WTC Working To Pump Out Water, Says It Suffered No Structural Damage To Towers
The operator of the World Trade Center site says that no structural damage was suffered at any of its World Trade Center towers and that the process of pumping out flood waters is already underway.
Silverstein Properties said in a statement that "the only major issues at present are water and restoration of electrical service."
According to Silverstein Properties, the process of pumping water out of towers 2, 3 and 4 "is well underway."
The statement says that no structural damage was suffered at any of the towers, including 4WTC, which Silverstein Properties says remains on schedule to be completed in 2013.
7WTC suffered no significant damage, according to Silverstein Properties, and is expected to be fully operational once Con Edison can restore power.
Silverstein Properties says that no harm was done to its major mechanical systems, which includes an electrical room located under the 2WTC construction site that supplies power to each of its towers.
The statement says that all cranes at the site are secured.
