    RT @NBCSN: Reports of Marathon Runners who crossed finish line, continued to run to Mass General Hospital to give blood to victims

    This is touching - made me cry. God bless the runners and victims of this horrible tragedy!

    Boston is a very diverse city with all kinds of different ethnic groups, and it's possible that a person could be both an immigrant and acting for reasons related to identifying as a local. (Not trying to imply an opinion about anything -- that's just information.)

    JFK Library ‏@JFKLibrary 4m

    All staff and visitors are safe and accounted for. Thank you.

    Investigators are investigating. Any tie to Boston Marathon explosions is pure speculation. More information as we receive it.

    It would be great if the media was consistently more responsible in their reporting especially now in the immediate aftermath as people in/around Boston are relying on their reports.

    I understand the utter chaos and the social media frenzy and the need to get everything out STAT but at this point media orgs need to report accurate helpful information if not blatantly false potentially more complicating info.

    ie... The ENTIRE city needs to evacuate.

    If people can't get in touch with loved ones by cell they are relying on the media and this faulty reporting is not good.

    About fifteen miles I'd say, but I'm not real good with that kind of thing. Certainly not close.

    I'd call for you, but we don't have a landline anymore, just mobiles. :(

    So many devices-I would guess more than one person involved.

    It's great they have a person of interest in custody, but this doesn't seem like a single person event.

    Boston Police PIO says the 3rd explosion at JFK Library was due to an unrelated fire, NOT related to explosions near marathon finish line.
