Sickening, and they said mile 26 was dedicated to the victims of the Newtown shootings.

A life long dream to run the Boston marathon turns into a nightmare.

Prayers for everyone effected.

Let's hope, but I'm doubtful.

I have a number of friends who ran the race today - thankfully, they have checked-in, safe-and-sound. My thoughts are with those who aren't.

Concur based on the shape of the explosion I saw, I'm guessing backpack bomb. Something similar in size.

My only question is local nut job-as in tax day, etc. or foreign.

I really hate this kind of stuff....

They just talked about the "device" on the sidewalk right in front of Marathon Sports. It appears that the majority of injuries (and deaths) were people on the sidewalk cheering on the runners. The second explosion was about 5 seconds later down the same street.

A bomb expert on CNN said based on his experience, the smoke looked like a black powder type device.

This is what happens when we stop taking both domestic and foreign terrorism seriously!

I got a text from the MBTA which runs the trains, buses and trolleys. Several underground stops have been shut down.

My DD who is at college called me to make sure I was ok.

That was my first thought. A homegrown nut or foreign. And they said today is Patriots Day in Boston? Something like that. Someone wanting to make a statement.

It's all over twitter that authorities have found a suspicious device in/in front of the Mandarin Hotel and that it is being evacuated. Don't know how true it is but many, many, many sources are tweeting it.
