The explosions injured several people but none of their injuries were life threatening.
Investigators say the pipe bombs were not sent by mail, but were placed inside the mailboxes and set to go off when opened.
Authorities are calling this an act of domestic terrorism because the bombs were sent with anti-governement propaganda.

Using these new low-flow, high pressure toilets is one way local residents can help conserve water.
These toilets use a gallon and a half of water for the flush.... the old ones use up to six.
The choice of one plumber's trade magazine is a "Toto Toilet".
Even though there's little water in the toilet, it's strong enough to flush a dozen golf balls at once.

Once wildlife officials tranquilized the bear, it fell down into lower branches and then needed a push to get the rest of the way down.
