Here is the Google News Link for this story. Google updates in real time as stories are published and indexed on various news sites, so this is probably as good as it gets for a real time news feed.

From what I could gather, 2 are dead and 22 injured, there were 3 explosions, 1 controlled by the police. As of now they are checking all the bags left by runners and spectators on the sidewalks for more explosive devices

12:50 PM PT -- The New York Post is now saying at least 12 people are dead.

Also folks - be aware that at this stage in the news cycle pretty much no one knows anything, and 90% of everything's gonna be issued a correction later by MSM.  That said it still helps to know what's going on now

As best as I can tell the New York Post is the only major outlet reporting 12 dead instead of 2. Either way this is just horrible.

Yes, everyone else is reporting 2 deaths and 22 injuries thus far.

Boston.com has a good feed going.  Today was a "Work from Home" exercise, so I wasn't in the city, but coworkers at the building could hear the blasts.  Thankfully, all are accounted for.

This.  And it's the early, entirely wrong statements that will be still be getting repeated months later.

Orallo: Boston police confirms another explosion at JFK Library


I'm seeing that it's unrelated, a failure in the mechanical room.

Boston city councilor on Howie Carr show said he was told there was a bomb in Charlestown, but didn't know where.

Best I've found by far:

Boston.com's live blog feed. Covers other news reporting agencies along with federal, state and local resources.

I was wondering how long it would be before the crackpots came out. Not long apparently.

A friend works at the library, she posted this on Facebook:

"Thanks to everyone who has checked in--I'm okay. Explosions were outside the library, but it's closed today. Pray/send good thoughts to those who weren't so lucky."

That was an oddly directional explosion, almost like a shaped charge.

the NY Post is reporting that a Saudi National is being held as a suspect at the hospital. Take that with a gran of salt.

To reiterate from the other thread, phone lines, particularly cell phones, are jammed, including text messages.  Try email, although even the web is running slow for me now, and don't panic if you can't raise a loved one right away.

Press report says the JFK library was a "possibly related" incident, but they are treating it as related until they know any further. They are still telling people to stay inside and not congregate in crowds, so I assume this is evolving and they have nobody in custody.
 
2013-04-15 04:56:27 PM
Don't bother with the freepers, I just browsed over there and it's as disgusting as ever.

You should write a book explaining how this works!

They are the only ones reporting that.

Side note, I totally called that Fark was die due to the speed of the threads. It always happens during these crazy events. YOU CANT DO THAT TO ME DREW! gawddammit.

Just looks like the package was up against a building, so it was all forced outward towards the crowd.

They are the only ones I've read saying more than 2 dead. Has there been any other confirmation on that?

How can anyone say who did what. While I don't agree with these people or their policies, I'm not ready to sacrifice liberty for something something maybe sorta looks like security.
