Hays is Western Kansas, West of Salina, and Salina happens to be the end of the world until you get to Denver. West of Salina, Kansas is something
that most people cannot imagine.
The story says a helicopter was dispatched from Topeka, Kansas, but that is unlikely. A helicopter would most likely have come out of Wichita.
It is a GREAT story! It lost me a little when the woman started talking about how she told her boy to be careful on his bike, that was reaching. And
it is a little unbelievable that several officers would get lost while looking for a town, but no mention of them contacting the state authorities or
Also, in rural towns like this, nobody lives right in town. The 1000 yard fissure would not have engulfed many of the residents. The homes in these
Western Kansas towns are 1000 yards apart anyway.
BUT, the initial plot drew me in! The idea that this could happen out there in Kansas is plausible! I'm sure more than one town has gone missing
over the last couple of centuries out in extreme BFE, KS.
It would have been more fun and intriguing without the burning kids. The writer started grasping for wow factor, when they didn't really need it.
The spookiness was already adequate enough.
