In what appears to be a continuation of the bombings ongoing throughout Austin, Texas a package within the mailing center inside a FedEx building has exploded injuring one.
Luckily, out of the seventy-five employees at the facility only one was injured, and the one that was injured walked away with a minor headache from the blast.
The FBI later said that it is likely that the explosion is connected to the recent bombings. In addition, according to officials on scene the medium-sized package contained metal shrapnel and nails and was headed to Austin when it exploded on a conveyor track.
