Delhi, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Investigators ruled a bomb threat at SUNY Delhi a hoax, school officials reported Tuesday.

Two campus buildings were evacuated after a 911 call stated a bomb had been placed in both Evenden Tower and Sanford Hall.

SUNY Delhi said University Police and Delaware County 911 received the calls at approximately 7:13 a.m.

The caller said bombs that had been placed in the buildings were set to explode at 9:30 a.m. The buildings were evacuated and students, staff and faculty were notified.

Nothing about the buildings was found to be unusual during an investigation.

Classes resumed in both buildings beginning at 12:30 p.m.

Delhi Village Police, Delaware County Sheriff's Office, County Emergency Management Office and New York State Police were on the scene and had the perimeter of the buildings secured. State police canine inspected the buildings.

Authorities told SUNY Delhi they had no reason to believe that there is any danger to other buildings on campus due to the specific details of the threat. All classes in other building at SUNY Delhi were to be held as scheduled.
