Several buildings and streets on Yale University’s campus in New Haven, Connecticut, were evacuated and closed on November 5 amid a bomb threat, according to local news reports.

This footage filmed by Gabriela Rassi shows pedestrians leaving streets ordered to be shut down as an alarm trills on. In the second clip, police are seen at a cordoned section in downtown New Haven.

Residents were instructed to avoid the area until further notice as local authorities and specialized hazardous device teams worked to investigate and inspect all buildings, New Haven Mayor Justin Elicker said. Credit: Gabriela Rassi, Bartholomewtown Podcast via Storyful
