In this two-part weekend edition: On September 11th, Los Angeles Battalion Chief Robert Willcox was the safety officer for the department's elite Urban Search and Rescue team.  By day's end, FEMA ordered the group to Ground Zero where they worked 11-days amid the smoke, rubble and remains.  The 35-year fire veteran says the experience left a lasting impact on his life, and his colleagues. Then: All four passenger planes that crashed September 11th were bound for California - three en route to Los Angeles. In the 20 years since, victim's families have cut their own path through grief - a journey they say requires resilience, inner strength and courage.  Support the show: https://support.laist.com/laistnav

One person is dead, one injured and residents of more than 1200 mostly Papatoetoe homes - 60 of which are now uninhabitable - have been left picking up the pieces after an ordinary Saturday morning turned to terror when a tornado ripped through South Auckland.It was just before 8.30am when the tornado struck, in a matter of seconds tearing off roofs and garage doors, uprooting trees, smashing windows, toppling a truck and power poles - some on to cars - and leaving stunned residents cowering and praying in their homes from Manurewa to Papatoetoe.They estimated more than 1200 homes had been affected by the tornado, with the majority without power.An Auckland Emergency Management spokeswoman said a family of eight and a family of three were provided with accommodation last night.She said Auckland Emergency Management were holding a debriefing and planning session this morning and would provide an update about 9.30am.Fire and Emergency and Urban Search and Rescue teams had so far assessed 240 as being impacted by the tornado, 60 of which were uninhabitable.Assessments would continue today, so the number of tornado-damaged homes could increase, Auckland Emergency Management controller Parul Sood said last night.At a Ports of Auckland yard on Wiri Station Rd, dozens of stacked shipping containers collapsed as the powerful funnel of spinning air crossed Wiri, with at least one container weighing 30 tonnes tossed into the air.A contractor not employed directly for the Auckland Council-owned port company was killed and a truck driver on site injured but it's understood the fallen shipping containers may not be directly responsible for the death.The injured truck driver was taken to Middlemore Hospital with moderate injuries, a St John spokeswoman said.Auckland mayor Phil Goff said he'd been told someone at the yard died after the force of the wind threw them some distance in the air and they then struck a solid object."I want to be careful about that [cause of death]. I've had conversations about it … I've talked to Ports of Auckland, they said the force of the wind was so strong that 30-tonne containers were being picked up and blown about in the air."A person at the yard described the scene as "carnage", with distraught workers watching as three ambulances, a specialist response team and multiple police officers rushed to help, with someone being "worked on" in the back of an ambulance.As well as toppled containers, including the 30-tonne one lifted by the wind, signs from the neighbouring motorway were also blown onto the site, Ports of Auckland spokesman Matt Ball said."We're very shocked by what is a horrendous freak event and our thoughts are with the family and friends of the people who've been affected."This will be difficult for our staff. They're not just affected by what's happened at work, many of them also live in the area."Papatoetoe and Manurewa residents described terrifying scenes as the tornado cut a swathe of destruction across parts of both suburbs, sparking 100 calls to Fire and Emergency New Zealand.More than 20 crews were sent to help.Because the tornado, although destructive, was localised and brief it didn't cross paths with any wind gauges, so wind speeds weren't known, MetService forecaster Gerard Bellam said.The rain gauge at Auckland Airport in Mangere recorded 25mm in the hour to 9am yesterday, with the downpours "a good indication of the amount of energy that was around", Bellam said.Many residents were still asleep in bed or only just awake when the noise of the tornado alerted them to the approaching danger."The noise was horrendous … it sounded like a plane was landing on our house," said Annelise Greenfield, who huddled in the hallway with her husband and three kids, hugging and praying, as the tornado tore its way up Grande Vue Rd in Papatoetoe."My 10-year-old thought she was going to die."Emerging outside they found their letterbox at the front door, their shed's roof...

The Oklahoma City bombing was a domestic terrorist truck bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, United States, on April 19, 1995. Perpetrated by American terrorists Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, the bombing happened at 9:02 am and killed at least 168 people, including many children, injured more than 680 others, and destroyed more than one third of the building, which had to be demolished. The blast destroyed or damaged 324 other buildings within a 16-block radius, shattered glass in 258 nearby buildings, and destroyed or burned 86 cars, causing an estimated $652 million worth of damage. Local, state, federal, and worldwide agencies engaged in extensive rescue efforts in the wake of the bombing. They and the city received substantial donations from across the country. The Federal Emergency Management Agency  activated 11 of its Urban Search and Rescue Task Forces, consisting of 665 rescue workers who assisted in rescue and recovery operations. Until the September 11 attacks in 2001, the Oklahoma City bombing was the deadliest terrorist attack in the history of the United States.

Turns out Republicans who complained about voter fraud in last year's election were right … but it was one of their own behind it. Democrats call for a do-over after a GOP operative and former state lawmaker was charged with financing a sham candidate in Senate District 37 to siphon votes away from the Democrat. Also, on today’s Sunrise: — The House Public Integrity and Elections Committee takes up a bill that’s being sold as a fraud-prevention measure but doesn't do a thing about sham candidates. All it does is make it harder to vote by mail, the method often preferred by Democrats. — Gov. Ron DeSantis says more than 70% of Florida seniors have now been vaccinated for COVID-19, so he's lowering the age to get a shot. As of today, anyone 50 and over can sign up. — Florida reached another milestone in the COVID-19 crisis over the weekend as the number of cases passed the 2 million mark, one of every 10 Floridians. — House and Senate leaders agreed on a bill to provide businesses and health care entities with protection from COVID-19 liability lawsuits, and the bill could be on its way to the Governor by the end of the week. But there's another group asking for legal protection for an entirely different reason: Urban Search and Rescue Structures Specialists who volunteer to enter collapsed or partially collapsed buildings first to help clear a path to help first responders get to victims. — The problem is liability lawsuits; Allen Douglas, head of the Florida Engineering Society, says these volunteer engineers deserve the same sort of protection enjoyed by good Samaritans. — And finally, two Florida Couples who ran afoul of the law. One is accused of letting students smoke weed at their home; the other pair was caught with lamb and seafood stuffed in their pants at Costco.

Outside of response the team also provides assistance with response capacity building efforts benefiting citizens of the United states and the global community. Having deployed numerous times as one of the 28 FEMA teams and 2 partner OFDA teams, Fairfax County Urban Search and Rescue has become one of a very small number of highly qualified and experienced USAR responders.
