    BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – An apparent explosion has hit the finish line area of the Boston Marathon.

    Witnesses reported hearing a loud explosion near the finish line just before 3 p.m. Video from Skyfox showed a number of emergency crews in the area tending to victims.

    There appeared to be blood on the ground near the finish line.

    Reuters was reporting that the Boston Marathon headquarters were in lockdown.

    No other details were available.

    LE needs facebook posts, tweets, pictures...anything from people who were in the area. They have to be able to collect statements some way and piece it all together.

    PLEASE-if you were in the area, please call LE with instagram, twitters, photos on facebook. If you had someone there who was txting you, tweeting you please call LE

    They did NOT find any other unexploded explosive devices, just the two that went off.

    Deval Patrick-"After yesterdays act of terror..."

    Two and only two explosive devices were found yesterday. No other unexploded devices were found. Over 150 people were injured, some gravely.

    He shouts out to the first responders.

    Everyone should expect continued heightened police presence-people should have heightened vigilance.

    I agree (pretty amazing that we are actually on the same side of an issue!).

    But the two trauma surgeons that I saw both said there was no shrapnel from the bombs themselves, that they only saw random debris that was blasted into wounds. Could be the zippers were from the backpack or bystander clothing.

    Any word on the man that lost both legs? It is amazing he survived at all.
