Jewish facilities around the nation were rocked by yet another wave of bomb threats Monday, forcing evacuations in at least 12 states.

At least a dozen Jewish community centers and day schools in Alabama, North Carolina, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Florida, Maryland, Michigan, Virginia and Delaware received threatening phone calls, The Huffington Post has confirmed. 

This the fifth wave of threats JCCs have received since the start of the new year.

Law enforcement officials were investigating Monday’s threats and as of that morning, all centers were cleared and being reopened after authorities did not find explosive devices. 

There have now been more than 160 bomb threats made to over 60 Jewish community centers since January. The Huffington Post is tracking the threats here

It remains unclear who is making the threats and if it’s one person or a group, but they have rattled communities around the U.S.

The FBI and the Department of Justice told HuffPost previously that they are investigating possible civil rights violations in connection with the threats.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
