    No doubt. High concentration of people and a symbolic day on the calendar.

    It was a controlled explosion, the bomb squad found a third bomb and are detonating themselves.

    The Boston Globe ‏@BostonGlobe 6m
    Officials: There will be a controlled explosion opposite the library within one minute as part of bomb squad activities.

    My son and his grandmother just left the area when the explosion occurred.. they called once to let us know they were okay and now they can't be reached... her cell phone keeps calling but no connection once you pick up.

    if they said they were OK, they are probably OK


    cell phone towers get overloaded really quickly in this sort of situation.

    Numerous reports of ball bearings, etc. found at the scene. Not good at all.

    Cell towers shutting down in certain areas. Phones transmitting may detonate remotes to explosives.

    Avoid using anything remote (remote keys, phones, etc.) near anything right now.

    They shut down the cell phone systems so that possible devices can not be detonated via cell phones.
