Washington DC, Pentagon Attacked...
Report from Northern Virginia Furs group moderator... on the DC situation
First, and foremost, there are currently no reports of local furs who are hurt or injured, however I have already heard that families of some furs have been struck with this tragety.
To them, I speak for many that extend our extreme condolences.
The Pentagon was struck and the outer ring of 5 rings of the building was hit by one large aircraft. That part of the building collapsed. It is only one part of the Pentagon near where the helicopters land, between corridors 3 and 5, in the "D" ring area. Many were out of a nearby part of the Pentagon due to it being under renovation. That area, however, was occupied. Many are presumed dead and many more injuried. I have been in that part of the Pentagon, but no furs that I know should have been there for any reason. I can tell you, the pictures I have seen are not able to describe the amount of damage actually done to the Pentagon.
The DC area has been declared under a state of emergency. The US government is closed. The national emergency radio net has been activated, and military helicopters are flying over my head on a regular basis. Maryland, Viginia, and DC are all under declared states of emergency. The DC Army National Guard has been activated. Locally, people have been asked to go home, and stay home.
Reports that the capitol building, or the state department building, or the washington monument were also bombed are *FALSE.*
Local furs are involved in the emergency and helping out. If you know any furs in DC who needs help or is stranded, they can contact me at (firstname.lastname@example.org) or any of the other local furs and we will help them.
Also, there is a shortage of *all* blood products. Please contact the red cross and donate locally if you can.
Lastly, unless you know something to be fact... don't spread rumors.
God Bless you all,
