"I want to assure all Texans, and especially those in Austin, that local, state and federal law enforcement officials are working diligently to find those responsible for these heinous crimes", he said.

The latest explosions happened during the South by Southwest music, film and technology festival, which brings about 400,000 visitors to Austin each year.

"We will not tolerate this in Austin", Manley told reporters, hours after Monday's explosion. He later said if this happens, stand as clear as possible until police arrive.

That woman's injuries were not life-threatening, he said. Anthony Stephan House died after the explosion on his front porch around 6:55 a.m. March 2, on the 1100 block of Haverford Drive, which is about 12 miles away from Oldfort Hill Drive neighborhood. Police have not yet released the victims's names.

The police chief refused to provide many details about how the explosives were packaged, citing the ongoing investigation. The woman who was injured was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

McManus said the community shouldn't be anxious by the explosions but rather "cautious" due to Austin being just 80 miles north of San Antonio.

The twin bombings followed an initial blast on March 2, when a 39-year-old man was killed - also after opening a parcel bomb. He said neither the Postal Service nor private carriers such as UPS or FedEx have any record of delivering the package to the home where Monday's explosion occurred.

Festival organizers did not immediately say whether they would be taking extra precautions, but the police chief urged attendees to "be aware of what's going on".

In the Monday blast, the package was spotted in front of the house in the morning.

Authorities in Austin, Tex., say the three package bomb explosions that killed two people and injured two others within the last two weeks are related and could be hate crimes. The two homes that received the packages belonged to African-Americans, the police said.

Bomb-sniffing dogs were reportedly at the scene of the explosion Monday morning and investigating nearby houses.

He says there's now no other evidence indicating a hate crime beyond the victims' race.

Just a week ago, a similar incident occurred in North Austin, killing one man. Manley said she was in critical but stable condition.

During a press conference this afternoon, Police Chief Brian Manley confirmed that APD believes the incidents are related and is asking residents to be hypervigilant of unexpected and/or unmarked packages. The package, which was not delivered by any mail services, reportedly exploded in the kitchen.

After talking with Manley, McManus said the FBI, ATF and Austin PD believe all the explosions are connected with each other but do not know why they are being sent to the homes.
