There no longer is a threat at the West Palm Beach VA Center on Military Trial.

The center had limited access after a threat to the facility's grounds, the VA tweeted late Wednesday afternoon.

The VA said at approximately 2:30 p.m. an allegation was made regarding a potentially unsafe situation on the campus.

To be safe the VA restricted veterans and staff from going in or out of the main facility entrance.

In addition, access to vehicles parked in the east parking garage were also restricted.

PBSO gave the all clear around 5:30 p.m.
