YDR journalist in Boston

Hannah Sawyer, a journalist on the Night News and Digital desk, was going to be on vacation in Boston this weekend. After the tragedy at the marathon, she offered to help Digital First journalists stationed in Boston with whatever they needed today, Friday. So last night, before the search started, she hit the road. By the time she arrived this morning, with really no sleep, the manhunt was fully underway. She has been helping gather some of the information about what is going on. Here are some of her tweets:

About 11:30 a.m.:  Police processing CRV: 

About 11:25: UMass Dartmouth in process of controlled evacuation of campus: 

About 7 a.m.: Some people still on streets despite police order to stay inside.

About 7 a.m. Watertown on lockdown. At Watertown mall.
