NU Online News Service, Sept. 11, 12:15 p.m. — The world headquarters of the American Express Company, New York, are in the World Financial Center complex, which was not hit this morning by suicide plane attacks, a company spokesman said.

American Express also has had some employees at World Trade Center Building 7, another building not hit by the suicide plane attacks.

American Express has about 4,000 employees at the World Trade Center/World Financial Center complex.

The company evacuated all offices in the complex after the first plane hit and closed all New York City offices for the day.

“As far as we know, everybody was evacuated,” an American Express spokesman said. “We’re trying to find everyone and have them accounted for.”

When the company evacuated the headquarters offices around 10 a.m., those offices did not appear to be damaged, a spokeswoman said.
