World wide "lock-down" of major parts of major cities. The Malaysian government has detained without trial several Islamic extremists, checkpoints were set up outside the Citibank Tower and Asian-Pacific Financial Tower in Hong Kong, the CN Tower in Toronto was shut, Downing Street was evacuated because a suspect package had been found inside No 10. (The alert was called off within minutes.) Etc, etc, etc.

New York City Mayor's Emergency Management Office, designed to be the emergency command center and handle numerous scenarios (including acts of terrorism in NYC), was in World Trade Center 7. It was established in 1998. This office is completely gone now. Terrible irony, with many lessons to be learned.

Nix - I don't know this for certain, but a friend is a Red Cross spokesperson and I BELIEVE she said that everyone from OEM made it out safely. The office, naturally, was destroyed.
