Bomb Threats Prompt Evacuations At Multiple Boston Schools

Police are investigating a number of bomb threats at several schools in the Boston area. So far, none of the threats have been substantiated.

Schools in the Boston area were evacuated Friday following a series of bomb threats.

Chelsea High School was the first that police searched after a written bomb threat was found in the school Thursday night. Authorities believe that threat was a hoax, and the school held class as normal Friday with added security. (Video via WFXT)

But Friday morning, several bomb threats prompted evacuations and lockdowns at two schools in Arlington; two middle schools in Weymouth; Falmouth High School; and Boston College High School. (Video via WHDH)

Authorities are still investigating the incident, but no evidence suggests any of the bomb threats were legitimate.
