MANILA - A suspected bomb threat hit Miriam College in Quezon City, prompting school authorities to suspend classes and office work on Wednesday, October 18. 

In a statement, the Catholic school said it received the bomb threat through a text message on Tuesday, but "found nothing suspicious" in their campus. 

Miriam College said police are set to conduct a more thorough inspection of the school. 

"Members of the community will be duly informed of their schedule of return to work/school," Miriam College said. 

An existing law, Presidential Decree No. 1727 enacted in 1980, penalizes those found guilty of "communicating false information on attempts to damage or destroy any property through explosives."
