Just got back from a walk through town. Main Street in Northampton is roped off near Starbucks. Lots of police and firemen around -- rumor is that there's a bomb scare. I saw a large orange suitcase at the center of the roped off area.
Update: Kristen saw it too
Further Update: The Gazette reports
A portion of Main Street was closed for more than two hours after a shopkeeper found an abandoned suitcase in front of a store.
Later, a bomb squad determined it contained only papers and books.
The decision to bring in the bomb squad was largely made because the business owner was very concerned that the suitcase was left right in front of the store and looked suspicious, Duggan said.
He said that calling the bomb squad is "a little bit out of the ordinary" but that "we're obviously in a different world now" where people have heightened sense of concern.
