I was watching the early morning news broadcast on WWL-TV here in New Orleans. Towards the end of the program, they mentioned that a small plane and had hit the WTC but they downplayed it. As soon as the broadcast ended, CBS news broke in with live video of the WTC on fire. I stood in front the TV in awe…then just a few minutes later I saw what looked like a large plane followed by an explosion, I was shocked. I left for school a few minutes later. I listened to the radio on the way there and frequently throughout the school day. It was truly a shocking event.
