2817 Meaning of “Ground Zero”

Today, let me introduce you the 911. Thirteen years ago, terrorists group named Al Quida attacked the United States. It is one of the largest attacks against the United States, about 3,000 people were killed in the attack. We call this affair 911 because this attack happened on September 11.

Maybe you know the site of 911 has been called “Ground Zero” since that time. By the way, do you know what about the meaning of “Ground Zero”? I’m learned that only the site of 911 came to be called like that. I checked what this phrase means.

I learned that the center of attacks in the war time or the like is called Ground Zero, such as the WT in NY City or Hiroshima or the Fukushima Nuclear Plants. And it is use for the disaster area like a quake or infectious diseases.

Sadly, many places are called “Ground Zero”. I hope that there will be no place called like that from now on.
