The Secret Service on Wednesday said it intercepted two explosive devices addressed to the residences of Clinton and Obama. The situation escalated further when CNN evacuated its New York bureau when another explosive was found in their building’s mail room.

Several more incidents followed around the US, including at the offices of Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former chair of the Democratic National Committee; California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters; California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris; and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Early reports indicating a similar package was sent to the White House were later refuted by the Secret Service.
