    OSTON — Authorities are investigating a report of two explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.There were two booms heard from near the finish line inside the Fairmount Copley Plaza Hotel.
    Race officials locked down the hotel because of the report.
    The sound of two booms, which sounded like thunder, had come a short time earlier.

    Not good, they just had a guy said there are multiple dead, and some of the feeds you are seeing are pretty gruesome... This does not look good

    let's not jump to conclusions. The main news outlet's are only reporting injuries. I'm still hoping for the best.

    Me too, that's why I said above that it doesn't seem in line with what others are reporting... But to tweet it twice, seems like there'd be a reason. Sean Kelly is reputable.

    They showed a guy that looks like he lost his legs....really bad, and if there were 2 explosions my guess is someone planted a few bombs...sick as hell
