NEWS SOUGHT OF ISLANDERS ON MAINLAND

Sept. 12, 2001 – Thousands of Virgin Islanders live and work in New York City and Washington, D.C. With communications breakdowns Tuesday, little information was available locally about family and friends on the mainland.
Naturally, people throughout the territory and those elsewhere with strong ties to the Virgin Islands are anxious to obtain information about loved ones and associates, and to learn of their experiences and feelings with regard to Tuesday's terrorist attacks on the mainland.
The Source asks readers to e-mail any such information to [email protected] so that we can keep our virtual community as enlightened as possible.

I am trying to contact my friends George, Christine, Mathew and Andrew Aprile, who live just blocks from the World Trade Center at 75 Murray Street. I have been unable to reach them via either e-mail or telephone and am very concerned about their whereabouts. Especially disconcerting was watching the news and seeing the Murray Street sign lying on the ground amid debris. If anyone can be of any help w/any information I would be most grateful. Thank you.
