Governor Dannel Malloy has ordered U.S. and Connecticut flags to fly at half-staff in honor of the victims of Monday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon.
Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton says the city is on heightened alert and follows a security protocol set up by homeland security.
Metro North increased security along the commuter railroad in response to the bombings.
The 26th mile of the Boston Marathon was dedicated to Newtown victims. Karen Alexander, of Sandy Hook, who was scheduled to run but stayed home, said she heard from all the local participants, and they were safe. Alexander said the group completed the race before the explosions.
