UT Austin campus evacuated due to bomb threat
The University of Texas in Austin is being evacuated.
The university posted this message to their website and Twitter shortly before 10 a.m.
"Evacuation due to threats on campus. Immediately evacuate ALL buildings and get as far away as possible. More information to come."
NBC News has learned the university received a call at about 8:35 a.m. from a man with a middle eastern accent who claimed he was with Al Qaeda and that he had placed bombs all over campus that would go off in 90 minutes.
President William Powers was notified and it was decided to evacuate all of the buildings out of an abundance of caution.
