A fine powder coated everything out of doors in the city. No one could identify it. So the unease of yesterday returned.
Elijah and I were kept quartered close to the Supreme Commander’s command center. Tomas stopped in and out throughout the day and gave us updates. He had been tasked to analyze the powder. Was it by design from the enemy?
He had a breakthrough come afternoon. The material in combination with another compound is highly combustible when water is present.
It made little sense until someone else realized the attack may be directed at the river coming into the city or the tanks fed by the desalination plants.
Thus the army must decide whether to evacuate or not.
