<strong>Oklahoma City - terrorism comes home.</strong>


Hard to imagine it was 17 years ago this day, but within minutes of the bombing of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City, the country stopped and watched as the story slowly unfolded and became more grim and horrifying with each fresh report.

And there was other news happening. But somehow it just didn't seem so important as the day went on.

Here are news reports just shortly after the bombing was reported, as casualties rose over the next few hours and on-the-spot coverage of the event as it was happening via CBS Radio for April 19, 1995.
