Watsonville Explosion Rips Through Parking Lot

A large explosion ripped through a city of Watsonville parking lot late Monday, demolishing a car owned by a city employee and blowing out the second-floor windows of an adult school on Main Street. Authorities have not determined the cause of the blast.

Deputy Police Chief Manny Solano said the car, a Chrysler 500 sedan, was unoccupied and parked next to Watsonville-Aptos Adult School on the 200 block of Main Street when it exploded. The force of the blast rocked the nearby police station and sent students in the school scurrying for cover.
