Terrorist gunmen storm Crimean college and detonate 'home-made bomb' in cafeteria, killing at least 13 

Terrorist gunmen storm Crimean college and detonate 'home-made bomb' in cafeteria, killing at least 13 A bomb killed at least 13 people and injured at least 50 others at a vocational college in Crimea Wednesday in what Russian officials called a terrorist attack. Gunmen stormed the college in the Crimean peninsula's city of Kerch before setting off the explosive device in the cafeteria, it is understood.  Officials have described it as an act of terrorism carried out using a home-made bomb. The head of the Crimean college said the unknown gunmen had burst into the building, let off explosives, and started shooting anyone they saw. Olga Grebennikova, the college's director, told Crimean media outlets outside the college that someone had blown themselves up inside the college and that the bodies of children were everywhere. Pupils and college staff were among those killed, she said. Witnesses at the scene told local media there were not enough ambulances to take the casualties to hospital, so public buses were utilised as makeshift emergency vehicles.  Law enforcement officers arrive at the scene of the bombing Credit: TASS The National Anti-Terrorism Committee's spokesman Andrei Przhezdomsky said the building is currently being combed for other explosive devices. The Tass news agency reported that most of the victims were students and quoting a National Guard official who said the incident was a terror attack.  The Investigative Committee, which probes major incidents, said in a statement that it had "opened a criminal case into a terrorist attack over the explosion in a college in Kerch".

As Hurricane Florence barreled toward the state on Wednesday, Waddell packed up her family to seek shelter with relatives and said she was ready to leave town for good – just as many businesses and hundreds of residents did after Matthew in 2016.
