The FBI revealed its tally in a tweet Wednesday night.

"Between October 22 and 24, 2018, suspicious packages were received at multiple locations in the New York and Washington, D.C., areas and Florida," the FBI said in a statement.

It added that the packages are being sent for analysis at the FBI Laboratory in Quantico, state of Virginia.
