Toronto Police say they have received reports of bomb threats, one of several police forces across the continent to have reported so on Dec. 13, 2018. Photo from Getty Images.

North American police forces are dealing with multiple bomb threats that have so far been proven to be unfounded.

Canadian police forces in Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary and other major cities say they have responded to the threats, but no devices have been found. One of the threats forced Toronto Police to evacuate a downtown subway station. However, Calgary Police saythey don’t believe the threats are credible.

“We are currently responding to multiple bomb threats across #YYC. At this time we don’t have any reason to believe they are credible. However, out of an abundance of caution we are treating each as if it is real. We are also aware of similar events occurring across the continent,” Calgary Police wrote Twitter.
