The newly built South Concourse at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) opened for service today, with Mayor Eric Garcetti and previous Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa among others present. The Architecture looks interesting from the outside and the roofline is meant to invoke breaking waves against the shores of the Pacific Ocean, that lies just west of the airport, in our minds. The new concourse is also ready to handle “Group 6” aircraft which includes the Airbus A380 double decked aircraft which is currently the biggest passenger jet as measured both by number of passengers and in size.
I heard the story on CNN about this guy in Oklahoma who was listening to the meteorologist on the radio and heeded the warning to get under ground so he drove from his store at the mall that presumably had no underground shelter to the nearby Target store and rode the Tornado out in the freezer of the store.
