Following the tornado that devastated Greensburg, the Web has been a hub where residents and those affected by the tornado have gone to share their reflections and to find information about loved ones.

On MySpace.com, a posting from a writer that goes by the name Clay, transcribes a first-hand account as told by the writer’s father.

“…then I saw Dennis Smith, the guy I used to ride to work at the LSH and he said I could stay at his house last night as his house was one of the few houses not totally destroyed in Greensburg…”

In another blog, by a writer who goes only by the name Joni, the blogger reflects:

"Every church in town, including the one my parents and my sisters' family attend, was either severely damaged or destroyed. The roof of the small hospital collapsed. My family lives a few miles north of town, and none of them were injured. Three family members worked in Greensburg, and will be dealing with the devastation left behind."

Earlier today, President George Bush declared a state of major disaster in southwestern Kansas. At least nine people have been reported killed.
