Emergency officials in Chicago say they're not aware of any threats to the city after deadly explosions in Boston.

The Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications issued the statement on Monday afternoon. Earlier Monday two bombs exploded near the crowded finish line of the Boston Marathon. A third blast rocked the John F. Kennedy Library a few miles away. Two people were killed and more than 50 others were injured.

Chicago emergency officials say they're communicating with law enforcement partners locally and throughout the country. They say they're "not aware of any additional threats."
