I've been away from the computer and out of touch with the news. I only just learned about last night's enormous tornado in Greensburg in southern Kansas about 270 miles from me. My thoughts and prayers go out to the people in the town and to their families and friends.
The Wichita Eagle has information for those who would like to help and those who are looking for loved ones. Thoughts From Kansas has maps and a discussion of how tornados form.
Here is an updated link for those wishing to provide donations and other help to the good folks of Greensburg, Kansas.
