Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge received a bomb threat that was called into 911 around 10:30 this morning, a spokesperson said. The university sent an emergency text alert ordering the campus to be evacuated.
“Everybody has been asked to evacuate campus,” spokesperson Holly Cullen said.
LSU mass communications junior Kevin Thibodeaux said he was on campus when the text alert reached his inbox at 11:32 a.m. He walked into a building and someone told him the campus was being evacuated.
“Most people are taking it not too seriously,” Thibodeaux said. “The traffic over here is probably the craziest part.”
Thibodeaux said many people are stuck in traffic by Tiger Stadium.
