Emergency notification service mail (and phone calls) received at 2:05 PM today:

This is a message from the [our city] Police Department. Police are investigating a suspicious package located in the [adjacent] block of [very nearby street] . Officers have contacted businesses and residents in the immediate area. A police perimeter has been established restricting access to several blocks on [very nearby street] while the bomb squad investigates. Please avoid the area until the police action is completed . This concludes the message from the [our city] Police Department.
