World Trade Center is bombed

“At 12:18 p.m., a terrorist bomb explodes in a parking garage of the World Trade Center in New York City, leaving a massive, multi-story crater and causing the collapse of several steel-reinforced concrete floors in the vicinity of the blast. Although the terrorist bomb failed to critically damage the main structure of the skyscrapers, six people were killed and more than 1,000 were injured. The World Trade Center itself suffered more than $500 million in damage. After the attack, authorities evacuated 50,000 people from the buildings, hundreds of whom were suffering from smoke inhalation. The evacuation lasted the whole afternoon.”

Not exactly around Town, but a very amazing story to keep track of. “NORTH BROOKFIELD, N.Y. — A church in North Brookfield, formerly known as Saint Mary’s, was set for demolition. But a local woman decided to save the chapel and move it down the road. “
