A wave of bomb threats across the country occurred Wednesday morning, mainly state capitols. The FBI said it was aware and are investigating.

One of the threats came to the South Dakota Capitol, according to ABC News.

Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Kentucky, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi and Montana were other states that ordered evacuations of legislative buildings on Wednesday morning.

“The FBI is aware of the numerous hoax incidents wherein a bomb threat at a state Capitol is made. The FBI takes hoax threats very seriously because it puts innocent people at risk. While we have no information to indicate a specific and credible threat, we will continue to work with our local, state, and federal law enforcement partners to gather, share, and act upon threat information as it comes to our attention. We urge the public to remain vigilant, and report any and all suspicious activity and/or individuals to law enforcement immediately.” ~ Federal Bureau of Investigations - United States.

While the threats did not name specific capitols, the messages were clear: "We have explosives well hidden in your capitol and they will go off in a few hours."

This is an ongoing investigation.
