I just saw a report of a tornado in Kearney, Nebraska... on the Platte River where Sandhill Cranes gather in spring and fall migrations--and the site of Richard Powers', The Echo Maker.
Because I will never forget the tornado that destroyed the neighborhood where I lived, friends who lost parents, the devastation that drops from the sky... for the hundreds of unexpected visitors to this site because of this post... I assure you, the connection was more than a book. My heart goes out to those caught in the wake and to all of you concerned for the safety of relatives and friends .
