Southwestern Illinois College in Belleville posted a notice on its Facebook page within the last hour ordering everyone off the campus. The full posting reads:
"An emergency has occurred at the Belleville Campus. Please evacuate and stay off the campus until further notice."

Below the post, several students are claiming it's another bomb threat, but that's unconfirmed. All classes have been canceled for the day.
