At least 2 people are confirmed dead and dozens are injured, after  2 bombs were detonated near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. A 3rd explosion has taken place near the JFK Library.  Police are not sure if the 3rd explosion is related to the first 2.

Authorities are asking people in the Boston area not to leave their homes. If you are staying at a hotel, you are being asked to return to your hotel and not leave your room. Phone companies are turning off all cell phone service in the Boston area, so if you are trying to get a hold of a loved one, don’t panic if you can’t get through. They are cutting cell phone service as a precaution so no one can detonate any more explosions.

Dozens of people were taken to area hospitals with limbs blown off their bodies. One man who was covered in blood at the scene, wasn’t injured.  He was covered in blood because he carried someone to safety who had both legs blown off.

In an unrelated story, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam III had the FBI lock down his Pilot Flying J world headquarters around the same time as the explosion at the Boston Marathon.  Reports are coming out saying the FBI served a search warrant at the West Knoxville Tennessee headquarters of Pilot Flying J. No other details are known at this time.

Update: Cell phone companies are saying service is working in the Boston Area, original reports said the Police asked for service to be disconnected, but phone companies say they had no such requests.
