FAA ordered 'full ground stop' at ALL west coast airports

The Federal Aviation Administration stopped every plane from taking off or landing at all West Coast airports for seven minutes after North Korea fired a ballistic missile into the sea off Japan.

Monday's incident, known as a full ground stop, was confirmed by officials at San Diego Airport. No explanation was given, but it happened around the same time as the North Korean missile launch, which is not believed to have struck any known target.

The stop only lasted for seven minutes, according to officials at San Diego International Airport.

A spokesperson for the airport said they got the instruction of a national ground stop around 2:30 p.m. pacific time (5:30 p.m. eastern).
