PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - Police say at least four schools were evacuated in New Hampshire after receiving threats.

Police say Portsmouth High School, Fuller Elementary School in Keene, Berlin Middle School in Berlin, and Amherst Street Elementary School in Nashua received threats Monday.

The Portsmouth, Keene and Berlin schools reported getting bomb threats. The Nashua school said it received a threat saying there were explosives in the building. WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1TS8O3C) that building was evacuated while police investigated. It was later deemed safe.

Police in Portsmouth said there’s a strong likelihood the threat is non-credible, but scanned the building after evacuating students. No threat was found. No threat was found at the Keene school, as well. The Berlin school also was evacuated and being checked.
