Excerpt: I was in the concourse level when the first plane struck. In my store all I heard was this 'whush' sound, a couple of clanks, and then this mass of people running from right to left in such a panic. I ran out of my store, heard people yelling 'BOMB!' and immediately ran back in my store, told everyone to get out, and ran myself.
