Anatomy of a tornado

This wonderful narrative of a town's visit by a monster tornado is actually a series of narrative stories, interwoven to tell the larger tale of a tornado in north central Illinois. It was written by Julia Keller of the Chicago Tribune and won a Pulitzer for best feature writing in 2005.

I encourage you to read the whole three-part series reprinted on the Pulitzer web site.
