New York City officials say they'll be ready and watching for any sign of terrorist disruption at the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

FOX's Gurnal Scott with the story:

Security will be stepped up for the annual parade after an ISIS publication termed the holiday event an "excellent target".

John Miller, in charge of NYPD Counterterrorism called the threat a scare tactic:

(Miller) "Psychological warfare of printing materials that indicate to be afraid. Be very afraid." 

But Miller adds there are assessments annually that warrant changes in tactics:

(Miller) "In this case there are a number of things we've talked about adding in."

As expected, no specifics were given. The publication hinted of attacks sending trucks into crowds like in Nice, France this past summer which killed 86 people.
