Boston Marathon Rocked by Explosions
by

Gruesome chaos today at the Boston Marathon:

Two explosions have been reported near the Boston Marathon finish line on Boylston Street as thousands of people gathered for the race, and there are reports of injuries.

The blasts happened at about 2:50 p.m. near the intersection of Boylston and Exeter streets. Store fronts have been blown out, and there have been reports of dozens of injuries.

Witnesses said several victims lost limbs, and the area was being evacuated.

At least six people are reported injured. No word yet on whether this was accidental or an attack. If you want a sense of how bad this is, the Daily Beast tweeted a (very graphic) photo of the scene following the explosions.

UPDATE: Boston police are reporting that two are confirmed dead and 28 are injured.
