Times Square Bomb Scare: NYC Webcam Captures Evacuation [PICS]

New York’s Times Square was evacuated tonight after a suspicious device was found in an SUV.
Police confirmed that the device was a bomb, but there was no explosion and Times Square was safely evacuated. The story is still developing.
Live webcams are pointed at Times Square 24/7, and that means the events were streamed live on the web. Earthcam (embedded below), currently shows a deserted scene outside TGI Friday’s on 46th St and Broadway. But at 7pm, the live cam showed a packed street — by 8pm, there were only a couple of bystanders. At 9pm, Times Square was deserted save for police vehicles.
The live feed is embedded below, along with captures before and after the evacuation.
