Statement From Governor Chafee About Incident at Boston Marathon

I was shocked and saddened to learn of the events that have taken place in Boston today. The thoughts and prayers of the people of our state are with the victims and their families and all of our neighbors in Massachusetts.

Representatives of the Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency, National Guard, and State Police are in close contact with their counterparts in Massachusetts and have offered their full support and cooperation during this difficult time.

Thankfully, I have not learned of any Rhode Islanders injured, but my office will provide an update should any further information become available.
