This is sounding more and more horrifying as the news comes in.

Now they are saying "devices" so this was deliberate.

Its horrible. They are reporting severe injuries with people losing limbs and a lot of blood at the scene. If this is terrorism, whoever did this, planned it to get the most amount of people which is so very sick. http://live.boston.com/Event/2013_Bosto ... _live_blog

Just fyi, before clicking the link in the OP, be prepared that there is a lot of blood visible.

From what I've heard it was pipe bombs, but we don't know any more than anyone else.

Yeah, I haven't heard anything about devices. Where are you seeing that?

...oh, CNN has eyewitnesses identifying "packages" or "bags." Okay.

I used to walk to work by there every day.

I would walk by this area ALL of the time. It's so weird to see these photos. I keep typing stuff and erasing it. I don't even know what to say. I just want everyone to pull through. I'm waiting to hear from my friends.

They're reporting that the police found a third device and detonated it. They're sending in buses and shuttles to the area to take people home.

I just saw on Tumblr and thought (hoped) it was an internet prank. I hope Bostom PPKers are safe!

They keep finding new bombs. ATF officers just detonated a third one. They are warning people to stay away from garbage cans

They found more bombs: http://www.theverge.com/2013/4/15/42277 ... inish-line

ETA: Tofulish beat me to it! I'm also reading on Tumblr to stay away from the UMASS library and JFK library.

What do you mean "keep finding?" a total of three or they have now denoted three that are other than the two explosions and the one ther?

Thanks. News reports are really all over the place.

I'm getting chills just thinking that it seems we got "lucky" that most of them didn't denote.

If anyone is trying to stay up to date but feel triggered by the gory photos, the Boston Globe is tweeting updates: https://twitter.com/BostonGlobe

I keep trying to think of things to say, but can't come up with anything. This is our little town—I can't imagine anything like this happening particularly in a specific area of the city where I spent huge portions of my teenage years.

WBUR is reporting live by radio if anyone can't do video: http://www.wbur.org/listen/live

NDPittman works near there and she's checked in and said she's okay. Her office was closed and she's on her way home.

They've reported they found one or two more bombs.

The third explosion (at JFK library) wasn't done by police, it was a third bomb. :(
