Good Morning, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
Three days after the Attack on America, rescue workers in New York are still digging through steel and dry wall, looking for any signs of life outside what used to be the twin towers.
And last night, heavy rains and storms at the disaster scene added insult to injury--
Meanwhile, the investigation continues for terrorists U-S officials say could STILL be at large.
Jennifer Jones joins us now the latest on the investigation, and what President Bush will see when he visits New York today.

For investigators, Pieces of the puzzle are rapidly falling into place. In Pennsylvania the first flight data recorder has been recovered. And-- through airport surveillance video, receipts and passenger manifests, the FBI now believes it has identified all the hijackers.

SOT/Attorney General John Ashcroft

"UNLESS CONTRADICTED BY EVIDENCE WHICH WE WOULDN'T ANTICIPATE, TWO PLANES HAD FIVE HIJACKERS AND TWO OTHER PLANES HAD FOUR HIJACKERS EACH."
All this evidence points to known terrorist Osama Bin Laden, who has denied any involvement. In an unprecedented bipartisan gesture, Congress is set to authorize 40-billion dollars to help the victims and track down the culprits.

SOT: Colin Powell/Sec. of State: WE WILL GO AFTER THAT GROUP, THAT

NETWORK AND THOSE WHO HAVE HARBORED, SUPPORTED AND AIDED THAT NETWORK TO RIP THE NETWORK UP.
On a day marked as a National Day of remembrance, President Bush will be in New York to offer his support and tour ground zero. With an army of recovery crews hard at work and mountains of debris still in place, there will be a lot for him to see. ))
