Call to Action: Seattle Tunnel Article

From Sylvia Plummer, December 23, 2014

Here's another opportunity to write an email to the Los Angeles Times

Seattle Tunnel Woes make front page news in the Los Angeles Times. 12/23/14

The article discusses the sinking building in Seattle caused by Bertha (the tunneling Machine).
Bertha is the same size tunneling machine that will be used to build the SR-710 tunnels.
They forgot to mention a few things.

1.  Seattle is digging a big pit above Bertha in order to reach Bertha and make repairs.
2.  Los Angeles Metro has a plan to dig a 4.9 mile, 5 story tunnel between the 10 and 210 Freeways (SR-710). 
     The tunnel would go under El Sereno, South Pasadena and Pasadena.  Should we be concerned for their homes?
