My family member finished a minute and a half before the first explosion. Her husband went to the finish line t o hug her so they both lucked out by a small margin of time. I am waiting to hear from 2 cousins but they would not have been that close to the finish line yet so they should be fine.

I believe I heard that there was on local WBz channel 4 and other bad injuries that could turn into fatalities.

CNN is saying the same thing.

Security has also been heightened around landmarks in NYC.

My one niece left about an hour before the explosion thankfully. Waiting to hear on another.

This is awful. Not only do I know several people running, but a lot of people who work in the area. I just checked my one friends FB page and thankfully she is ok, just shaken up.

Saw this on my Facebook feed. They had stopped all the runners.

I sincerely hope there is no connection between the dedication to the Newtown victims and the explosions .

How awful. DH had always wanted to run the Boston, the Holy Grail of marathons.

Thoughts and prayers to all affected.

I think if it was a bomb that it was caused by the high profile event rather than Newtown. People come in from all over the world and it is a big revenue stream for the area.

Boston Mayor Menino jsut broke his leg. He won't be getting much rest now with all this.

Third explosion

Sounds like the police found it this not accidental

We have four friends running in the race and we're on pins and needles now. I think all the runners are safe but one of our friends was less than five minutes away from finishing five minutes before the explosions so we're worried about her family.
