New TV: Were Evac Warnings Miscalculated?
A new edition of Newsmakers TV is now online, highlighting the work of two reporters who are making news with their coverage of the aftermath of the Montecito disaster: Indy News Editor Tyler Hayden talks about a series of high-impact stories raising tough questions about why so many of the victims of the catastrophe were not under mandatory evacuation order, and Melinda Burns goes in-depth on her reporting of the "perfect storm" of factors that created the deadly tragedy and whether it could happen again. Josh Molina is on hand to analyze the behind-the-scenes drama of the City Council's surprise vote for a special election on the Westside, and former council member Dale Francisco offers first person views on how local government reacted to the disaster, as well as his conservative take on the politics of the council and the 2nd District supervisor's race.
