WE REMEMBER: Final Steel Beam To Be Lifted At 4 WTC Tower
NEW YORK (AP) - The steel construction of 4 World Trade Center is drawing to a close.
Developer Larry Silverstein, public officials and construction workers are scheduled to gather at the site Monday to see some workers sign the building's final steel beam before it's lifted 977 feet by a crane and placed on top of the building.
The tower is scheduled to open late next year. It is expected to be the first tower completed on the 16-acre World Trade Center site since the 9/11 attacks.
The building will primarily house commercial offices. A third of the office space will be set aside for the headquarters of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owes the trade center site.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Wind, humidity and rainfall combined precisely to create the massive killer tornado in Moore, Okla. And when they did, the awesome amount of energy released over that city dwarfed the power of the atomic bomb that leveled Hiroshima. Meteorologists contacted by The Associated Press used real time measurements to calculate the energy released during the storm's life span of almost an hour.>>
