Eric Moulton, Ellen Brotherson and 80 other students studying at BYU's Jerusalem Center hurried to bomb shelters Friday evening after Hamas fired a missile in the direction of Jerusalem for the first time.

Students at the Center spent 15 minutes in a shelter there, while those who were in West Jerusalem at the time had to go to shelters in the city. Other students in another part of the city went to the U.S. Consulate's shelter.

All students, faculty and staff at the Center are safe after the missile strike occurred at around 5 p.m. Jerusalem time, according to security updates on the Center's website.
