The attack in Turkey is already having an effect here in the United States. More police officers are being added to airports in New York and New Jersey, and also here in Portland.

The Port of Portland said they are increasing police presence in the Portland International Airport terminal, and have a "heightened level of security watchfulness."

Information Officer Steve Johnson told FOX 12 they have many layers of security at PDX including the Port of Portland Police, TSA, private security, cameras, and dogs.

Johnson also said they have "the eyes and ears of hundreds of PDX employees at any given time."

The Port of Portland is asking any travelers to report anything suspicious to police.
