How to help in the aftermath of Boston Marathon twin bombing

How to help in the aftermath of Boston Marathon twin bombing, Millions of Americans are praying for the victims of the Boston Marathon twin bombing and are wondering what they can do to help families, friends and the residents of Boston following the tragic terrorist attack.

On April 15 MEMA, The Massachusetts Emergency Medical Agency, tweeted a request that if you are trying to reach someone, text, do not call. Texting takes less bandwidth than a phone call and is your best option to reach your friends and family. The Boston mayor’s hotline is a land line option. Call (617) 635-4500.

Use the Red Cross “Safe and Well” registry if you are in the Boston area to let loved ones know you are safe. The Red Cross also urges you to update your social media pages if at all possible.
