    Sorry, got cut off with my first attempt. Let me first commend the Silver Strand News, which I discovered only a few months ago – tremendous job.
    Questions: While I’ve been long following MdR’s “destruction plan”, I have yet to see anyone, at least in print, raise plans for disaster evacuation and propose the County could incur some liability with some 7K min cars attempting to escape simultaneously. Those of us on the strand and peninsula are fairly well doomed. Why?
    The Shores was originally approved for 5 stories; it’s actually 7. Is that to say the County, et al., distinguishes between residential and commercial usage for the same structure? I’ve noticed other mixed use structures with the same discrepancies in the Venice area. How and why?
    What will it take to convince the Coast Guard to 1) Increase the decibels for their warning siren? It’s useless unless you’re listening for it, and completely worthless with closed double and triple-paned glass. In the same vein, a 15 min alert is hardly sufficient time to get well east of Lincoln, even if one were prepared. With today’s technology, this critical issue should be easy to fix. Why hasn’t it been?
