AUSTIN, Texas -- Police have reopened some streets after putting an Austin neighborhood where the latest explosion occurred on total lockdown overnight Sunday into Monday.
But much of the area known as Travis Country remains closed to all but some residents, and the vicinity around the blast remained cordoned off.
By late Monday afternoon, even one resident who said that he could practically see his house from behind the police tape was denied entry. Four blasts have hit the city in less than three weeks, killing two people and wounding four others.
