WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) - A Penn State campus in northeastern Pennsylvania is closed for two days over a bomb threat.

Penn State Wilkes Barre (WILKS’-ba-ree) posted an alert on its website Thursday afternoon, saying the campus is closed Thursday and Friday due to the threat.

The school says a message was found on a bathroom door in the campus Science Center. The note warned a bomb was in the building and it would detonate before noon Friday.

State police are at the school and bomb-sniffing dogs will sweep all campus buildings.

The advisory asks students to avoid campus until further notice.

The school’s website says the campus has about 545 students and 58 faculty members.
