I just read bomb threat at NYC Grand Central Station. Praying this is a twitter hoax or just a threat.

I sure hope the bomb threat in Grand Central Station turns out to be a hoax

Not much information. The @NewYorkScanner was first to report the alleged threat.
Another unofficial NYC Twitter account reports more details.
Manhattan: Grand Central Terminal U/D #4, 5 & 6 lines are suspended in both directions due to the Bomb threat. NYPD o/s investigating. NY02

And BET is also tweeting:
BREAKING: NYC Grand Central Terminal NYPD reporting a male is saying Bomb will go off in 13 minutes Bomb Squad requested Area evacuated.

We’ll update as news develops.
I think it's been over 13 minutes since that guy said the bomb would go off, so does this mean Grand Central is safe?

No "all clear" statement by NYPD just yet regarding the Grand Central bomb threat.

NYPD is reporting a caller said a bomb would go off at Grand Central in "20 minutes" about 40 min ago. Evacuations/searches underway.
