Friends have been texting that they've been finding possible threats all over, we're staying in and trying to stay safe. Sirens going off all over the place.

Stay safe, and I hope nothing else happens.

Wow...I was just in Boston last week. Wanted to stay an extra day for the Marathon, but flew back late last night. I was staying a block and a half from where the explosions were.

Scary stuff. Thoughts are with the victims and their families.

Hearing that a suspect is being held, possibly a Saudi national. Edit: Boston PD deny.

This is crazy keep hearing of new incidents going on around the city, really glad we stayed in today.
