There was a third explosion in Boston, at the JFK Library. It is unknown if it is related to the other two. No further info on Library casualties.

The library is now being reported as a fire rather than an explosion.


Prayers to all the first responders and military members out there.


 


Not sure how accurate it is, but NY Post is reporting someone is in custody at a hospital, a Saudi national.

FAA has issued a no-fly order over the area from the surface to 3000 feet and out to 2 nautical miles radius.


"No pilots may operate an aircraft in the areas covered by this NOTAM (except as described).


ONLY RELIEF AIRCRAFT OPERATIONS UNDER DIRECTION OF MASS"


http://tfr.faa.gov/save_pages/detail_3_2050.html


 


I wonder if that "2 nautical miles" is a typo. That doesn't seem adequate for a major metro area in a situation like this.

Picking up news as I can find it.


E/R doctors saying they are pulling ball bearings out of people. Ummmm, that's not an accident.


I was gearing up to qualify for the Boston a few years ago. Never made the cut.

I've also heard they're pulling shrapnel and glass out of folks, in addition to the ball bearings! Additionally, there have been reports of a 3rd device found and blown by EOD Units; and quite possibly a fourth. This was according to CNN and Boston's Commissioner.


My thoughts and prayers to all first responders as well as the victims and those families!!

I'm boiling over.  I wish the Boston Police, the FBI and all coordinating agencies a fruitful investigation and a speedy capture of any and all of the bombers and their accomplices.

With this and similar incidents occuring here and to our citizens around the globe the past dozen or so years we must know something.Quite frankly I am well past sick and tired of sanctions against the countries we know are responsible.It's quite similiar to the brain dead bully we officers find on the streets.There is only one thing they understand.It is way past time our government got off their dead a$$es and took some positive action immediately after discovering the countries bankrolling these pukes.I'm an Army vet and probably the oldest person on this link.I would be proud to take up arms again,get the politicians the HE-- out of my way and have a go at these freaks.God bless Boston and God bless America.

I agree,


This is getting old.


We need to quit pussyfooting around hoping each dirtbag we find will lead us to someone bigger, and just stomp on them every time we find them.

God bless Boston and the USA during this tragic time. I pray for the Emergency Services workers this includes my fellow brothers and sisters in blue and brown. May God Himself watch over each and everyone of you during this difficult time.

My prayers go out to the victims and those responding to assist the victims.  Let's hope bringing the suspect(s) of this attack to justice is far swifter and far more heavy-handed than how we are currently handling North Korea.

Condolences to the families and friends of the deceased.


Prayers for the injured.


Kudos to the all the 1st responders (Police, Fire, Medical) and to the civilians who immediately went to assist the victims w/o regard to their own safety.


Appropriate justice for the person(s) responsible for the horrific act...

Some news sources, and I say 'news' lightly, has reported an arrest was made but that has not been confirmed by authorities.


CNN:  The suspect is a dark skinned male who was caught on video at the venue with a suspicious backpack.  Looking at the suspect on CNN, he doesn't appear dark skinned but he looks h3lla suspicious.


In related news, a letter filled with RICIN has been sent to the POTUS and Senator Wicker (R) of Mississippi.  I didn't hear the entirety of the letters, but they both were similiar and asking how they can sit back why things happen?  Drone Strikes, Wars, idunno?


Boston is a college town, perhaps this is a domestic or foreign student?  A drop out?


I commend the work of all involved, and all who sprung into action during and after.  Oh, and a special shout out to the Investigators!


Heck, I might even attend this race next year if they shorten it by a few miles.

I no longer take any media outlet as gospel, however, this is the image CNN aired of alleged suspect.
