    LOS ANGELES, CA (CBS) -- Passengers flying through the nation's third busiest airport are packing concerns today after another small bomb went off there Monday night; the second explosion at the Los Angeles International Airport in just two days. No one was hurt, and detectives are still investigating who set them off.

    For two straight days, bombs made of dry ice have blown up inside the Los Angeles International Airport. California native Anna Hogan spent much of the day waiting to board her 18-hour flight to Tel Aviv. She says, "Life has risks, I'm not going to let it stop my life, cut back my freedoms. But I will use proper judgment and be security conscious."

    The most recent explosion happened Monday night inside the airport's international terminal. No one was hurt and flight schedules weren't affected, but a bomb squad was called in after the dry ice was found in an area only accessible to airport workers.

    Detectives say they also found two other similar devices here at the airport on Monday, but those bombs never went off.

    Sunday night marked the first scare for passengers and airport workers, when the first dry ice bomb exploded inside an employee bathroom at a nearby terminal.

    Flights were delayed and security check points were shutdown for more than an hour.

    Feliciano Jiron and his family weren't sure if they'd be able to catch their flight back home to New Mexico. He says, "It's a bit interesting that something like that can happen even with all the security and all the efforts that people are putting forward."

    Investigators are now reviewing surveillance video and are expected to spend the next several days questioning airport employees. The explosions are not believed to be linked to terrorism.

    No arrests have been made in connection with either explosion.
