    Said there was two explosions and they found more bombs in a hotel.

    They think the first explosion might have originated from a trash can.

      What...?

      It's most likely not a terrorist attack, probably just some crazy man with a grudge.

      Sad to see, sad that two people (thus far) died.

        That's a very tasteless thing to say.

        it would be as offensive as playing a twin towers map on the day of 9/11. This was a terrorist attack that killed 2 people, hospitalized 20, and blasted the limbs off of people.
        Two bombs at the marathon, and one bomb at the JFK Museum. It's a major terrorist attack.

        Playing NY Marathon at all today would be more tasteless than anything I said, and i'm only an hour away from boston.

        How did real life explosions evolve into ZE?

            Cell phone service has been shutdown in Downtown Boston since they think it might have been triggered through a call.


            From the looks of it the bombs are very low yield which is a good thing less lives lost or injured. Not much of a concussive force behind them. Although anyone caught in the shock wave will have internal damage if close enough to the initial blast. Probably a diesel and fertilizer mix roughly maybe no more than a 2-4 pound bomb. No word on if there was shrapnel attached to the outside of it.

            It's all still early but in an interview on fox news with a witness he said that he found a ball bearing in his jacket after the explosions so that could be a possibility.

            Damn ball bearings would rip you to shreds kinda of like the claymore mines. The amount of injuries jumped from 40+ to now 60+.

            Listening to @yougotmail police scanner makes it really scary though.

            A horrific tragic event. My thought and prayer for all those affected.
