7 World Trade Center Collapses

7 World Trade Center Before Collapse

7 World Trade Center has collapsed due to damage sustained by the fall of the Twin Towers. The Building was evacuated after the fall of the first Tower. The building was severely damaged and caught fire during the fall of the second tower. The building contained New York’s emergency operations center, operated by the NYC Office of Emergency Management, originally intended to respond to disasters such as the attacks on the Twin Towers. Due to the emergency personnel having more than enough time to evacuate the building since the collapse of the North Tower, there are no injuries or deaths as a result of the collapse.

Bin Laden’s terror network bombed the World Trade Center in 1998.

White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain said that firefighters are working on the fire at the Pentagon, and that the Government there is still functioning at full capacity.
