NORWALK (CNS) - A bomb threat at Cerritos College today prompted some evacuations, a bomb squad response and cancellation of classes.

The threat was received early Tuesday afternoon and involved the "drop-off area near the Administrative Building" at the campus in the 11000 block of Alondra Boulevard, according to the college.

A Los Angeles County sheriff's bomb squad was sent to the scene, and people were advised to avoid the building, which is on Alondra Boulevard between parking lots 3 and 4, according to the sheriff's department.
