MONDAY, Utah (Good4Utah) - National security expert Tom Panuzio was in studio to discuss how new TSA guidelines regarding electronics will affect those traveling from other countries to the United States. 

The Transportation Security Administration said Sunday that security screeners at overseas airports may ask U.S.-bound passengers to turn on their electronic devices to prove they work and aren't explosive devices.

They won't allow devices without power on board planes. The traveler may then undergo additional screening.

It's part of an update to security measures aimed at combating potential new threats from terrorists in the Middle East and Europe.

Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson directed the TSA last week to enhance security at overseas airports that have direct flights to the United States. The specifics of the enhanced measures weren't originally released, and it isn't known what other measures the TSA may employ.

The TSA also would have to coordinate with the foreign governments which provide security at airports in their countries, along with the airlines and private security companies.
