Today two separate explosions occurred close to the finish line of the famed Boston Marathon. At last report, at least two people are confirmed dead and 23 injured. The eastern Mass. Red Cross has moved in to provide aid. Those on social media are asked to tweet to allow anyone in area bars and restaurants to know they will be sweeping the streets. http://t.co/GtUhyThYL7
