Our thoughts and prayers are with the city of Boston this morning and with the men and women from our area and around the world who participated in the marathon by running or cheering on a friend or family member. 3 people were killed and more than 110 injured after two bombs exploded near the marathon's finish line.
Here's Video of Monday's bomb blasts near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, in case you missed it...
Runners from our area participated in the Boston Marathon, known as the World Series of Running.
George Cook from Lynchburg said he had already crossed the finish line and was in his hotel room when he heard two big booms.
Jordan Whitlock of Madison Heights had also finished the race before the two blasts and said about a half million people are at the finish line to cheer you on. His prayers were with those who were injured or killed.
David Tingler from Salem had also finished the race. He said his wife and friends had been standing just a few store fronts down from where the explosion happened and had left that area after he finished the race.
The two bombs exploded near the finish line injuring more than 110 and killing 3 people, including an 8-year old. ABC 13 spoke with George and Jordan...WSET.com - ABC13
