengers will see extra patrols.
