Maps of the World Trade Center's plaza & underground mall.

I woke up that morning with someone shouting about a building collapse, I thought it was some old tenement that had collapsed due to the heavy storms the previous night. I turned on the tv, all channels dead except one, and there it was, one of the towers engulfed in smoke, it's twin lay in a smouldering ruin. Minutes later, it too fell. Stunned silence. Who did I know worked at wtc?
