The blast came on Patriots Day, Obama noted, which is a state holiday in Massachusetts that celebrates the beginning of the American Revolution.

Online tools help people reconnect after bomb blasts

Following the confusion and panic caused by the Boston Marathon bomb blasts, websites have been set up for people to report that they're safe, or check in on a loved one.

The best mainstream resource is the Red Cross' Safe and Well site, where you do two things: register yourself as being "safe and well," or find out other people's status. Those people will have to register with the site first, of course.

Google has activated its Person Finder service to help people locate each other. The search giant has used this in the past, for both U.S. and international crises, such as the 2010 Haiti earthquake and Japan's 2011 tsunami strike.

If you have loved ones who ran in the Boston Marathon, you can check on their last check-ins at the marathon's website here. (A marathon enthusiast set up an independent Facebook page where some are checking in, too.)

Families searching for loved ones can call this number at the Boston mayor's office for information: 1-617-635-4520. Anyone with information about the blasts that can lead to an arrest are encouraged to call 1-800-494-TIPS, or text the word TIP to CRIME (27463).

American Red Cross Statement on Boston Marathon Explosions

The Red Cross has sent more than 100 additional blood products to several Boston area hospitals to help meet patient needs. Thanks to the generosity of volunteer blood donors, there is currently enough blood on the shelves to meet demand. People can call 1-800-RED CROSS or go to redcrossblood.org to schedule an appointment to give blood in the days and weeks ahead.

Cellphone service spotty but not 'shut down' in Boston area

Cellphone congestion following the Boston Marathon bombings has led to many dropped calls, but according to wireless carriers, service has remained operational.

"There was no damage to the Verizon Wireless network, which is seeing elevated calling and data usage throughout the region since the explosions occurred," reads Verizon's statement, sent to NBC News. 

Sprint's Crystal Davis told NBC News that despite "above-normal call blockage," Boston's Sprint network is "still operating." AT&T's official Twitter account tweeted, "Boston customers may have issues w/wireless voice & data service due to spike in network activity," but reported no outage.

During emergency situations, many people reach for their cellphones to let loved ones know they are OK. Invariably, the phones are already ringing nonstop from people who are seeking them as well. In times like these, the best advice is to make fewer calls, and use other means of communication.

"Customers are advised to use text or email to free up voice capacity for public safety officials at the scene," said Verizon. AT&T gave similar advice, and has made its Wi-Fi network around the marathon finish line free to the public for the time being.

Boston bombing aftermath: How you can help

House someone who is displaced
Boston.com has set up a Google Doc for those who need a place to stay or have a place to house runners who can't get back to their hotels or fly out of the city.

Do not rush to give blood in Boston
The Red Cross tweeted that there's is "enough blood on shelves to meet demand," following the tragedy in Boston. However, American Red Cross spokeswoman Anne Marie Borrego tells NBC News that she encourages those who want to help or give back in some way to schedule a time in the future to give blood. Most importantly, people — especially those in Boston — can help by visiting the Safe and Well website, and to "listen to local authorities."

2 killed, at least 120 injured in marathon blasts

 ::snipping2::

At least 125 people were brought in for treatment at seven area hospitals. Brigham and Women’s Hospital received the most, with 26 treated, including two in critical condition, hospital officials said

Asked if the explosions were a terrorist act, Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis said, “We’re not being definitive on this right now, but you can reach your own conclusions based on what happened.”

“The situation remains fluid and it remains too early to establish the cause and motivation,” the Boston FBI office said in a statement.

No suspects have been arrested, Davis said. “We’re questioning many people, but there is no one in custody at this point,” he said.

The Federal Aviation Administration said it had implemented a no-fly zone around an area of Boston at the request of law enforcement officials and temporarily stopped planes on the ground at Logan International Airport to change the runway configuration.

Davis said the attacks had occurred without warning. “There was no specific intelligence” suggesting an attack would take place, he said.

::snipping2::

Davis said that many people who fled the scene on Boylston Street left bags and parcels strewn along the route, and each of those items was being “treated as a suspicious device” and might be detonated by authorities.

Davis said he could not confirm reports that the bombs were placed in trash cans.

Davis also gave out two emergency phone numbers for people to call. Relatives of victims and anyone missing can call the mayor’s hotline at 617-635-4500, and anyone with information about the explosions should call police at 800-494-TIPS, he said.

The FBI said it had set up 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324), prompt #3, for anyone who had information, visual images, and/or details regarding the explosions.

“No piece of information or detail is too small,” the FBI said.

07:57 PM ET
*2 killed, more than 130 hurt in Boston Marathon bombing
Two killed – including 8-year-old boy – in bomb blasts near finish line of Boston Marathon, officials say. Area hospitals say at least 132 are injured, including eight children.
*Two explosions happened at about 2:50 p.m., more than two hours after the first of the race's nearly 27,000 runners had crossed the finish line.
*Boston.com journalist reports "blood everywhere," people missing limbs.
*Race called off; Red Cross and Google set up websites to help people find loved ones in the area
*Anderson Cooper anchors coverage of the explosions at the Boston Marathon on AC360 tonight at 8 ET.
*Check back here for updates; full story here; also, see CNN affiliates WBZ; WCVB; WHDH
[Update, 7:57 p.m. ET] Doctors are "pulling ball bearings out of people in the emergency room," a terrorism expert briefed on the investigation told CNN's Deborah Feyerick.

The same source said the blasts resulted in at least 10 lost limbs.

[Update, 7:43 p.m. ET] An 8-year-old boy was among those killed, a state law enforcement source said, according to CNN's John King.

[Update, 7:38 p.m. ET]
At least 132 people – including eight children – have been injured in the bombings, according to Boston-area hospitals. Boston police earlier said that two people were killed.

At least 17 of the injured are in critical condition, and at least 25 are in serious condition, area hospitals said.

[Update, 7:08 p.m. ET] A witness, Marilyn Miller, told CNN that she was about 30 feet away from the first bomb when it went off. The second bomb came about 12 seconds after and about 50 to 100 yards away from the first, according to authorities and an analysis of video from the site.

Miller was waiting for a runner who, it turns out, was probably about 10 minutes away from the finish line.

"We saw injuries all around us," Miller said. Someone was putting pressure on a woman's neck. "A little boy, his leg was torn up. A woman, (people) were (shouting), 'Critical, critical, get out of out way!'"

CBS: Saudi Man In Custody Was Tackled By Bystanders At Boston Marathon
April 15, 2015

The Saudi Arabian man who is reportedly in police custody following the Boston Marathon bombing was chased and tackled by bystanders shortly after the blast, according to CBS.
Senior correspondent John Miller, a former assistant director of the FBI, reported this:
There is an individual in custody … he is not free to go.
He is a Saudi national who was near the scene of the blast. When the blast happened he began to run. Now, in context, a lot of people began to run. A civilian who thought he was acting suspiciously chased him down and tackled him and then turned him over to Boston police, saying, I saw this guy hanging around over there acting suspiciously. And then he ran. That may mean a lot, it may mean nothing at all.
Miller added that the man was fully cooperative but was denying any involvement in the bombing.

This is just my opinion.

I think the reason there may be such conflicting reports about a suspect is because the police don't want anyone or a mob of people descending on the place he may or may not be being held.  I have seen the name of a hospital where the suspect is being held and then I have seen where the police are saying no one is in custody.  But this is jmo and not to be taken as gospel.

Also a suspect and a POI are two different things.

Now added to the above article underneath this line:

No suspects have been arrested, Davis said. “We’re questioning many people, but there is no one in custody at this point,” he said.

But just before 8 p.m., a “person of interest” was being questioned at Brigham and Woman’s Hospital in connection with the bombing according to an official briefed on the investigation. The individual was hurt in the explosion, the official said.
