both caused chaos and lockdowns at a fedex facility. our coverage begins with with reporter tom abraham. >> reporter: central texas is on high alert. yet another neighborhood was rocked by a new explosion. >> this incident is not related to any of the other incidents in austin. this was an old military type ordinance that initiated in this person's hand and did cause injury. >> reporter: this one, supposedly not connected. an incendiary device, nonetheless. the explosion happening hours after a morning blast at a fedex center near san antonio. that explosive package was shipped from the austin fedex facility, now swarmed with police as hundreds of police ana federal agents are racing against the clock. finally, what could be a break through in the investigation. fedex says they have turned over another package and turned it over authorities.
>> it will tell you about the expertise. it may give you a greater likelihood of tracking down the materials he used. >> reporter: police say the new packages show he's growing more sophisticated. >> people are scared. you would be too. you know, random packages showing up, explosives going off, people dying for no reason. >> reporter: despite the federal presence with fbi and atf working multiple scenes here in austin, the investigation is still under the lead of the austin police department. reporting from austin, texas. >> we appreciate it, tom and the fbi, the atf are all joining the local police authorities. >> joining us now by phone, abc contributor, former fbi counterterrorism official, steve gomez is with us. steve, with this latest incident determined not to be related to the others, where do you see the
investigation at this point? doesn't sound like they have that many leads? >> caller: it doesn't sound like they have leads, but they have six devices, five of them have exploded and one had not exploded and they were able to do a measure on that device where they can do examination of that device, along with the five. so now they have the ability to look at the signature of the bomb maker. that is going to be very helpful for investigators. that's going to tell them about the ignition system and the detinator, various other parts of those devices and that will help them with sending out leads, doing interviews, trying to figure out where all those materials were purchased. that will help with the public tips as well. >> late last night, the attorney general saying they're close to getting a suspect in custody. that may have been speculative on his part. but, that said, with six devices they are closes to finding that person.
>> caller: yes, i believe so. with each device, there are more circumstances that they can look at, not only with the device, but where it was planted. we've got various places this suspect went to three homes. he planted the bomb right on their porch and you have the trip wire situation and two devices sent to fedex. so, those are going to be very helpful for the investigation. >> and i imagine the fact that one of these was not detonated is also, probably, a big help. the other thing that stuck out was the fact that the package came from austin, went to san antonio, destined back to austin. what do you make of all these clues? >> we already started to believe because of the scrutiny law enforcement was bringing down on to austin, the bomber was probably going to change up his method of delivery. he chose to go to the fedex
locations and to send out the packages out of austin, into another area. that's probably consistent with his sophistication. he realizes that they are going to start trying to close in on him. so he's going to move to a different jurisdiction. it's very important for the public to understand because we may not be looking at just austin, maybe other parts of texas. who knows, we may go to another state near texas. >> frightening concept in and of itself. it does appear to be a very brazen bomber on the loose deep in the heart of texas this morning. thanks to steve gomez there. >> steve, thank you. we're going to move on. breaking overnight, the northeast is getting ready for its fourth major storm in three weeks. >> 15 states are bracing for heavy, wet snow, sleet and strong winds. thousands of flights in and out of the northeast have been canceled. new jersey's governor has declared a state of emergency. >> schools are closed in new york, philadelphia and

that might be coming up beyond this? >> the problem is, every one of these storms have had the same general path walking along the east coast. as we look at the latest models we're going to start at 6:00 in the morning. we're looking at the green, that's the rain. the blue is indicating snow. by 6:00 we're looking at it walking its way through philadelphia, new york and boston by 4:00. widespread snow. this is where the heavy impact. it basically goes pow. then, we're looking for more additional snow showers wednesday night into the 11:00 hour. not until thursday are we out of philadelphia, but hovering by thursday morning and impacting the boston area. >> we know it's bad when you say pow, describing the weather. paul, i would love to say it's great to talk to you, but it's not always in this case. paul williams with us in accuweather. thank you, paul. >> we learned that in meteorologist school, pow. moving on an armed school

"the washington post" says his national security advisers told him not to congratulate the russian leader. senator john mccain blaised trump for doing so. the president did not discuss russia's alleged interference in the 2016 u.s. election or the poisoning of a former russian spy in britain.
