HORRID.

I just saw that Len on Facebook said he was safe.

Amanda is fine - been tweeting up a supportive storm from
her bookstore hangout in Cambridge.
Brian is in NYC (to the best of my knowledge).

For those who need to follow this minute-to-minute,
Sean just set up a twitter list of reputable twitter feeds:

I was home and didn't hear either explosions from 3.5 miles away.

Amanda hit a twitter limit.  She and Neil have talked.

Team AFP is working on this:

They are looking for reputable places for people to donate and help.

I am OK, although I'm not sure if newbies know me.

Renegade and his seem to be OK via Facebook.

Jarboe is OK via Facebook.

Official police advice for Bostoners: stay at home, away from crowds.

Offer your home up in Boston here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1dqIKVq6IqX4BVXqOW_a9-qmXt1KJ_4Nu3NPNnC1g1mw/viewform

I'm away from home in CT right now, but if you need a hug, I'll be back by Wednesday.

I'll post again if I learn of anything specific that out-of-towners can do (but I'm sure that Amanda and Sean will be on it as well).

For now, find someone who needs it and hug them hard.

I might not be around as much as before, but all you guys are still on my mind a lot. Glad to hear Amanda, Musings and Len are okay. I hope everyone else here is okay too. Such a tragic and horrible thing that happened today. I had to switch off the news at one point, it made me so sad and sick to my stomach. Too many people lost their lives, and too many people were harmed in such a terrible way. My thoughts are with all of them and their families.

Stay safe, everyone <3

Unless your friend was planning on being a spectator at the finish line of the Marathon, she is probably fine.  This was a very localized event.  (I'm not trying to be dismissive or diminish your emotion, but am trying to reassure you.)  Also remember that cell phone service in downtown Boston is very iffy at the moment, due to overwhelmed lines.  Do you know what part of Boston she is from?
