"Get as far away as possible," doesn't sound like a drill. Maybe a bomb threat?

yeah it does sound like some kind of bomb threat but it could be any number of things

nvm, they say it was a general bomb threat on campus

It sounds like it is a bomb threat.

The University of Texas evacuated all of its campus buildings today after a man claiming to be affiliated with Al Qaeda called in a bomb threat, according to a message sent to students by university officials.

aparently the bombs were supposed to go off at 10 am local time. 33 minutes past that so i think its safe to assume this was fake

Bomb threats clear Texas, N. Dakota state campuses

Yes.. This is due to a Bomb Threat to The University . Not Single but the university had received multiple bomb threats to multiple buildings.

The University of Texas at Austin has ordered an evacuation of all buildings on campus because of a bomb threat. "Immediately evacuate ALL buildings and get as far away as possible," the university says on its website.

Update at 11:31 a.m. ET: North Dakota State U. orders all employees, students off campus after receiving bomb threat, the Associated Press reports.

Update at 11:14 a.m. ET: KXAN-TV reports that the university's Director of Communications, Rhonda Weldon, says the university got a call around 8:35 a.m. local time from a male with a middle eastern accent claiming to have placed bombs all over campus. The caller claimed to be from the Al-Qaeda terrorist organization and that the bombs would go off in 90 minutes, KXAN reports.

President Williams Powers has been notified, and officials arenow evacuating all of the buildings out of an abundance of caution.

Update at 11:12 a.m. ET:A UT official tells the American-Statesman that the university had received multiple bomb threats to multiple buildings.

Not sure what the heck is going on?? Some one planted a bomb and called the university to tell that he planted bomb and provide the timescales like it will go off in 90 minutes.

I want it to be Hoax. Now a days Terrorits are so good guys.. at least to call the university to inform...

I work right across the street from Sam Houston State University, so far no threats but I'm keeping an eye on things. Usually terrorists don't call in about their threats beforehand do they? Doesn't it just happen, then they take credit?
