INSTAGRAM VIDEO SHOWS WHAT HAPPENED WHEN AN EXPLOSION TURNED A FLORIDA PANHANDLE JAIL'S PROTECTIVE WALLS. INTO SOMETHING DEADLY.

THERE WERE ABOUT 600 INMATES IN THE MEDIUM-SECURITY FACILITY WHEN THE EXPLOSION HAPPENED WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

It's pretty much complete destruction inside this facility; it was a huge explosion.

I can't sleep knowing if my child is ok, I have other family members here, don't know if they're ok, either.

THE DAMAGE FROM WHAT'S SUSPECTED TO BE A NATURAL GAS EXPLOSION IS SO BAD THAT DEPUTIES HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO GET FAR INTO THE BUILDING.

ANOTHER INMATE'S MOTHER IS ANGRY ABOUT THE WAIT FOR ANSWERS ABOUT THE INMATES' CONDITIONS.

My son has not been accounted for. How do you think family members are feeling that their family members haven't been accounted for?

THE EXPLOSION FOLLOWS TWO DAYS OF TORRENTIAL RAIN IN PENSACOLA.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAYS THE 15-POINT-55 INCHES OF RAIN THAT FELL TUESDAY WAS THE LARGEST ON RECORD.

PARTS OF THE JAIL HAD BEEN FLOODED, BUT OFFICIALS DON'T KNOW IF THE DAMAGE CONTRIBUTED TO THE EXPLOSION.

1:21 there was no way I could afford the out of state tuition it was something like 14000 per semester. 1:27

FLORIDA STATE SENATORS ARE TALKING ABOUT CHANGING THAT.

A BILL ON THE SENATE FLOOR WOULD GIVE UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS WHO GRADUATE FROM A FLORIDA HIGH SCHOOL AND HAVE LIVED IN FLORIDA AT LEAST THREE YEARS IN STATE TUITION.

Nestor Prime, Immokalee HS Grad

0:55 it would allow me to go back to school and pay the same tuition that a lot of classmates I graduated with are currently paying. 1:03

IMMIGRATION EXPERTS SAY CHEAPER TUITION MEANS MORE IMMIGRANTS CAN GET DEGREES AND CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIETY.

Laura Cuellar, Immigration Services Center

DOWNTOWN PERRY, OKLAHOMA IS PROBABLY THE LAST PLACE YOU WILL FIND SYMPATHY FOR CONVICTED MURDERER CLAYTON LOCKETT.

LOCKETT WAS STRAPPED TO A GURNEY LIKE THIS ONE TUESDAY NIGHT, SET TO DIE BY LETHAL INJECTION.BUT THE INJECTION FAILED AND LOCKETT WRITHED IN PAIN FOR MORE THAN HALF HOUR BEFORE DYING OF AN APPARENT HEART ATTACK.

IT FIT THE DEFINITION OF CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT.

BUT LOCALS WHO REMEMBER WHAT LOCKETT DID TO STEPHANIE NEIMAN 15 YEARS AGO, SAY IT WAS THE CLOSEST HER FAMILY WOULD EVER GET TO JUSTICE.

"Stephanie was beat up, she was shot, she was thrown in a grave when she was still alive.His little 30 minutes of lying there in anguish, if he was even feeling any anguish for 30 minutes does not compare at all to anything Stephanie went through or her family."

ACROSS THE STREET AT A HAIR SALON, THE FEELINGS ARE THE SAME.

"Who cares if he feels pain. You know honestly, he's getting away a lot easier than how his victim did, how Stephanie did."

TIAJUANA HAMMOCK HAS BEEN A GOOD FRIEND OF THE NEIMAN FAMILY FOR YEARS, WATCHING THEIR WORLD TURN UPSIDE DOWN.

FROM THE POPULAR AMC SERIES THE WALKING DEAD --

TO ZOMBIE CON IN DOWNTOWN FORT MYERS.

ZOMBIES ARE A CULTURAL PHENOMENA.

THEY'RE ALSO THE INSPIRATION BEHIND AN AMENDMENT TO CHANGE A PROPOSED FLORIDA GUN LAW'S TITLE.

IT WOULD CALL THE LAW "AN ACT RELATING TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALPSE."

THE LAW WOULD ALLOW FLORIDIANS TO CARRY GUNS WITH THEM WHEN DISASTER STRIKES. AND EVACUATIONS HAPPEN.

BUT THE LOCAL SENATOR BEHIND THE ZOMBIE NAME SAYS THE LAW GOES TOO FAR.

DEMOCRATIC SENATOR DWIGHT BULLARD. REPRESENTING PARTS OF HENDRY AND COLLIER COUNTIES. SAYS GUN OWNERS ARE ALREADY ALLOWED TO TRANSPORT GUNS DURING EVACUATIONS.

HE SAYS THE PROPOSED LAW WOULD ONLY BE NEEDED DURING A ZOMBIE INVASION.

INSIDE FOWLER FIREARMS -- WHICH SELLS ZOMBIE AMMO AND TARGETS --

SOME GUN OWNERS SUPPORT THE BILL -- JUST NOT THE PROPOSED TONGUE IN CHEEK TITLE.
