NYE COUNTY (KTNV) — The Nye County Sheriffs Office says it received a report of a bomb threat against schools in Tonopah Wednesday morning.
Authorities say the threat didn't list a specific school while they received the message via email and it wasn't initially deemed valid but all Tonopah-area schools would be virtual for the day, including staff, as a precaution.
