PEACEFUL EASY FEELING
The heroes begin writing their own chapter in Emerald City history on an otherwise pleasant day. There’s enough sunshine to make most anyone glad to be alive, and seemingly all of Emerald City has ventured outside to take advantage of it. Every downtown street is lined with people out roller-blading, walking their dogs, peoplewatching at sidewalk cafes, or doing a little shopping.
Bargain-hunters are preeminently drawn to Yellow Brick Row, and most local merchants have sidewalk sales set up to greet them. Food and beverage carts aren’t hard to find, and city newcomers are bound to notice the Row’s restauranteurs offer cuisine with an Asian flair. There are plenty of burgers and fries to be had, but just as many good spots to grab some pad Thai, teriyaki, and other Eastern delicacies.
Before any of the characters can sit down and grab their chopsticks, however, the deafening sound of trouble interrupts their good times.
The loud, heart-stopping sounds of an explosion and shattering glass along with the accompanying shock strike you all without warning. Within moments, a strange cloud of silvery mist blankets the surrounding area. Just as panic and flight are about to take hold, the cloud begins to swirl without any evident prompting from the wind.
It whips itself into a cyclonic mass, discharging what appear to be bolts of bluish lightning both within itself and outward around its immediate vicinity.
Both blast and bolts subside and begin to dissipate before anyone (yourselves included) can arrive on the scene, leaving the dead and injured as the most immediate concern. The fleeing, panicked crowds and hopelessly jammed roads make you all the only first-responders available for the critically injured now.

Jacie charges in towards the carnage, looking around for survivors. Though she has no medical training, she has seen a lot of Medical shows, and done some reading on the subject, and can at least tell the others what *Not* to do. She sees a couple others helping the wounded and starts yelling at them.
"Don't rip that out, he'll just bleed more..
Don't move that guy, you'll make it worse..
Somebody help me move this girder off this girl!"

Jim was jogging, trying to get a clean way through the crowd. It was a nice day to bring his daily training outside.
After getting through the shock of the explosion he quickly moves in, but not sure what to do. He grasps his cell to call an ambulance. Even with many bystanders many forget to do the basic thing and start doing things for the sake of doing things.

Kyle was patiently waiting on a bench for his girlfriend Melissa. They had scheduled time to meet after school today for a late lunch at Sakuro's. Unfortunately she had called just moments ago to say she was stuck in traffic and running late. To kill time until she arrived, Kyle had found an empty bench and sat people watching.
While he waited he watched a few joggers trying to dodge the pedestrians, high school girls dressed in clothes entirely too small trying to attract the attention of high school boys, shoppers, families, couples, people eating, some just walking around enjoying the nice weather, and even a few very attractive college age girls. Kyle made sure he got a good look at them even though he was very much in love with his girlfriend Melissa. It never hurt to look unless your girlfriend catches you doing it and smacks you in the head.
Without warning there was an explosion! Kyle dove to the ground thinking it might be a terrorist attack. He could clearly hear glass shattering all around him and a shockwave swept through the area. When that passed, he lifted his head and looked around at the damage. What came next was a sight he would never forget. A cloud unlike anything he had ever seen suddenly appeared in the sky above the downtown area. Within moments it turned into a tornado that swirled and caused more damage and devastation. Strange blue lightning shot out of the swirling mass causing more damage wherever it struck. He watched in horror as innocent people were struck and fell to the ground, likely dead. Dozens more were injured by flying debris or by falling debris from buildings where the lightning struck.
Almost as quickly as it began, the lightning faded and stopped followed shortly by the cloud dissipating. When the sky cleared, Kyle saw damage and devastation reminiscent of tornadoes in his native midwest.
Picking himself up off the ground, Kyle immediately began to help those around him. He cleared debris off of injured people wherever he could and asked those who were conscious if they were okay. He tried to get an idea of how badly injured the people were. Some had broken bones, others only bruises and cuts, and still others with serious injuries.
"Does anyone have any medical training?" he yelled out trying to be heard above the noise.

Jacie rushed over to the downed military man.
"hold still, we'll get you out."
She waved some help over, Looking at the man for a few seconds.
"Hey soldier, your name wouldn't happen to be Dave, would it?"
Jacie didn't usually frequent this area, but had been set to meet one of her online friends for lunch. She'd been running a bit late and had just arrived when the 'cyclone' happened. Dave had said he'd be dressed in fatigues, and she had worn her one and only dress for the occasion.. Which was, she realized belatedly, hiking up with all her activity. 'the one time I wear a dress..' she mutters to herself, ignoring the slight inconvenience as they work to free him.

Kyle took a good look around and saw some others trying to help the trapped and injured.
"I'm going to try to help free some of the people that are trapped. You'll do just fine, I know it." he said encouragingly.
Then he started walking around and trying to lift some of the debris off of those who were trapped.

John Sears was in his disguise of a trench coat, drinking his cup of coffee at the famous Yellow Brick Row Coffee House. He may be in the mood to not want attention, but he'll be damned to drink second grade coffee. His enjoyment with his tasty coffee was to be knocked down for ... Literally! A loud boom with a sudden of a shock wave knocked him straight down off his feet.
Getting his bearings straight, and getting up to his feet, he first and foremost act was to go to the source of the loud booming sound. Seeing people in trouble, he instantly went to help to do what he can. While assisting in removing the debris, he gave courage to the trapped people. "Don't worry, you're going to be all right." "You're going to make it." And even the occasional "Have no fear, John is here!"
