Boston.com's twitter feed is saying police are finding several secondary devices that didn't explode.

That's horrifying. I couldn't look at that without feeling sick.

My sister was pretty close, probably 4-5 blocks away, but she and her friends made it out fine. Walked all the way to Sullivan Sq. and my mother picked them up. I was driving from Kingston, RI to Providence as things were happening and it was the looooongest drive ever.

Reports of a 3rd explosion near the library. Maybe controlled?

I heard on NPR that that was controlled. Also reports of suspicious packages in Harvard Sq., but not sure if that is just an overabundance of caution.

All sorts of shit is being "reported" right now. It's chaos. We know there were two legit explosions, one controlled water bomb that was set by public officials. Federal authorities just came out and and used the word "bomb" for the first time in official capacity referring to the two explosions on a third device that was found and dismantled.

People were referring to two unexploded devices being found but the federal statement that was just put out only referred to one.

Reports of suspicious packages at subway stations and the like but I'm going to guess that is just noise.
