FBI continues search for Laredo building blast clues
By KELLEY SHANNON
Associated Press Writer
LAREDO, Texas (AP) — FBI explosives experts examining remnants of a bomb that exploded at the agency*! office building have determined file device was not the work of a professional, authorities say.
“It appears that die explosion... was caused by a small improvised or unsophisticated explosive device,” FBI spokesman Michael Appleby said Tuesday after an initial assessment by bomb team from Washington.
Appleby would not provide any details about the bomb.
It shattered windows on three floors of die five-story Walker Plaza building
about 6:50 a.m. Monday. No one was injured. Only two people are believed to have been in the building at the time.
The target of the blast still is unknown, said Appleby, adding that that slows down the investigation somewhat.
“It could have been anybody housed in the building," he said. “It’s tough to find a motive or a suspect involved if you don’t know who the intended target was.”
The FBI’s Laredo office with its 12 agents is housed on the second floor of Walker Plaza on the opposite side of the building from the bomb blast. The FBI is the only federal agency in Walker Plaza.

lf Winds Seam Hlghar than Usual In Tax##, If# Bacauaa Thay Aral
DALLAS (AP) — Rags are flapping, skirts blowing and trees bending more than usual this spring in Texas because of what the National Weather Service calls unusually strong winds.
Many days this year have seen steady winds of 20 to 30 mph, with
Coff&i/SwBBtg/Antlque* 6a.m.-10p.m. Dally
gusts over 40 mph.
It’s part of a months-long weather pattern that has kept the wind howling through the normally calmer nights » and mornings and kept the seasonal rain farther to the north, the weather service says.
The normal average wind speed for January through April is about 12 mph. This year, it has been almost 2 mph faster, according to statistics provided by the weather service.
Skip Ely, forecaster in charge of the weather service in Fort Worth, said Texas’ dry winds balance the Midwest’s flooding rains.
