I can't get through to any of the news sites & wire services about the horror story at the WTC - does anyone have news? Is Helen OK?

One of the towers has collapsed. The Pentagon has also been attacked, or so I hear. I've been able to get news from http://eltiempo.terra.com.co but even they've been giving me connection refused lately. (I just got through again from my preview) We've been watching on TV. It should be localized enough that Helen hasn't been in the line of fire.

Just a few minutes ago

#41265 - 09/11/01 09:58 AM Re: Where Helen works
She works at the EPA. Lemme check see can I find out where that is in NYC
#41266 - 09/11/01 10:08 AM Re: Where Helen works Post unwidened
It's about a half mile as the crow flies.
1 world trade center
Pardon wide post
Helen is at 1. WTC was at 2

Helen works at the Environmental Protection Agency but I don't know where the offices are. Another (female, but mey memory has really gone with this lot) boarder works in the EPA as well, but I don't know if that is also in NY.
This is all, all too horrific and too much like the Jack Ryan blockbuster Executive Orders where the terrorists dive an aeroplane into the Capitol during the presidential investiture.

Helen showed me where she works, we walked to the World Trade Center and went up it together at New Year.
She works near City Hall it took us ten to fifteen minutes to walk there, so I hope that she will be away from the worst of it. I just hope she'll let us know when she gets home.

i am surprised it was so easy to crash plane into Pentagon. During WWII, there were Air Force planes always on the alert, and radar to tell them when any plane was approaching the Capitol or Pentagon.

Yes, I was amazed at that. Doesn't seem to bode well for the principle of interception at all if the nerve centre can be crippled so easily.
(Rod, our other EPAer is Hyla on the West Coast, and thank goodness that part is not yet under obvious threat, though rumours abound about that other plane under fighter threat)
