The city’s emergency responders have been busy this Monday, with at least six suspicious powder incidents at banks across Manhattan.

Reports started around 2:30pm, when the first suspicious powder incident occurred at 180 Madison Avenue:

Each incident seems to have been targeted towards Wells Fargo locations and three locations targeted today remain closed during the investigation.

Here is a partial list of locations reporting suspicious powder incidents so far (via Yeshiva World News):

100 Gold Street (Mayors Office)
2330 Broadway (Wells Fargo Bank)
757 3 Avenue (Wells Fargo Bank)
45 Broadway & Exchange Alley (Wells Fargo Bank)
180 Madison Avenue & 34th Street (Wells Fargo Bank)

One of the suspicious envelopes contained a letter that said “Welcome to May 1st”, which was thought to be a reference to the May 1st demonstrations planned by Occupy Wall Street (NBC 4 New York)
