University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.“They kept making announcements on the loud speaker that it was just a drill and there was nothing to worry about,” Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15. “It seemed like there was some sort of threat, but they kept telling us it was just a drill.”

OFFICIALS MAY HAVE HAD PRIOR KNOWLEDGE:
A startling report from Paul Joseph Watson has revealed that officials may have had prior knowledge of an impending terror attack.
An eyewitness to the two explosions at the Boston Marathon today said that a “drill” was repeatedly announced before the bombs exploded and that he “thought it was odd” bomb sniffing dogs were in place before the blast.
University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15 News, ““They kept making announcements on the loud speaker that it was just a drill and there was nothing to worry about. “It seemed like there was some sort of threat, but they kept telling us it was just a drill.”
The news station also reports that Stevenson “thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.”
Stevenson then describes hearing the explosions as he ran away from the scene, having just completed the marathon.
If this report is accurate, it clearly suggests there could have been some degree of prior knowledge of the bombing, which killed two people and injured at least 23.
Multiple explosions have rocked the Boston Marathon, causing at least two deaths and tearing apart numerous limbs.
A third explosion is now being reported at JFK Library with officials searching the city for any other previously placed bombs.
A report from CBS News documented those that have been confirmed dead:
Two bombs exploded near the finish of the Boston Marathon on Monday, killing two people, injuring 22 others and sending authorities rushing to aid wounded spectators at America’s oldest and most prestigous marathon, race organizers and police said.
One runner, a Rhode Island state police officer, said he saw at least two dozen people with very serious injuries, including missing limbs.
About two hours after the winners crossed the finish line, there was a loud explosion on the north side of Boylston Street, just before the photo bridge that marks the line. Another explosion could be heard a few seconds later.
During a news conference featuring Boston officials, it was confirmed that a third explosion had hit but that information was still trickling in that could confirm that.
The first two explosions occurred during the last mile of the race which had been dedicated to the Newtown victims families.
The last mile of the marathon was dedicated to the victims of the Newtown shooting. Family members were at the race near the finish line but no injuries to those families have been reported.
Fox News has also confirmed that there are reports that a suspect whom suffered shrapnel wounds is being guarded at a local Boston hospital.
