Wave of bomb threats causes evacuations, anxiety nationwide
The FBI issued a statement in which it said, "We are aware of the recent bomb threats made in cities around the country, and we remain in touch with our law enforcement partners to provide assistance. As always, we encourage the public to remain vigilant and to promptly report suspicious activities which could represent a threat to public safety."
Similar threats were reported in New York, Florida, Illinois, Utah, Texas, Massachusetts and other states. Some of the emails had the subject line: "Think Twice." The disruptive emails forced some schools to close early. Other locations were evacuated as police searched the properties.
The New York City Police Department said the threats sent Thursday were meant to cause disruption and compel recipients into sending money and are not considered credible.

Somebody called in this morning to Columbine High School here in Co, and stated they had placed explosives around the campus. 22 schools on lockout. Cops say there's no reason to believe it's real, but they are investigating.
