On this day in 1933, the 32nd United States President, Franklin D.
Roosevelt
(center) was sworn in and gave his inauguration speech
during the worst crisis America had faced since the Civil War. By 
early 1933, the U.S. economy had sunk to its lowest point in the
period known
at the Great Depression. In Roosevelt’s speech he
said "We have
nothing to fear, but fear itself."

At 12:18 p.m. et, a terrorist bomb exploded in a parking garage of the World
Trade Center
in New York City, leaving a crater 60 feet wide and causing the collapse of several steel-reinforced concrete floors in the vicinity of the blast. Although the terrorist bomb failed to critically damage the main structure of
the skyscrapers, six people were killed, more than 1,000 were injured and
the World Trade Center itself suffered more than $500 million in damage. 

After the attack, authorities evacuated 50,000 people from the buildings,
hundreds of whom were suffering from smoke inhalation. The evacuation
lasted the whole afternoon.

City authorities and the Federal Bureau of Investigation undertook a massive manhunt for suspects, and within days several radical Islamic fundamentalists
were arrested.
