Two explosions went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, witnesses told NBC News.

Video from the finish line showed screams and an enormous cloud of white smoke, and about 20 seconds between the explosions. The Associated Press reported that bloody spectators were being carried to a medical tent that had been set up to care for tired runners.

Jackie Bruno, a reporter for New England Cable News, said on Twitter that she saw people’s legs blown off.

Oh my goodness, this just makes me sick.  Why would anyone do something like this?  Praying for all of those impacted by such a senseless act..

OMG, what awful news :( I hope that nobody was seriously injured, but that doesn't sound like it's the case.

No, it looks like there are a few casualties and lots and lots of people injured. :(

I don't understand people.
