CATHERINE CALLAWAY, CNN ANCHOR: Hello, everyone, we have some breaking news out of Washington state tonight, as Seattle's Coast Guard today apparently has issued a warning of a potential terrorist threat to maritime interests around Puget Sound. A Coast Guard lieutenant, Scott Kasad (ph) is apparently saying that this was based on information from the federal government, and that there is a credible threat from swimmers and divers there. He also says that officials are telling the local port officials there and maritime business owners to be on guard for any suspicious activity in that area.

No further details on possible targets in that region, but you probably know that FBI agents last week, as we have reported, visited scuba diving shops. They're in Washington state, also around the country, as they were asking about any suspicious people who may have inquired about underwater demolition training.

Once again, the Seattle Coast Guard today has issued a warning of a potential terrorist threat to the maritime interests around Puget Sound. We are going to try to get more information on this for you, and bring it to you as we get the information.
