Post-Boston, security officials are vigilant

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Security officials are even more vigilant than usual in the wake of Monday’s bombings at the Boston Marathon.

The attack left three people dead and more than 170 injured.

It is business as usual today at the Ohio Union on the OSU campus after an unattended backpack set off alarms yesterday.

University officials say police sealed off the student center around 5:00 p.m. night when the bag was found outside the building.

It turned out to be nothing more than books, but OSU police say renewed vigilance is important after the Boston incident.

In Cleveland, authorities shut down a rapid transit rail station and closed streets and a stretch of interstate on the city’s east side after a suspicious backpack was found.

The backpack was found at the E. 55th Street station, forcing the evacuation of the station, the closing of roads at E. 55th and Woodland Avenue and a temporary shutdown of I-490.

The bag contained only personal items and no explosives.
