Ron Burger - Public Health Advisor at the National Center for Environmental Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention : "Feeling the heat, seeing the molten steel, the layers upon layers of ash, like lava, it reminded me of Mt. St. Helen's and the thousands who fled that disaster."
Alison Geyh - Assistant Scientist with John Hopkins Department of Enviromental Health Sciences : "Fires are still actively burning and the smoke is very intense, in some pockets now being uncovered, they are finding molten steel."
