The Secret Service said Wednesday it found two "potential explosive devices" in mail sent to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in New York and the home of former President Obama in Washington, D.C.
 
The devices were "immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures" and "were appropriately handled as such," the Secret Service said in a statement. Obama and Clinton "did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them," according to the agency.
 
Separately, the Time Warner building in New York City was evacuated after reports of a suspicious package to CNN.
 
"We are working with authorities to determine the severity of the situation," CNN president Jeff Zucker said in a memo to staff after his network's anchors had to leave their studio to broadcast from the streets outside their building after an alarm went off on air.
