A series of bomb threats — none of which appear credible — have targeted “various critical infrastructure and key resource sectors” in the state, according to Vermont State Police.

In a press release Sunday, police said they hadn’t identified any “suspicious items or authentic threats.” 

The threats have come via emails, sent from various accounts ending in “@skiff.com,” with messages such as, “The bombs will blow up in a few hours. Many people will die,” according to the release.  

Noting that hoax campaigns have become commonplace, police are asking residents to report any emails or suspicious activities that could involve possible threats to critical infrastructure.

Police also asked the public to report unattended items such as backpacks and packages, people taking pictures of “infrastructure items, access points or other security related activities,” a car or person parked in a sensitive location and any behavior that seems out-of-place.
