Numerous news agencies are now reporting that a bomb—or possibly several bombs—exploded near the finish line of this afternoon’s Boston Marathon at the Fairmount Copley Plaza Hotel. Boston.com reports that “multiple” people have been injured while The Boston Globe has the figure as “at least a dozen.” The damaged area, according to photos uploaded by onlookers and journalists to Twitter, appears chaotic, smokey, and partially evacuated. Horrifyingly, eyewitnesses have reported “blood everywhere.”

I was reading where one woman said she saw where people were missing limbs.

And they've set up a morgue, apparently.

Shouldn't that place have been swept and guarded days before the race? It's a perfect target.

Watched some of the live feeds from ABC News, Fox News, and CNN, just to get an idea of what the heck is going on.

One of the anchors said the bombings might have something to do with the fact that the Boston Marathon was in memory of the Sandy Hook Victims.... :no:

Sounds like they were going after a Starbucks and the marathon got in the way.

All kidding aside looked like 2 IED type explosions. Allegedly theres a third in a hotel somewhere. Noones taken credit for it.

Terrible!

There should be lots of photos and video (public, news, city) of the area prior to the blasts. Hopefully this will have caught someone, if no one takes responsibility.

Rumor. There turning off cel;l phones communications in Boston area. Apparently to prevent a remote detonation ? Or is the cell system overwhelmed with calls ? Just a reminder in a SHTF scenario your cell phone will not be reliable. Have a back up plan to get ahold of loved ones in these changing times.

Thats actually a really smart idea. It could be that the system is overwhelmed with calls... but it would also make sense if they shut off the system for the time being.

I hear FEMA was conducting a bombing exercise a few blocks away.

(I know... I shouldn't start rumors... but I couldn't resist)

I suspect the cell system here is overwhelmed. My friend's son just now was able to call her to say he's ok (he was a runner). Local news has little details on what exactly went down I'm located south of Boston and my cell works...but another friend of mine can't call through to her husband that works at Mass General Hospital. The general mood here is fearful.

As soon as I my friend can talk to her hubby at Mass General I'll probably know a lot more.

Two dead, at least 20+ injured. Nothing on exactly what type of bomb this was, only that there were 2 explosions.

I wonder why in the world would someone want to do this to so many innocent people. Bet its some brainwashed individual.

Horrible. These were just people having a good time, how could this be a target at all? Hopefully those who were hurt will recover and they'll be able to quickly get to the bottom of this.
