State law enforcement officials have issued the “all clear” after a pair of bomb threats near the Georgia Capitol resulted in the evacuations of several state office buildings.

State employees in the Judicial Building, home to the attorney general and state Supreme Court, as well as the Health building were evacuated shortly after 9 a.m. Tuesday. Authorities urged those in the area not to use radios or cell phones to communicate while police with bomb dogs searched the building.

The evacuations lasted about two hours.

Scott Young, a facilities manager for the Georgia Technology Authority, was one of the designated fire marshals for his office. He said his office reacted pretty calmly to the strobe lights and announcement of a bomb threat.
