Authorities say they are stepping up security at a Palm Coast hospital after it was placed on lockdown for a few hours.

Flagler County deputies responded to a threat at AdventHealth Palm Coast hospital on Sunday afternoon. Details of the threat were not released.

The lockdown was lifted around 6 p.m. but the Orlando Sentinel reports the sheriff's office said there will be an increased law enforcement presence at the hospital.
