America pauses to remember Boston's victims

BOSTON (AP) -

People in Boston and other cities paused today to observe a moment of silence for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings one week after the explosions.

Two bombs exploded at 2:50 p.m. a week ago Monday as runners were crossing the finish line about four hours into the Boston Marathon. Three people were killed and more than 200 were injured. Many lost limbs.

At the statehouse in Boston, lawmakers are taking a break to gather outside and remember. One of the suspected bombers died after a shootout with police and the other has been charged with using a weapon of mass destruction to kill.

    Stone County Emergency Management Director Raven James says he hasn’t seen this much rain a long time, but as quickly as the rain fell, it’s receding. Reports indicate as much as seven inches of rain fell on Wiggins and its surrounding communities. James said throughout the morning downpour, ditches filled up, spilling water on to several roads.
