Miami Dade College was evacuated after a bomb threat according to director of communications, Juan Mendieta.

Miami Dade College’s North campus was given the “all clear” after a bomb threat Wednesday afternoon. The campus was evacuated and classes were canceled for the night, as police searched the campus.

Classes were set to resume a normal schedule Thursday morning.

School spokesman Juan Mendieta said the campus was evacuated “in an abundance of caution.”

He said it wasn’t a peak time for the campus.

Miami-Dade police spokesman Detective Daniel Ferrin said college administrators received an email around 2:30 p.m. from an unknown person who claimed there was a bomb in building 1, 2 or 4. Canine units swept the building for a possible explosive.
