And now to the southwest, where explosions rocked two churches. The places of worship targeted during Sunday service us. The blasts, just 30 minutes apart in the same city. Kayna Whitworth has the details. Reporter: Tonight, the FBI investigating two terrifying explosions at churches in new Mexico. It sounded like something had fallen off and shattered the glass in the back. Reporter: 8:00 A.M., an explosion in a mailbox outside Calvary Baptist church, parishioners left with their ears ringing. 30 minutes later at 8:30 A.M. Just as worshipers were receiving communion, another explosion. Shattering the glass front doors at holy cross church in las Cruces. That bomb exploding in a trash can near the entrance. Police arrived, escorting everyone out. I didn't even see the police walk up to the altar and then all of a sudden I hear, hey, we need everyone out of the church. And I was like, what happened? What did we miss while we were, mass was happening? Reporter: Instead of Sunday school, she spent her morning making this sign letting everyone know services were cancelled. Nobody was injured but after the deadly attack in South Carolina in June, many here left wondering where they can truly be safe. Kayna Whitworth, ABC news, los Angeles.
