An Explosive Day

Austin Police rush to the scene of yet another explosion on Tuesday, after two earlier incidents the same day.

One day, three new scares in Texas. Police have confirmed two explosives found on Tuesday were the work of the Austin serial bomber. A third event was unrelated. But Tuesday’s events, plus the four earlier explosions that killed two people have added even more layers of tension to a city filled with anxiety. Police have been following up on hundreds of tips and leads, and they want the public to keep up the vigilance. Authorities said this week they believe the bombings are, quote “meant to send a message.” But what that message is, they still don’t know.
