Previous Coverage:

Multiple news agencies are reporting that another bomb threat has been called into the Regina Catholic Education Center this afternoon, leading to the building being evacuated.

KCRG reports that there is some indication that the bomb threat maker could be the same man that made the threat about a month ago, causing classes to be canceled.

According to the Press-Citizen, despite the repeat nature of the call, the police are taking it seriously:

Iowa City Police Sgt. Denise Brotherton said the caller contacted the school around 12:15 p.m. today and indicated he wanted money and that the school had "20 minutes to evacuate." Brotherton said he made more than one call and indicated that there was a bomb at the school.

"Even though nothing happened last time, there's no guarantees," Brotherton said. "Authorities are responding to the threat in the same manner as they did the last time ... Everybody that was notified last time was notified this time."

School officials say they will inform parents if classes are canceled due to the threat.
