VIDEO: Explosion Near KIII Studio Rocks Morning Newscast

By Merrill Knox Comment

A home located five blocks away from the KIII studio exploded this morning during the Corpus Christi ABC affiliate’s morning newscast, startling anchors Jane Monreal and John Thomas and meteorologist Kristin Diaz.

“The studio had a little bit of a ruckus. We’ll have to see what that’s about. We might be making our own news,” Monreal said immediately afterwards.

At least two people were injured in the explosion, which happened at 5:30 a.m., KIII reports. [h/t Jacob Wycoff]
