The office of Gov. Butch Otter has forwarded a statement from Idaho’s Bureau of Homeland Security, in light of the bombings in Boston, Mass., Monday afternoon.

“Idaho’s emergency management and law enforcement community are coordinating with each other and sharing information with authorities in regard to the event in Boston,” said the statement.

At approximately 2:50 p.m. Eastern time, two explosions occurred near the finish line at the Boston Marathon. Later in the afternoon a third explosion was confirmed near the JFK Library at Harvard University. Authorities in the area report two deaths, and 23 injuries as a result of the bombings.

In response, New York City has deployed an additional 1,000 police officers to protect “prominent locations” within the city. In Washington, D.C., the U.S. Secret Service has shut down Pennsylvania Avenue.

Otter’s office and Idaho’s Bureau of Homeland Security further notes that “there are no specific threats to Idaho at this time. As always, we remind Idahoans to report any suspicious activity to authorities.”
