UPDATE: Jersey Shore beaches reopen following pipe bomb explosion [5:49 p.m.]
Jersey Shore beaches reopened Sunday after a pipe bomb exploded Saturday just before the start of a Marine Corps charity run.
Officials have not said whether the blast was terror-related, but told ABC News that the explosion did not appear to be related to the explosion in Manhattan.
Officials said the New Jersey device contained evidence of some sort of black powder.
Special Agent Michael Whitaker, a spokesman for the FBI, said Sunday state and federal investigators continued canvassing the park where the explosion happened and conducting interviews.
Whitaker added that all travel restrictions have been lifted.
The Associated Press contributed to this update.
An explosive device detonated in a trash can today on a board walk in New Jersey near the course of a Marine Corps charity run, CNN reports. Two more devices were reportedly found and authorities are looking for others. The race had been delayed and there were no injuries according to the FBI. The race is now canceled.
Here's the trash can in question.

Many online were concerned for the safety of the runners.
We are a few blocks north of activity. This remains very active scene. Let's call the police response "impressive."— Kurt Siegelin (@kurtsiegelin) September 17, 2016
Others praised the police response in the matter.
Organizers were quick to send everyone home as more devices were discovered.
