They put down new tile and right away it started to crack. Big fault lines in the hallways, people walking and tripping as their feet sank through to the ceiling above the first floor. Then a kid rode his bike from one end to the other and no one ever saw him again.

When the wind came it pinpointed pressure points in the corners of the windows and the panes pulsed, then broke. Coyotes stalked the grounds outside as clouds drifted overhead, moved closer to Oklahoma, then fell from the sky.

New Orleans filled up with sewage and 50,000 people died.
