Suspicious vehicle prompts evacuations

The sirens you're hearing in East Boston this morning are vehicles racing toward the edge of Logan Airport, as an abandoned vehicle with a suspicious device inside was spotted on or just outside a rent-a-car company. Some reports say that some residents have been evacuated. There's a live video feed here on Fox News.

Update: No explosive devices were found in the abandoned vehicle. Residents have been allowed to return to their homes.

Update II (Aug. 17): Car belonged to college student.

The Herald has reported that the car was left behind by a college student (hence all the worthless crap in the trunk.) Here's the link

The car has been there since Aug 6th, so I would say this might be considered a bit of an overreaction, but better safe than sorry.

Or better to not have any further encroachment of Massport into the surrounding n'hoods as who wants their Nanna stuck in a bus while F Troop's robot pulls dirty laundry out of a trunk.
