Reporting a third bomb went off, supposedly detonated or contained so the area was cleared.

Also noticed how far apart the first two bombs were. Hard to imagine how it could be an accident.

Video of the two explosions. Interesting that it is on the opposite side from the stands. Maybe that points to an accident/"good fortune"?



It COULD be a gas explosion. Let's hope, as that would mean they weren't targeting the event.

That is my hope, too...

Can someone post the status of our V-Teamers? Who is unaccounted for?

The second explosion occurred about 100 yards from the finish line about 15 seconds after the first explosion.

CBS is reporting a 3rd bomb was detected, but was exploded by the bomb squad. New England Cable News is reporting the same. And the Boston Globe is reporting the same.

Schumachers are okay. Jon C posted on facebook he's okay.

I don't know if anyone has heard from John P or Vivian yet.

Correction, third "explosion". May have been an intentional detonation of a suspicious object.

Sounds like the 3rd explosion was a controlled detonation.

Schuey and Lisa are accounted for. John P is accounted for, via Lisa on Facebook.

Michele should have finished before Vivian and John P.

So, explosion was at 2:45, or 4:45 after Wave 1 started and 4:25 after Wave 2.

David says Vivian started at 10:30, and finished in 4:09:xx so she would have finished just before.

CBS is reporting that USAF fighters have been scrambled for Boston to see if anything is suspicious, Boston PD is to have a news conference around 4:30 ET and Pennsylvania Avenue is being shut down by the Secret Service.

Excellent question, Martin. I was wondering who's gun time that was given all the various starting times.

Yep, and he said it happened a few minutes after he finished, so I'm not sure if the clock reports we're getting are right.
