Additionally “bomb threats were made against more than two dozen schools in New Jersey on Tuesday, and also against schools in Massachusetts, Delaware and Iowa, forcing evacuations and lockdowns that affected thousands of students,” Reuters reported.

All of the threats were reportedly delivered with a robotic voice and were traced back to Bakersfield, California.
