The University of Texas has ordered an evacuation citing threats on campus. The emergency information was posted on the University of Texas website earlier this morning. 

No word yet on what the actual threats are but the emergency posting on their website informed all to stay away from campus and “get as far away as possible.”

The AP has reported that University of Texas director of communications Rhonda Weldon said  ”the university received a call about 8:35 a.m. from a man with a Middle Eastern accent claiming to be with al-Qaida.”

It’s reported that he positioned bombs around campus that were set to go off in 90 minutes. As of right now, no bombs were found.

We’ll keep you updated on the story as more develops.
