Bomb threats at seven Mississippi university, college, and community college campuses have now been cleared.

The seven campuses that received false threats were Mississippi State’s Starkville campus, Southern Miss’ Hattiesburg campus, William Carey University’s Traditions campus, Meridian Community College, as well as three of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s campuses.

Mississippi State was the latest school to receive a threat with an “all clear” given at 1:19 p.m.

“While incidents of this nature are the subject of frequent MSU Crisis Action Team training and drills, I am extremely grateful for the prompt and professional actions of MSU’s first responders today,” Mississippi State President Mark E. Keenum said. “They work hard every day to keep our students, faculty, staff and visitors safe, and I am proud of them.”

Thursday’s bomb threats at six Mississippi schools come just one day after 13 schools in Alabama also received threats.
