There have been multiple explosions at the finish line for the Boston Marathon, with reports of at least “dozens” of injuries.
In the aftermath of the explosions, much of the city’s transportation systems are shutting down. Marathon Monday is a major holiday in Boston, and many public transportation services were already operating on alternate schedules.
In a press conference earlier this afternoon, the Boston Fire Department recommended that people stay home, and that those staying in hotels should return to their hotels.
The Federal Aviation Administration has announced a temporary flight restriction for Boston, and directs pilots to check Notices to Airmen (NOTAMS):
Pilots: *Short notice* There is a TFR in Boston, MA. Please check NOTAMs.1.usa.gov/XNyGqC
