University Of Texas And North Dakota State University Evacuated After Bomb Threats

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal Matters

We have no word on whether or not these two incidents are linked or just pure coincidence, but both the University of Texas at Austin and North Dakota State University were evacuated this morning after receiving a bomb threat.

UT got a call around 8:35 a.m. from a man with a Middle Eastern accent claiming to be a rep from al-Qaeda and threatened that bombs on campus would explode in 90 minutes!

Campus officials took immediate action through every medium possible to make sure the students and staff were safe. A Twitter message read:

Way up north, NDSU required students and employees on ANY part of the campus — including dormitories, downtown buildings and agricultural facilities — to evacuate by 10:15 a.m. so that the bomb threat could be investigated.

As far as we know, no bombs have gone off or have been discovered, but what a horrible way to start off the weekend!

Most recently, the Texas school has decided "all activities except classes will resume at 5 p.m. Buildings may be reentered at noon."

    The bomb threat was made at 8:35am, but the evacuation text was sent at 9:51am…leaving a good 14 minutes to evacuate before the supposed bombs would go off…yeah real immediate action UT…

    I'm a student at UT and was surprised that they took so long to evacuate too. They should've evacuated by 9 at least. Had the bomb threat been real, 14 minutes would not have been enough. Luckily everyone is safe. Hook em \m/
