The sirens are constant right now. It's very, very scary.
At first the Underground explosion was being blamed on a power surge, but then a bus blew up in Tavistock Place and the National Grid said their system was running normally. So there were bombs. This was a concerted attack. I feel like I did on 11 September. Shaky, horribly scared, and absolutely powerless.
i'm so glad you to see you here now!
i just turned on the television.
stay inside - stay safe - keep us posted if you can...
I can't make any phone calls right now, which is pretty unsurprising, so am clinging to the internet. Possibly this is not the best idea since I keep refreshing the BBC site and seeing more freaking bombs, and now they're saying two Underground trains collided at King's Cross.
This is a nightmare.
I realize that being concerned with the sensibilities of your Livejournal acquaintances has little right to be anything but the last thing on your mind right now - however, I and everyone else appreciates you posting and letting us know you're alright. Thank you!
Well, a lot of my LJ friends are RL friends too, and RL friends without LJs read my journal so it's actually a pretty efficient way of letting everyone know we're safe. I finally managed to dial out so I got in touch with my parents. Thanks for thinking of us.
holy shit! I'm very glad to know you're not dead. I didn't even know there WAS an explosion in the Underground. I'll hate american media later, more on the holyshit, i'm glad you're not dead side of things.
There were six explosions on the underground and at least two on buses, one in Russell Square and Tavistock Place, both very crowded places in central London.
We're glad to hear you are both okay.
I'm fine. Staying inside for now, although I may need to go out later.
I don't know how Marco is going to get home. All bus & Tube services are suspended and the streets are a mess. He may have to walk.
*relieved* Thanks for letting us know you're okay.
Thanks for being concerned. I'm still scared, working on checking on everybody.
oh god.. so glad to hear you're okay. my parents are on their way home from spain travelling through london today. bit worried.
Eek, I hope they only have to stop briefly through Heathrow and won't need to go into central London. I don't think there are any problems at the airport.
Glad you are both ok.
Someone created london_070705
for updates, info and checking up on london ljers.
Awesome, thank you for the link. I put my name on the roll call post.
The constant sirens are quite nerve-wracking.
God, R, this is so fucking scary. *hugs back*
Very glad to hear you're safe, thanks for posting. Hope Marco doesn't have too much trouble getting home tonight.
It's likely that he'll have to walk, once he's allowed to leave the building. At least we don't live too terribly far from the West End.
I'm glad you're both ok - this is awful.
It is. Glad to hear you're at home too.
Incredibly relieved, and glad you posted. I hope Marco gets back ok. My stupid attempt at humor: I'd be very upset if potential crash space went away, should I ever convince seismic
that she needs a passport and travel in her diet.
He's still not being allowed to leave work. I don't think anyone is being allowed into the building either, so even if I made the trek down there on foot to meet him, I wouldn't be able to get in.
Really glad to hear you're both safe. Girl at work got trapped underground in a smoke-filled train for half an hour, and my boss lives more or less on top of where the Tavistock bus exploded (luckily he was indoors when it happened, but is now confined to his house as the Police have cordoned off the area). Everything feels quite strange at the moment.
You, too! Are you still at work?
It's all very surreal now that the sirens have mostly died away. No buses roaring past, no trains, not even lorries. Some motorcycles and cars, though.
