A caller tonight phoned in bomb threats at three north Alabama hospitals, according to The Huntsville Times' news partner WHNT News Channel Channel 19.
According to WHNT, bomb threats were made at Cullman Regional Medical Center as well as Marshall Medical Centers in Guntersville and Boaz. A male caller said that bombs would go off at all three hospitals at the same time, WHNT reports.
The Cullman Times reported that the call was received at about 9 p.m. and that authorities expected to be finished sweeping the Cullman hospital at about 10:30 p.m.
Patients were being evacuated at the Cullman hospital, according to the Cullman Times.
ABC 33/40 reports that Cullman Regional Medical Center was cleared of any threat before 11 p.m. The Cullman hospital, which ordered an evacuation, then began moving patients back inside. There were 55 patients at the time.
The patients had been transferred to Woodland Health Care Center in the meantime.

Dumuth said that evacuation was not recommended based on police directions in both municipalities.Arab police say that a press release regarding the threats should be issued shortly.

This whole country could be easily paralyzed.
Really ... this should learn us that horses and buggies and girls with long dresses and glasses are not enough to keep those young boys in check.
We've lost our agrarian culture, so there are no barns to build ... what's an Amish kid to do these days ?
Let’s take off the gloves.....find this POS and hang him!
“Arab police say that a press release regarding the threats should be issued shortly.”
Arab police .. typo or WTH ?
There are still streets to clean and garbage to pick up.
Arab is a small town in north Alabama near Guntersville.
Gotcha, thanks !
Bama must not be playing.
Arab is a small city in Alabama.....

They need to change their name.
May whomever issued these threats quickly find out that this is a very bad time to be a dumb@$$.
Arab is a town in AL. Pronounced “a-rab”.
Back in my day the worst thing we did will call the local convenience store and ask if they had Prince Albert in a can when we felt like being smart asses.
Oddly enough, that's the way I try to make a point of pronouncing the other a-rab too .. even odder, the b often wants to come out like a g .. maybe I should get that checked .. or not
How con VEEEE nyint !
