NBC said that the delay between explosions...if done on purpose, is usually typical of trying to hurt the first responders in an attempt to hurt more people.

We heard the explosions and saw the smoke. The property management came on the intercom and told us that police had asked that we stay in the building until further notice.

It definitely looks like a bomb (actually at least two) and our building management called it "criminal activity."

I am on the 23rd floor above and back away from the explosion site. From what we have been told, our street is shut down and they are not allowing people to exit onto Boylston Street.

Scary stuff.

I'm still trying to reach my sister, she was just a spectator, not a runner. I, of course, am in the PAC NW as my husband is active duty Army but when I lived in Boston or when I visit (it's my hometown) Patriots Day was one of the best days of the year. Truly a festive day with the Red Sox playing & then the marathon. I have so many fond memories....

My entire family is trying to get in touch w/ my sister but know it's difficult as the phone lines are insane right now.

(((HUGS))) to you, Cat!

Perhaps I understood the terrorists' motives of 9/11 if they were targeting our government, financial district, etc., but people just trying to enjoy life and do something healthy?? WTF????

Major hugs and prayers to you Cat! Please be safe!!

ETA: I don't presume to know who did this or why. To me, one bomb could be faulty wiring, etc. Two+ bombs equals terrorism. All forms of injustice to innocent people confuse me and make me angry and sad. Sorry if I offended anyone..

NBC live says that there was a third controlled explosion from the bomb squad disarming one, and that the Boston PD found two more bombs. Apparently it's still not safe.

Okay, they just said it again and that they have teams disarming the devices.

Just got a reply text from my sister, she is safe but understandably shaken. She was down the road a bit from where the explosions went off but said they were VERY loud and immediate chaos ensued. She's currently at a safe location, working with law enforcement, etc on getting home as she took the T in and it's currently closed.

Thank you for the prayers!

I appreciate the news coverage I've seen so far inserting repeated reminders that so much of the initial information we have and/or will hear ends up being inaccurate.

Hope people are able to keep their wits about them and give officials time to do their jobs without making them more difficult.

They'll get more info from a live perpetrator.

I had two friends running, both had crossed the finish line before this happened and have reported in safe.

I was just looking through the pics and they showed a little boy in a wheelchair with an injured leg.

Why do people do crap like this? I just can''t understand.

Be vigilant, in your own cities, be vigilant.

It was something we learned in Britain during the years of IRA bombings.

That was exactly what I was thinking about earlier, neh. That we are now like London (England) having bombings anywhere anytime.
They'll get more info from a live perpetrator.
Thats true TR, but I was thinking more along the lines that since 2 are dead (so far) I would trade a dead bomber to have one of the innocent victims alive, kwim?

My daughter and her H live in that area. I heard from her and she is okay.

But she was in Virginia Tech, in the next building down during that massacre on April 16th, 2007. It just makes me sick with worry.

It's awful. My sister in law was running today, and I thought my brother might be at the finish line waiting for her, along with her family. I called his cel and it went right to vm so I freaked. Thankfully he was at home, and my SIL was 2.5 miles from the finish line.

I wonder if there is still a threat or if they are just being cautious. I heard on the world news that people are being told to stay away from large groups in Boston.

Glad everyone who had people in the area have learned they're okay. Cat, hope you will make it home all right.

I was another one who thought of 9/11. Hopefully once things settle down, no one gets a hair up their ass and starts blaming the organizers for what happened - like they blamed the builders of the towers when they collapsed.

As far as casualties, I've heard two dead, over 100 injured. I also saw the little biy in the wheelchair. He looked to be about my GSs age. I was thinking "My God, he can't be more than 7 years old!"

Prayers going out to all of Boston.

So glad you're home safe Cat! Thanks for posting.

I wonder if there is still a threat or if they are just being cautious. I heard on the world news that people are being told to stay away from large groups in Boston.

They have no way of knowing if there is still a threat because they don't know the details of the attacks. Maybe we have gotten a little too complacent? After 911 we would have been on high alert for this, and actually, I believe we were. The Boston Marathon is always held on "Patriots Day" which is a state holiday, huge crowd and long standing reputation of being "the" marathon to run. Unlike the others, you need to qualify with a prior marathon under a certain time. Therefore it is competitive and just the fact that you "qualified" for Boston is a notch in your belt. You would find the highest concentration of people at the start and finish of the marathon. It was after the elite runners finish, so this was when the masses were finishing and their friends/family waiting for them. I find it horrifically ironic that most of the injuries were lower limbs, feet, ankles and legs blown off. To me, that tells me the device was on the ground, whether in a backpack or garbarge can. There was also one at the JFK Library, which again sounds like a political motive.

At this point, they can't rule anything out so they need to stop the movement of people in and out of the area. They will need to clear them all. A reporter said if he wanted to leave his hotel to report on the street, they won't let you back in the hotel. Everyone's in lockdown until they can get a better handle on things.

My ExH has volunteered at the finish line for many, many years. Luckily, he gave that up a few years back. He is, afterall, the father of my child. I can't tell you how many times we went down there together to watch the marathon. Just a wonderful day in Boston, typicaly nice weather after a long, hard New England winter.

They will find these bastards. And the Boston Marathon will continue.

Now the main topic really is prayers.

Anyone else having 9/11 and Oklahoma flashbacks?

I want to thank all of you for sending out your prayers for all Bostonians. We need them. I'm in shock still. Numb disbelief. I've lived on the marathon route. I've worked on it. I've enjoyed wonderful times in the area that was bombed. From schooling to work to play.

Boston is one great city! It's people are smart, strong and loving. It's made up of all these little towns that unite it into one city and damn proud of it too.

If you watch the news footage and see the police and officials from the race RUN into the bomb areas to help, that is what Boston's finest are. True Patriots on our Patriots Day.


God bless us, everyone.

cryingdaily, have you heard from Xena yet?

So many very sad stories coming out of Boston. Two brothers watching the marathon, each have lost a leg.

So many heroes. I saw so many run away when the bombs went off, but I also saw so many run towards the blast to go help, and not just police officers. Not to slight the officers because they are the bravest and finest, for sure.

curiouswiz, my heart goes out to you and everyone in your fine city. Just like NYC, this will just make you stronger and prouder. The evil doers won't win!

Xena got home at 6 this morning.

She called me on her way home. She was posted on the route about a mile away when it happened. She ran the mile with others in her unit to the location of the blast.

She's on standby to be called back but I don't think she'll hear the phone.

She had been up for 30 hours. When I left for work at 8:15, I stopped at her apartment. She was still in her uniform with her glasses on.....out cold on the couch. Didn't move a muscle when I took her glasses off her.

^^^ I second this....

A few days after this, and I am still so shocked.

I have seen things written like "this happens all the time in the middle east, why is this time so much more tragic, and why does it get so much more news"...with a related story attached to it that 31 people were killed and hundreds more injured.

I dont think it was any worse or better, but the fact is that there is a seperation between here and there - and there is a buffer that americans can just turn off CNN when news like this breaks in another country, now, its here too.

The thing i love about this country though is that we do not live in fear, and the quote is right "When you spot violence, look it in the eye and think, 'The good outnumber you, and we always will."

I am running the Dirty Girl Mud Run on May 18th....I will be putting the names of the victims on my shirt to honor them in my run. I am not sure of what else that I can do being so far away from Boston, they need to be remembered, and so I am just trying to do my part.

Photo's of the bomber have turned up on department store surveillance cameras located near the blast.


Your mileage may vary... in accordance with the prophecy.

Do not back up. Severe tire damage.

It doesn't sound like anything has really been confirmed. The news reporters seem to be being very cautious, as they should be.

CNN reports as of 1:46 PM today that an ARREST has been made.

CNN's report remains unconfirmed. The FBI's national press office says "we have not officially named anyone and we don't know where they're getting that information." Boston Police also declined to comment to HuffPost Crime, saying they don't know about the possible suspect.

There is media disagreement on an arrest:

I'm hoping the disagreement is only a matter of specifics - as in, they took a suspect in for questioning versus officially arresting them yet.

Listening to CBS radio.

They're saying a Person of Interest has been identified. No arrests.

News conference is scheduled for 5PM ET.
