FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — Authorities at Fort Hood say they've reopened traffic in and out of the Central Texas Army post.

Post officials said Thursday that they closed inbound traffic due to a telephone call, but aren't saying what the call was about. Spokesman Col. Chris Garver says the post will "take prudent measures when necessary."

KWTX-TV (http://bit.ly/1sZNoo7) previously reported that authorities this afternoon were letting cars leave post, but not enter.

Authorities did not immediately release further details about the closure of traffic.

Fort Hood is about 70 miles north of Austin.
