Bomb squads from Rockland and Westchester counties have cleared Rockland Community College to reopen after a bomb threat.
The school was evacuated this morning after the college received an email about "a bomb that would explode on campus today."
Students, staff and administrators were told to leave the campus, located on 145 College Road. School officials say there are normally about 3,000 people on campus at any time.
The squads went room by room searching for any evidence, but nothing was found.
Even though the email came in anonymously, police say they have enough to work with as they trace back the note to see where it came from.
School officials say that while day classes were canceled as a safety precaution, the school would be open for evening classes.
