Some board members may already have heard that the Gonzales organ of Soissons Cathedral was damaged last Thursday night when the west-end rose window imploded during a severe storm.

There is more information (in German), links to French newspaper articles, and lots of pictures here:

This French news article contains a few pictures of the damage to the organ. The organ sits right behind the Rose window so will have born the brunt of the damage. http://www.lunion.fr...ree-sur-l-orgue

Sorry, forgot that. You're right, of course.
