Old Local Reports
Recent Update (Sept 18th):
I've heard firsthand reports from friends of the disaster and the
panic that ensued. From the number of companies reporting in that
they have many or all employees safe, it seems that the earliest fears
of 10,000 to 30,000 dead will, hopefully, not materialize. That being said,
there are still over 5,000 people missing. Most families have already
been able to locate their loved ones that made it out and are safe
or hospitalized. Some people are still being confirmed safe by their
companies, so if you are looking for friends or coworkers and have not
been in touch with their family, they may still be located. Unfortunately,
noone has been found alive at the disaster site since Wednesday, so
hope is fast slipping away. There is still hope, and you should
not give up. In earthquakes, people have been found up to 2 weeks
afterward trapped in air pockets, so there is a chance. Best wishes
to all of us in finding those we care about...
Older Report (Sept 12th): We've heard first and second
hand reports of people making it out of Tower 1 from as high as the
100th floor. We've also heard reports of survivors being found within
the rubble. The evacuation also, apparently, began quite soon
after the initial plane hit from all of the Trade Center. Several
workers on scene have also said that it looks much like earthquake
wreckage and the possibility exists of finding more survivors
over the next week or so. So, there
is still hope of finding your missing friends and realtives. Please
don't give up hope!
