Local News

Today marks 16 years since the September 11th terrorist attacks, and folks in our area are gathering together to remember the ones who lost their lives in that tragedy..

Vice President Mike Pence and U.S. Secretary of the Interior, Ryan Zinke will deliver remarks at the 16th annual observance. The ceremony will start at 9:30 a.m. That time was chosen to commemorate the time period in which the passengers and crew took action to fight back against the terrorists who hijacked the plane, ultimately preventing an attack on the nation’s Capitol.

At 10:03 a.m., the moment the plane crashed, the names of the passengers and crew members will be read and bells will ring in their memory.

WTAJ will have special coverage of the ceremony.
