    Default Oh fuck, I hope everyone's alright.

    Just saw a news break saying that something, no one's sure whatexactly, has happened on the tube in London. I know there's a lot of Londoners on here, and I'm just hoping everyone's ok.

    big series of serial tube station explosions plus at least one bus explosion. at present officially being blamed on LU power surge but nothing's very clear at the moment. naturally timing with the olympic decision invites speculation of terrorists, but nothing is known for sure right now so we're pretty much in the dark.

    anyway, i'm in my office at hampstead and i'm fine, though gawd knows how/if i'm going to get home tonight.

    Seems like it's all going right off, with several explosions on the tube network and at least one bus. 20 dead reported so far.

    I'm alright and so is Paul Meme.

    Obviously it's best to assume everyone else is ok unless you hear otherwise - people will be contacting family members and stuff (or away from comuters/trying to get home), so may not be posting here

    Of course. I called my mum and dad, who are in London, and the poor things hadn't even heard anything had happened.

    i'm stuck in the department of health building - missed the explosions by 10 minutes as i walked into the aldgate area at 9:00 this morning.

    i'm feeling a bit shook up, worried about my mates as i can't get in touch with anyone. someone is saying here that theres also a bomb in leicester square but no-one can confirm. this is fucked.

    I heard about Leicester Square too. Bear in mind it might be a "controlled explosion" (if it happened at all). Another thing I heard is that a bomb disposal squad blew up a bag of washing at Swindon station!

    woebot's madonna post is from one hour before melchior's post starting this thread

    not sure if that helps clarify whether he's safe

    needless to say i'm sympathetic to concerns and fears of entire london-based dissensus community

    are you guys able to communicate using telephone? or are phone lines jammed?

    what the press says here (spain) its that the calls are restricted, and you can only call to the hospital, etc.

    actually woebot's madonna post is from 13 hours before -- so it's no help at all
