No threats at SUNY following evacuation in TX, ND

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - State officials say there were no reports of threats at State University of New York campuses after other scares at colleges in Texas and North Dakota.
    
Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the safety of students is a top priority. There are 64 campuses in the SUNY system with more than 465,000 students.
    
University campuses in Texas and North Dakota were cleared Friday after phoned-in bomb threats prompted evacuations and officials warned students and faculty to leave quickly. No bombs were found on either campus by early afternoon. It was not clear whether the threats were related.
    
Cuomo said security officials in his administration and at SUNY are monitoring the situation. They have advised campuses to be ready to activate emergency plans if needed.
