A series of gas explosions ripped through parts of a city in southern Taiwan.
Gas leaks in the city's sewage system caused explosions that killed at least 25 people and injured many more.

How this could happen and who is responsible is being investigated.

The first of two Americans stricken with Ebola landed in Atlanta Saturday.
This marks the first time the deadly virus will be treated in the U.S.

More than 13-hundred people have been infected and 700 killed overseas.
Since Ebola spreads through contact with organs and bodily fluid, there is little risk to Americans.
