Several WabashValley residents were in Boston for the marathon that was rocked by two explosions Monday. 

Mike Morris, Vigo County Council member and owner of Morris Trucking, safely completed the Boston Marathon about 20 minutes prior to the explosions. 

Morris and his wife both heard, and felt the explosions when they occurred earlier. 

Michelle Nutter, principal at DeVaney Elementary, had just crossed the finish line at the Boston Marathon about 10 minutes before two explosions occurred.

Majel Wells is also from Terre Haute and was in the race and was also not injured in the explosions.

 Former Terre Haute South Coach Pat Rady was in Boston and was sitting in a grandstand right across the street from where the first bomb detonated.

He was there to see his two sons compete.

One son, Michael, had finished the race, but another son, Patrick, had not.

Patrick was within 50 yards of where the second explosion occurred.

Both were unharmed.

Michael currently lives in Crawfordsville and works for Pepsi while Michael teaches at Cloverdale High School. Laura Link from Effingham, Illinois was at the race with her husband and they are also reportedly safe.

 A total of 283 people from Indiana were registered for the race, along with another 974 from Illinois.

Three people were killed and over 100 others were hurt.
