The North Wind: Northern Michigan University closed because of security threat

MARQUETTE -- According to The North Wind (Northern Michigan University's campus news source) NMU in Marquette has closed down today after authorities were alerted of a blog that allegedly mentioned shooting students on campus and having the results be worse than the Virginia Tech shootings.

The latest update, at 11:45 a.m., reports that "Public Safety has the situation under control on campus, but that 'as a precaution, ask that people do not come to campus and that students remain in their residence halls.'"

The North Wind Web site adds that five entrances to Marquette General Hospital will remain open, but will be closely monitored. Schools near the NMU campus, including Marquette Senior High and Father Marquette, have been closed for the day.
