I posted a few tweets about this in the Today's Quotes thread. Looks pretty serious.

Marathon tragedy RT @HuffPostMedia Fox News video of Boston explosion picks up a man saying, "Oh my God, they're dead."
Is that blood, or streamers? Please be streamers.
Signatures are stupid. You should block them.

This is nuts. Going to create a lot of speculation. The reports seem to be getting worse. Hopefully that stops now.
Reports are casualties well into double digits with many of the injured having lost limbs. Thoughts and prayers to all affected.

One physician has told CBS News area hospitals have gone on "disaster alert", to expect "multiple casualties"
I see lots of tweets about the local news showing a guy in a wheelchair with at least one of his legs blown off. Crazy.
Also, police scanners are indicating "another possible device" in the area.

Boston.com sports producer Steve Silva was near the finish line when the explosions occurred near the intersection of Boylston and Exeter streets.
"I was there at the finish, shooting finish line scenes, and then bang, it just went off, and then less than 15 to 20 seconds after there was a second explosion, closer to Fairfield street," Silva said.
"It was just immediately [evident] there were injuries, right in the middle of the spectator crowds. There was blood everywhere, there were victims being carried out on stretchers. I saw someone lose their leg, people are crying, people are confused."
"It was just an explosion, it came out of nowhere. There are multiple injuries. I saw dismemberment, I saw blood everywhere. People are badly injured."
BREAKING NEWS: Police will have controlled explosion on 600 block on Boylston Street
UPDATE: Reports of at least 12 dead, dozens more injured in Boston Marathon explosions http://nyp.st/ZlWY9t
Here we go again.
I hope much of the early reporting on this stuff is later proven false or exaggerated.

Boston PD says, as of now, 2 dead, 22 injured in Boston Marathon explosions.
After Newtown I said there would be another one and there will be another one after this. People just don't care about the person sitting next to them anymore.
There's the Boston scanner. They just said another explosion happened in the JFK library.

I can't imagine. Those pictures are gruesome. Blood all over the streets.
