The BTV airport is closed and I hear no radio traffic involving the VTANG squadron of F-16s which is unusual...they are up almost every day.

I just called the local FBI to offer whatever services I could provide. They suggested giving blood to the local Red Cross. (Can't.....had hepatitis).

Those who can give blood might want to consider that...there are going to be tens of thousands of injured.

Here in Columbia, South Carolina, things are actually very normal-looking (emphasis on "-looking", this is a very pro-military town and the entire place is shaken to the foundations). Federal and state offices were closed. Fort Jackson is locked down hard. I assume that the other local military facilities (McEntire Air National Guard base, and Shaw AFB in nearby Sumter) are the same. It'll be interesting to hear what happens with the 20th FW over at Shaw; three or four F-16 squadrons, I think one is on overseas deployment right now.

Adding to your list, McCain Mall at North Little Rock and other major malls are closed. I think the talking points are "out of respect for NYC"...but heard from my friend in Orlando, and she said their Mall is closed using the same lingo.

No, things aren't calming down, we are, unfortuately, all in a state of disbelief and shock.

I just drove by Little Rock Air Force Base and they have M113s and HUMMVEES armed with Mk19s and .50 cal.s behind the main gate with battle dressed SP's at the gate.

Nothing special here, this is a federal military base at THREATCON DELTA.

In the OTHER WASHINGTON we are operating per usual with schools and banks, etc. However, most retailers are shutting down due to no activity. Not many people on the road. The Governor has told most federal bldgs. to remain open.

Ferries are only transporting foot traffic - no cars. Amtrak has cancelled travel. Larger downtown Seattle bldgs. closed or on high aleart. All bridges, tunnels, and dams being observed. Many Catholic masses being planned or in session now. Protestant churches open - people coming to pray.

NE Ohio: Military helicopters and one c-130 wide flight path around Perry Nuke plant, some times close as a mile at other times as far away as 15 or more miles (I am 20+miles away and can see it clearly from the upstairs of my home).

National Guard C-130's departed from their station near Warren Ohio about 10 or 10:30 ET this AM. Haven't seen them since.

I'm in the sticks but have a decent view of a good portion of the countryside/skies.

West Texas OIL up $6.

My first post today,

IMHO, we need to some one hard in the next 12 hours, THIS IS WAR and they hit civilians first.

We hit terrorist centers now and if we hit the wrong ones, we worry and wring our hands later.

I live in Tallahassee, FL. Just heard that "they" are checking all water towers for devices, chemicals, etc. One was next door to my parents house. SWAT was out because they found an "unidentified object". They exploded it, and it was obviously nothing, becasue my Mom had called me at work and told me this.

Minneapolis/St. Paul are pretty quiet. Airport is shut down, Mall of America closing/closed, and several of the taller buildings are closed in the two downtowns. Ventura is chattering from time to time, but that is normal.

Woodland Hills, California (Los Angeles suburb)

Streets eerily lacking in traffic. About half the restaurants closed, business down significantly in those remaining open. Major shopping malls closed. A lot of talk about the incident.

I wonder if all this activity is just a shade overdone. I can see the terrorists attacking, say, the Mall of America, but not the Westfield Shopping Town in Woodland Hills; there's just no symbolism there.

Fresno California, airport closed and streets around it as well, the shopping malls are even closed, as well as government offices. The one eerie thing I have noticed is the quietness. The silence around my neighborhood is very strange indeed.

In Kansas City, the Federal Building downtown was closed and access/traffic all around the building was restricted. A news conference was held and rumors of a smallpox release were denied. Also seciury was tightened around the water supply stations. Two of the largest malls in the area were closed down. There were stories of people being stranded at KCI, the major airport here and people were warned to stay away from it. I just heard from my sister who lives in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan that the bridge into Canada from Sault Saint Marie has been closed and she has heard that the big bridge from the lower part of Michigan has also been closed.

Downtown Orlando, FL

Pretty quiet. Courthouse and federal buildings shut down. Not many people out on the street. I think a lot of people went home. Disney parks are closed. No one allowed in, even back areas. My father works there and says they are searching vehicles leaving from "backstage" areas. I've heard lots of blood donations are going on too.

So many people lined up to donate blood in Phoenix that many had to be sent home. The blood facilities are overwhelmed with donations.

Gov. Jane Hull was broadcast saying that the West is not threatened. However, government workers can go home if they wish. The highway over the Hoover Dam is closed. The Palo Verde nuclear power station is locked down. The airport (Sky Harbor) is a ghost town. Airplanes are not allowed next to the terminal. Media are kept away.

My email is slow today but everywhere people are crying for the victims. Pearl Harbor was a military installation. These people were defenseless. This is war.

Richmond, Virginia - Word has gone out that there is a nationwide call for gathering to pray between 8:00 and 8:30 tonight. Malls closed. MCV hospital helipad prepared to receive injuries from the Pentagon incident if necessary. I was on my way to give blood, but heard on the radio that all of the donation centers are swamped. Malls will be setting up tomorrow through Friday for special blood drives. Saw city police staking out the CSX railroad yards. Carriers from Norfolk/Hampton Roads sent adjacent to DC and NY to secure the areas. Naval base areas buttoned up tight. Got a call this morning from my younger brother, who lives in Brooklyn and works in the West Village in NYC. He said they watched the whole thing from their 8th floor office windows about 30 blocks away. Said that people were already very panicky in the streets. Shortly after I hung up with him, the buildings collapsed.

Suburbia is fairly normal. Lack of a single plane is strange.
I saw a CalTrans truck driving in a wash, and firetrucks out of their stations. At least two major buildings in Downtown were evacuated.

Rural Missouri town -- no panic -- everyone going about their business. Our boss did have all employees go fill their gas tanks, and recommended getting groceries. My family and I are still full up of Y2K stuff. We've used a little, but not much. I'm glad we're not in a city now.

I just stepped outside. How unusual no contrails criss-crossing an almost clear azure blue sky.
I live on a dirt road that has maybe one car per hour go by -- it is almost too quiet today.

I went into my "Y2K" mode, filled the tank and bought as many groceries and bottled water as I could afford around noon. Had to go back into town at 3PM -- the gas stations had a car at every pump. I'm sure up by the interstate there are long lines.

It's days like these I am glad I am removed from civilization ... other than my needed lifeline to FR. Take care my friend.

Montgomery County, Maryland (most important DC area suburb, located on north/northwest border of the Nation's Capital):

Local police have issued "community alerts" and increased patrols.

Local schools closed 1 1/2 hours early (for no apparent good reason).

All federal government agencies closed around noon today.

Maryland state government neglecting West Nile Virus epidemic, which has spread to local citizens now.

Liberals, gun control freaks and other gun-haters wringing their hands while waiting for government (protection?) help.

Traffic is unusually light.

I'm headed out to run a few errands and do some shopping now...

People are SCARED. My MIL was to have furniture delivered today. The furniture store had a recording on their answering machine stating that 75% of their employees had stayed home due to the events of today. This is in Phoenix. Husband reports there is very little traffic on the streets. A business trip scheduled for me by my home office was scuttled.

This was a huge psychological blow to the American public.

Canadian Border (New Brunswick, Edmondston) & Maine

Customs are checking trunks and opening doors at border crossing. Traffic is flowing slowly but it is flowing. In fact, no huge back up on the bridge.

People are stunned right now and have not moved out of that stage yet. Myself included.

I am a pediatrician that works in strategic consulting for the pharmaceutical industry. I work in midtown New York. After the attack I went to volunteer my services at St. Clare's Hospital on 9th Ave and 51st Street. Two other pediatricians came over here also--one pediatric cardiologist from Holland who was here for a meeting and a developmental pediatrician from Syracuse, NY. We are awaiting patients at this time.

So far, only a few patients from the WTC have arrived: a fireman that was treated and released (his buddy disappeared beneatha collapsed building) and a guy who walked down from the 84th floor and had a heart attack.

A NY cop that i spoke to downstairs said that they had set up a triage area downtown to deal with patients outside of the WTC when the building collapsed on them.

Also, they were sending in groups of cops and firemen in at ten at a time before the collapse--many of the rescue workers were evidently lost.

I will post more as soon as I know more and can.

Peoria, Illinois.

Federal and county courthouses are bristling with armed security guards. Caterpillar has its world HQ next to the county courthouse, and it is also bristling with armed security. During the Cold war, Peoria was believed to be #4 on the list of targets for the Soviets to hit, after Omaha (HQ of Strategic Air Command), Washington and New York, due to the presence of Caterpillar's world HQ and its two largest factories. We produce all the Caterpillar diesels that power tanks, trucks and other vehicles.

Newport, Maine (20 minutes south of Bangor), all looks calm in the streets. Gov. King evacuated all state offices, bases are closed from incoming traffic, local school had a few parents remove their kids, many parents called the school, KMart stopped selling firearms, though Walmart is still selling them. That's all so far...
