    I can see it out my bosses office window! Looks like both towers were hit near the top floors. There's fire and tons of smoke....

    They are saying two commercial American Airlines planes were highjacked and forced to crash into the tower. One was a large jet (747?) they say the other was a small commuter plane...

    [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif[/img] I am far away in VA but this is so frightening. AHC - how are you? It must be terrifying there in NYC.

    They (news) say the towers are leaning considerably. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif[/img] The jet I saw on TV hit the building at extreme high speed. And the fire...

    Presendent (in FL) is getting ready to talk to public. Lincon tunnel and more are now closed. The official word is that this was NOT a bizarre accident. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    Please close your eyes for a few seconds.
    And pray - even if you never have before - for the people, their families, & the emergency workers.

    thanks

    All our NYC friends - slugger, MAZ, Trooper and the many many more- I hope they are all OK.

    That was a US Military plane enforcing the no-fly zone.

    News just came on to say there MAY MAY have been an explosion at the pentagon. News correspondant there is reporting. He says it felt like a small blast and now people being herded out.

    My heart and prayers go out to every emergency service person in NY today. Being a 911 dispatcher/firefighter/MRT here in CT, I can just imagine the horrers and pain they are dealing with today.
