PHOTO: Damage to the Escambia County Jail is seen after an explosion in the facility, May 1, 2014, in Pensacola, Fla. Two inmates were killed and more than 100 others were injured in the explosion according to an Escambia County spokeswoman.

At least two people have died with more than 150 others injured after a
gas explosion at a Florida jail, authorities said, tying the blast to
recent flooding in the region.
The explosion happened around 11 p.m. at the Escambia County Central
Booking and Detention Facility in Pensacola, county spokeswoman Kathleen
Dough-Castro said. 
 
There’s no word at this point on whether the victims are inmates or
guards, Pensacola Police Officer Maria Landy told ABC News Radio.

The injured – 155 inmates and guards in total – have been taken to area
hospitals, most of them with minor injuries. About 600 uninjured
prisoners were evacuated by bus and transferred to other detention
facilities in the area, Dough-Castro said. No inmates are known to have
escaped.
Authorities are investigating the cause of the explosion in the western Florida town.
ABC News Radio contributed to this report.
