Two Explosions in London Underground
(9:30AM)For anyone wondering, I am safe and sound. However, getting home tonight might be a bit of a challenge. The entire London underground network is shut down. So are much of the overhead rail lines. Hopefully, things will be back up and running but as the story of what happened is still unravelling, it might end up being a long trek home.
Update (10:53AM): It is getting more serious. Several buses have blown up. So I’m now thinking this was a terrorist attack. As such, there is no way I am getting on a train or a bus tonight. I am walking all the way to Wimbledon.
Update (11:00AM): Another bus has blown up. It may not make sense to walk home. So for now we stay in the building. However, its two buildings down from the London Stock Exchange so I’m trying my best not to freak out.
Update (11:29AM): Discussion going on about whether or not to leave the bulding. There is a rail station below.
Update (11:35AM): In the middle of all this madness, colleagues from a different division are thinking of taking the Eurostar to Brussels.
Update (11:41Am): Apparently there are more bombs in the subway. We are leaving the building.
Update (2:11PM): I’m home safe. A million things running through my mind. Will write more later. For now, I just want to go curl up under the covers.
