'All buildings are safe': Eastern Florida State College campuses reopen after reported bomb threats


Officials said two Eastern Florida State College campuses were temporarily evacuated Wednesday afternoon as a precaution because of reported bomb threats. 

Both Cocoa and Palm Bay campuses were evacuated around 12:15 p.m., according to the college, and reopened about an hour later after law enforcement conducted a search at both campuses and found the threats to be unfounded.


"All buildings are safe for return and on-campus classes have resumed," the college said on Twitter shortly before 1:30 p.m. 

The college said the FBI believes the local bomb threats are part of a nationwide series of threats that have proven to be hoaxes originating from Ethiopia.
