Each Tower Disappeared into a Volcano-like Cloud of Dust

The dense dust clouds that replaced the towers resembled pyroclastic flows studied by vulcanologists.

  • The dust clouds rapidly expanded to many times each tower's volume.
  • The dust clouds advanced down streets around 30 mph.
  • The clouds were dense enough to pick up and carry people.

New York Daily News photographer David Handschuh recalled:

I got down to the end of the block and turned the corner when a wave-- a hot, solid, black wave of heat threw me down the block. It literally picked me up off my feet and I wound up about a block away.
