Update: Bomb Threats Issued to NH and MA Schools

An update in a story we brought you Tuesday where a bomb threat was called in by an unidentified male to Sunapee Middle High School, forcing an evacuation of staff who were there for a workshop.

Authorities say similar threats were made at two other schools in NH Tuesday as well, those being Plymouth and Farmington. The threats at Sunapee and Plymouth were made by what was described as a pre-recorded message over the phone, while the one in Farmington was found written on a wall in the boys bathroom.

In addition, around a dozen schools in Massachusetts also received automated bomb threat calls Tuesday possibly from the same source, saying that there were explosives in their respective buildings.

The FBI is currently investigating the source of these calls and Sunapee Middle High School was evacuated for about an hour as police swept the building.

No students were at the school that day because no classes were in session, but around 50 staff members were their attending a workshop.

Class resumed on a regular schedule Wednesday.
