But that’s not all. A New York Fire Department spokesman said “undetonated explosive devices were found.” The schools in the area were immediately notified in order to put the children to safety. Jen Psaki, spokeswoman for the White House, said on her Twitter account that “the President of the United States has been notified and that White House teams are in contact with the Mayor of New York”.
