A bomb threat prompted the closure of all Los Angeles Unified School District schools today as facilities are now going through the process of being searched by plant and facilities managers.

LAUSD is the second-largest school district in the country, made up of more than 900 schools and nearly 200 charter schools in a 720-square-mile area.

The threat came electronically to one of the school board members and mentioned multiple schools in the district. An early Associated Press report said the note appeared to have originated from outside the country.

The school closures follows the terrorist attack in San Bernardino earlier this month at the Inland Regional Center that left 14 dead and even more wounded from the shooting massacre.
