CNN arrives in Kansas, survives tornado and prairie fire, and gets out

March 31st, 2006

A CNN crew was apparently in Kansas briefly this week. They seemed surprised to be hit by tornadoes, and then by a 5,000-acre prairie fire.

I started smelling smoke yesterday evening, went outside to investigate. I didn’t see or hear any fire. I figured some grassland must be burning again, and checked on it every couple of hours.

Turns out it was a good 30 miles away.

The funny thing is that CNN doesn’t seem to have ever filed a report from Kansas about this; they just posted a blog story.
