The next few days in Boston are “not going to be easy, simple, or regular,” Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick said in a press conference Monday night.

The area around the finish line of the Boston Marathon is a crime scene after two explosions killed three people and injured more than 100, several critically.

Bostonians can expect random checks of backpacks and other parcels, especially when using public transportation, Patrick said.

“It is for the public’s safety,” he said.

The governor urged everyone in the area to “be in a state of heightened vigilance,” and report anything suspicious.

“We’re gonna get through this,” he said.

The FBI will take the lead in the “potential terrorism investigation” with help from state and local authorities.

He urged anyone with information to call 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324).

“This cowardly act will not be taken in stride,” Boston police commissioner Ed Davis said. “We will turn every rock over to find the people who are responsible for this.”

Davis reiterated that there is no suspect being held or questioned, though. “There are people that we are talking to.”

“Tomorrow will not be business as usual in Boston,” he said, explaining the Boston Police Department is on emergency deployment, working 12-hour shifts. “There will be a significant police presence throughout the city.”
