That's just awful. I hope all the injured make swift recoveries in the hospital, and that more news about what caused the explosions is released.

Checked a few sites for information. As of now, there are at least 2 killed and 12 injured. All off-duty Boston cops are being ordered to report for duty.

Edit: Scratch that, at least 23 wounded.

Several reports of "really, really bloody" people and missing limbs among the wounded.

Haven't seen reports anywhere else of more than 2 dead. Not impossible, but not confirmed anywhere else yet.

ABC reporting that Boston police have found several more explosive devices -- unsure if it's at least three, or at least five.

Twitter has been absolutely amazing for updates and information. I'll try to post things as they come in, too.

Also for what Telvanni just said:
The Associated Press ‏@AP 16m
BREAKING: Boston police commissioner: 3rd explosion at JFK Library

No links, most sites and stuff are likely experiencing heavy traffic.

As much as you guys hate Reddit this is incredibly useful:

http://www.reddit.com/r/news/comment...at_the_boston/

Update 41 (4:56 PM ET): BPD looking for video of the moments before, during, and after the explosions. As we can see just from this live update thread, there have been several. They want to comb over to try to find clues. All tips can be called in at 1 800 494 TIPS.
Update 42 (4:59 PM ET): VERY closeup and clear video of the explosion, http://www.boston.com/video/viral_pa...=2303076923001
Update 43 (5:00 PM ET): Edward Davis: JFK incident was not a controlled explosion, was definitely an "incident." (read into that however you'd like.)
Update 44 (5:01 PM ET): Scanner sourced: Coplin mall security has on footage someone setting down a package then running out the mall.
Update 45 (5:03 PM ET): Cellphone service shut down in Boston to prevent remote detonations of explosives, official says: http://apne.ws/ZwBMKb

Also I can't get Twitter to load anymore. :U

But for anyone searching for family members Red Cross is having people register at Safe & Well. Try checking there for them.
https://safeandwell.communityos.org/...esearch/search - Do not click this unless you are looking for somebody, traffic on this website is bad enough as it is.


Edit: Google has one posted now.

JFK Library folks say there was a fire; it was unrelated. Boston residents are advised to stay indoors and/or to not travel in large groups.

I saw the same picture, but there was no context. It's a man being arrested at Boston Common, but that's all the information I've seen with it.

^ what Frent said

so far BPD has denied any claims that a person of interest has ben arrested, despite several news sources claiming it. Though it's certainly something to keep an eye on!

There is no suspect in custody. False alarm.

Per the New York Times: "The Boston Police said that they were questioning multiple people but that no suspects were in custody. No one has claimed responsibility for the explosions."

Speaking at the White House, President Obama said that the government does not yet know who was responsible for the blasts in Boston, and warned that “people should not jump to conclusions,” but promised: “we will find out who did this and we will hold them accountable.”

Wise advice. Probably should wait until an official confirmation is given.

Lord knows I jumped on that arrested man.

Pictures of the aftermath.

Note that one is a very graphic image of a man in a wheelchair whose legs are torn apart.

Anybody on the boards live in Boston? Or a runner/running enthusiast who might have been there? Is everybody OK?
