# 1 September 11: The New Pearl Harbor
Extremely high temperatures were evident before and during the destruction of the World Trade Center Twin Towers and at Ground Zero. Seven minutes before the destruction of the South Tower, a flow of molten metal appeared, accompanied by several smaller flows, as documented by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The material’s glowing color showed that its temperature was close to “white hot” at the very beginning of the flow and “yellow-orange” further down. Iron-rich spheres in the WTC dust are additional proof of temperatures above the melting point of iron. Pyroclastic-like, rapidly expanding dust clouds after the destruction of the Towers can also be explained only by the expansion of hot gases.

FEMA spokesman Tom Kenney: "We're currently one of the first teams that was deployed to support the city of New York for this disaster. We arrived on late Monday night [September 10], and went into action on Tuesday morning. And not until today did we get a full opportunity to work the entire site."
