Georgia (Aug 30, 2010) — As a precautionary measure, a single building on the campus of Kennesaw State University was evacuated at approximately 11:30 a.m. today, Monday, August 30, 2010. This evacuation involves a single building, the Social Sciences Building, and its surrounding perimeter of 100 feet.
Some civil war relics stored on the third floor were noticed as being a potential
hazard, and as a precautionary measure, a building evacuation was ordered by the
KSU Police, who in turn notified the Cobb County Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD)
unit and the Army EOD. They are now on scene, and the campus will be notified once
the all-clear is issued.
