A package reportedly on its way to Austin, where there have been four bombings in less than three weeks exploded inside a Texas FedEx facility early Tuesday morning, per the Washington Post. No one is believed to be injured. Emergency services in Austin are also investigating another suspicious package this morning at a different Texas FedEx facility.

The latest: Local authorities said an earlier Sunday night explosion had “similarities” to the other package bombings that killed two people and injured two others earlier this month. They're now investigating what they consider to be a “serial bomber” situation.
