Windows from the Marathon Sports store were blown out.  10 people.  One woman has lost her leg.  The two massive explosions happened seconds apart at 2:50pm. Boston Police and the US Army are asking for people to stay off of the streets in Boston’s Back Bay. The President has been notified.

Governor Patrick is calling it “a horrific attack”.  Boston Police Commissioner Davis says a third explosion has occurred at the JFK Library after 3 o’clock.  Was it a terrorist attack?  Commissioner Davis says they are not officially calling it a terrorist attack at this time, but that “people can draw their own conclusions”.

From the Boston Herald:

“I saw two explosions. The first one was beyond the finish line. I heard a loud bang and I saw smoke rising,” said Herald reporter Chris Cassidy, who was running in the marathon.“I kept running and I heard behind me a loud bang. It looked like it was in a trash can or something. That one was in front of Abe and Louie’s. There are people who have been hit with debris, people with bloody foreheads.”
