DAVIE, Fla. – The David Posnack Jewish Community Center in Davie has been evacuated following a bomb threat, one of many across the country Monday morning.

Students and staff gathered outside on-campus buildings just after 9:15 a.m.

Teachers were seen guiding young children across the street to nearby locations where parents will be allowed to pick them up.

The numbers of children on campus was almost doubled as students from the Hollywood JCC campus were visiting the Davie location for a performance when the threat was made.

Reports claim up to 10 Jewish Community Centers in the U.S. received threats Monday.

Several JCCs across the country have been threatened over the last few weeks, although none of the threats were deemed credible after investigations.
