At what age was your earliest memory of a disaster? (i.e. Oklahoma City bombing or 9/11)

I was 9 when the OKC bombing happened.
My cousin lived there at the time so I watched my family in a panic waiting to hear if she was alright.

I was 11 years old getting ready for school on 9/11, my mom came in shocked & pale, we sat & watched the 2nd plane hit live. Matt Lauer & Katie Couric did an amazing job of staying as calm as possible, they really helped my mom stay calm for me.

Oklahoma City bombing was it. I was home sick from school that day. My dad stayed home with me. We watched tv all day.

The challenger. I remember watching it in school. Highly traumatizing.

I didn't understand the severity of what was going on, but I remember seeing the funeral of JFK on our black and white TV.
