NANTICOKE — Luzerne County Community College was evacuated Thursday morning due to a threat, according to police.
Luzerne County Community College in Nanticoke was deserted. Classrooms and parking lots were cleared out because of a threat in an email.
A text message was sent out to LCCC students around 9:30 a.m. telling everyone to evacuate the buildings and move their cars off campus, because of a computer threat.
Campus security locked most of the gates leading onto the Nanticoke campus.
Officials now say all of the LCCC campuses are closed because of a threatening email.
“No one really freaked out. We just got up and (it) was all a little confused but got up and left and did what we were told. It’s kind of sad,” said LCCC student Eric Novroski. “I’m here to learn, can’t do that when this happens.”
LCCC officials tell us Nanticoke police and the FBI are investigating.
LCCC is closed today Thurs Mar 27 at 9:30am due to a computer threat. Please do not go to the campus today until further notified.—
