State Capitols evacuated after bomb threats

At least four state capitol complexes across the U.S. were forced to evacuate Wednesday morning due to a series of bomb threats, officials said.

In Georgia, Gabriel Sterling, an elections official with the Office of the Secretary of State, wrote on X around 8:30 a.m. ET that there had been a bomb threat at the Georgie state Capitol, causing a delayed opening. About 20 minutes later, he tweeted that the complex had reopened after law enforcement officials investigated. An official with the Georgia State Patrol didn’t immediately respond to questions from media outlets.

In Kentucky, Gov. Andy Beshear wrote on X around 10:30 a.m. ET that the state police had evacuated the state Capitol and was investigating a “threat received by the Secretary of State’s Office.”

Officials with the Kentucky State Police didn’t immediately respond to questions.
