(HIGHLAND, Ks.) Students were evacuated at the Highland Community College campus in Highland Wednesday morning following a bomb threat.


Craig Mosher, vice-president for Institutional Advancement at HCC, made the announcement in a press release shortly after 10:00 a.m. Wednesday.

"While there is a question about its credibility, the safety of students and employees is paramount," the release stated.

He said students were being evacuated to safe locations until campus buildings can be secured.

Mosher said finals for the remainder of the day are postponed until further notice.

Summer-like weather has taken hold and will stick around for the next several days. For tonight, an isolated shower or storm is possible early on but we should dry out overnight. Lows will be mild in the upper 60s.
