  • NYC post said 12 dead. Reporters are idiots. Fill the air, don't care with what

  • I am 8 miles from Dowtown Boston. There is over 100 people hurt. It is very sad. Many runners are at the hotel I am staying at.

  • DJ was headed there today. I hope she's not around that area.

  • 2 friends running today, one came through at 4:01 (bomb went off at 4:10) and another that got rerouted. Both saying chaotic as a description is mild. But no word on cause/blame.Lots of injured spectators (more than runners).

  • My son is up there for a college visit. He was in a store and felt everything shake. He said the college tours were cancelled, and they spent the rest of the day avoiding crowds of people running and trying to get back to the hotel because trains/subways were shut down.
    Cell networks were overloaded. As the news was breaking all I got was "the call can not be completed". I had a little heart attack for about an hour till I heard from him, but I knew he shouldn't have been near the marathon.

  • All I've heard is that there were many people who lost limbs so it's apparently a significant event :(

    Answer by Mrs_Prissy at 3:19 PM on Apr. 15, 2013

  • I hope no one is seriously injured or dead :( I know there is injuries but that's all our news have reported.
