TEXAS HAS been hit by its fifth explosion this month as police hunt a suspected serial bomber, Sky News reports.

A FedEx worker was injured after a package containing nails and shrapnel blew up at a distribution centre in Schertz, San Antonio Fire Department said.

The FedEx employee is believed to have suffered non-life threatening injuries in the latest incident, which happened at about midnight local time.

The series of blasts which have targeted the US state in March has so far killed two people.

On Sunday, two cyclists in Austin were injured in an explosion involving a tripwire device.

The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are investigating.

A series of bombings across Austin have taken place over the past two weeks, killing African-American men Anthony Stephan House, 39, and Draylen Mason, 17, and injured four others.
