PHOENIX -

As the horror of what happened in Boston Monday unfolded, police, the FBI, even the FAA took precautions.

All flights into and leaving Boston's Logan Airport were halted, and it had a direct effect on us here in Phoenix.

The flight restriction was temporary and lasted less than an hour. It came at the request of law enforcement. Flights at Phoenix Sky Harbor were not canceled, but news of the restriction in Boston was enough to alarm people flying there.

Before checking in, Marie Goguen got a call from her daughter in Boston, asking her to stay here in the valley.

"We are going to take our chances, we're praying to God everything is ok. I just want to get home," says Marie Goguen, from Kingston, New Hampshire. "She said everybody -- people are just going crazy everybody is just frightening in Boston. It's just total chaos."

Monday night, Goguen took a JetBlue flight to Logan International Airport, one of four flights that fly directly there from Sky Harbor daily.

"Obviously we're a little nervous but hopefully things have been checked out at the airport well enough where everybody is safe," says Steve Labelle, of southern New Hampshire.

Passengers are keeping a close eye on their flight status and the latest news on the bombings, devastated by what happened so close to home -- fully willing to deal with increased security measures at home.

"I was just praying that we would be able to get home tonight, that's about it, hope for the best and I hope there's no more bombs, no more surprises. That's the way it goes, you think everything is all clear, cleaned up -- another bomb goes off," says Goguen.

A spokesperson for Sky Harbor tells us both JetBlue and US Airways fly directly to Boston. None of the flights were delayed or canceled.

    LL Cool J stays true to hip hop roots

    Friday, August 1 2014 10:38 PM EDT2014-08-02 02:38:22 GMT
    EXCLUSIVE -- LL Cool J grew and evolved from a hip hop artist out of Hollis, Queens, to a Hollywood TV and movie star. But he always stayed true to hip hop culture. We'd see him backstage at concerts just hanging out with us, so when I heard he was back in New York for the summer I had to find out why. I tracked him down to a Midtown Manhattan recording studio for this exclusive interview.
