Schools across America are being evacuated quickly today, as bomb threats have been called in across America!
This is now the era we live in- Terrorists are becoming more creative than ever… This is evil:
A wave of threats directed at schools across the nation Monday forced authorities to lock down buildings or evacuate students.
The threats, which appear to be driven by automated calls, have been directed at elementary, middle and high schools in states across at least four time zones.
Some districts reported that the calls included a bomb threat while others just described the calls as “threatening.”
The calls were reported in California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Utah, Vermont, Washington and Wisconsin.
Ken Trump, a national school security expert and president of a school security consulting firm, said Monday’s nationwide bomb hoaxes have the hallmarks of swatting.

These “swatting” hoaxes are sinister, and set up off mass panics. There’s no way for authorities to know the difference between a real threat and a fake bomb threat.
This is a breaking news story. We will update this as more details become available.
