This morning, the Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children (WPSBC) received a bomb threat. Now I’ve never heard of the school being terrorized like this throughout my attendance there during the 1970s, or at any time before that or since, until today. But with the rash of bomb threats received by the nearby University of Pittsburgh and surrounding schools, I suppose that it was only a matter of time before some nut would try something like that with WPSBC. Hopefully they’ll make arrests soon.
At any rate, the buildings at WPSBC were evacuated for only a short time, and daily classes and administrative activities quickly resumed. The Pittsburgh police conducted a search throughout the entire school campus, but found no bombs or any other suspicious-looking devices. Will update this post with any new information that we receive.
