Just hours after an earlier deadly blast killed a teen and injured a woman, ABC News reports that a second explosion has rocked Austin, Texas.

According to Austin PD, the reported explosion took place in the 6700 block of Galindo Street.

The authorities added that “the call came in as a nature unknown urgent at 11:50 this morning.”

ABC notes that the first blast, reported about 6:44 a.m., killed a male teenager and injured a woman in her 40s.

It occurred at a single-family house in the northeast section of the city and appears to have been caused by a package that had been placed on the porch of a home rather than delivered by a mail service, police said.

Police believe the explosion happened after residents took the package inside to open it.

The second explosion injured another woman and authorities are evaluating whether a second person was also hurt, according to the Austin Police Department.

Local Fox13 reports that police are responding to another reported explosion in the 6700 block of Galindo Street on Monday.

According to Austin-Travis County EMS, a woman in her 70s has been transported to Dell Seton Medical Center with potentially life threatening injuries.
