The FAA said that the notice was issued in response to a rocket strike which landed approximately one mile" from the airport Tuesday morning.

The report further said that the FAA will continue to monitor and evaluate the situation and that updated instructions will be provided to U.S. airlines as soon as conditions permit, but no later than 24 hours" from when the suspension was ordered.
