CNN just reported as well.
BOSTON Two explosions have been reported near the Boston Marathon finish line on Boylston Street, and there are reports of injuries.
Crews were sent to 617 Boylston St. at about 2:30 p.m. Witnesses said several victims lost limbs, and the area was being evacuated.
NewsCenter 5’s Sean Kelly said police were seen sprinting to the area.
NewsCenter 5 and WCVB.com will have more information when it becomes available.
Near the finish line grand stands sounds like.
Shep reporting from the AP:
Two explosions, from or near the Fairmont Copley Hotel
Two Booms, sounding like thunder
Race is ongoing, Boston Marathon.
Live video feed shows people lying on street, smoke from a store front?
Scaffolding around the Marathon finish line all over the place
Looks like terrorism to me..if it was some sort of underground explosion(Like a gas leak) would it explode twice? Seems very odd..prayers up to those injured..hearing there are limbs everywhere
ch 4 Boston
BOSTON (CBS) Several people have been hurt in two explosions near the Boston Marathon finish line.
It happened around 2:45 p.m. outside Marathon Sports on Boylston Street, according to WBZ-TVs Lis Hughes, who was near the scene covering the marathon.
There were two incredibly powerful explosions just seconds apart, according to Hughes.
Just got home, gettting ready to set up the Sean Hannity Show Thread.
missing limbs I hear??
Just more proof we need tighter gun laws. /< s>
And high capacity magazines. Those are REALLY bad.
Prayers to victims and families.
From Boston Globe’s Twitter feed:
Prayers for all injured.
The fireball looks pretty big, but smaller than what you would expect from Al Qaeda. Maybe a freelance jihadi.
Prayers for the victims.
Look closely at the photo in #6.
