For the second time in two months, the MGM Tower in Century City has been evacuated after a bomb threat. "Please be advised that MGM Tower has received a bomb threat. Building Management and the Los Angeles Police Department have been notified," an 11:35 a.m. MGM e-mail obtained by Defamer said. "As a precaution, we have decided to evacuate the building effective immediately until approximately 2:00 pm. You will be evacuated by your Floor Wardens." UPDATE: According to LAPD Media Relations, who says they are notified of all bomb threats, the only threat today came from Northeast Division. One also occurred last night in Harbor. During August's bomb threat, LAPD could not confirm that one was happening either.
