Spotted at Mothers Beach in Marina Del Rey.


LAPD Investigators have located skeletal remains in the Ballona Wetlands.

They were searching for a woman, Kolby Story, who went missing in the Mar Vista area in December

Kolby Story, 32, was last seen in the early morning hours of December 7, 2020, in the 12300 block of Pacific Avenue in Mar Vista. According to reports from December, a few hours before she went missing, Story had called a friend from Venice to help her find her car keys. Around 2 a.m., she left Venice and drove in the direction of her Mar Vista home, but she never made it home.

Her car was later discovered in a Marina del Rey impound lot. The car, with a flat tire, had been towed from a parking lot near a Ralphs grocery store in Marina del Rey.

New search efforts for Story were underway Friday after some of her belongings were found near the area and turned over to the Los Angeles Police Department.

LAPD's Robbery-Homicide Division investigators, Pacific Division personnel, and Metropolitan Division, along with California Office of Emergency Service, Fire and Rescue Division K9 Search Teams, and Story’s family members and friends, Started conducting a search of the Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve and Ballona Creek for Story Friday morning. The Rose Ave storm drain at Venice Beach was also searched.

Friday afternoon it was announced that LAPD Investigators have located skeletal remains in the Ballona Wetlands.The coroner's office will remove the remains & conduct their investigation. They are unable to confirm anything further related to the remains.

Story was described by police as being 5’4'' tall, weighing 115 lbs. She has brown hair and hazel eyes. Her family in December offered a $100,000 reward for her safe return.



Anyone with information regarding Story's case was asked to contact the Los Angeles Police Department, Robbery-Homicide Division, at 213-486-6890. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.





That huge 2-story homeless shed in Marina Del Rey has finally been tore down.



It was built by this guy from the Camino Island area north of Seattle, who came to Los Angeles to be a musician, after he failed to make it as one in Nashville. His name is Sean Tyrrell.



Sean was not homeless when he first arrived in Venice, he was staying at the Pod Share, but apparently he got into some arguements because of his music and got kicked out.



“From there I slept in my car three or four nights just around the area looking for places I could pitch a tent. I finally settled on this place." Sean told an interviewer. "Back then, there were other people living here on the sidewalk but not jammed like in other parts of the city. The people that were here got paid to leave. I was offered $100 but I’d already made good progress with my building. I’m legally here and I've obviously spent a lot of time investing in the structure. The offer was an insult.”

So for almost a year, Sean has been building up his shed and battling his residents of the area. He claims they send people to harm him and damage his property. “There’s a few people in the neighborhood who were paying people to attack me for no reason."



L.A.F.D. claimed his "artist studio" to be a definite fire hazard. And after months and months of complaints to the city, it was finally tore down.



Full interview with this guy from March can be read here on Facebook.

The 2020 Fireworks Show at Marina Del Rey has been cancelled. LA Beaches And Harbors made this announcement this morning:

"Sadly, the 2020 Marina del Rey July 4th Fireworks Show is cancelled due to COVID-19. The level of crowd and traffic control needed to effectively plan and manage the thousands of spectators that gather in Marina del Rey for the event is always a major public health and safety concern, and the current guidelines for physical distancing and large gatherings make such an event impossible. We hope to bring the show back in the near future to commemorate not only America’s Independence Day, but also to celebrate a stronger and healthier community."

The magnitude-5.3 earthquake that rattled Southern California was the strongest in the region in several years, but it did not produce any tsunami warnings.

The quake was far too weak to generate a tsunami, said Chris Popham, lead oceanographer for the National Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer, Alaska. Generally, earthquakes of a magnitude 7 or above are those that cause concern, he said.

Additionally, the earthquake occurred on a strike-slip fault, in which the faults are generally moving in a horizontal direction.

The worst tsunamis tend to occur on a different type of system, known as a subduction zone earthquake, in which faults produce a great deal of vertical motion. Subduction zone earthquakes are the kind that produced massive, deadly flooding in Japan in 2011 and happened off the coast of Oregon and Washington states in 1700.

There are, however, scenarios in which earthquakes in Southern California do cause significant tsunamis.

A study published in 2015 by U.S. Geological Survey and UC Riverside scientists found that tsunami wave heights could approach as high as 20 feet in the Ventura Harbor and Channel Islands Beach area near Oxnard. That study focused on on a hypothetical scenario in which a magnitude-7.7 earthquake begins nine miles under the Earth's surface, under the mountains northeast of Santa Barbara.

Caltech seismologist Egill Hauksson said an offshore earthquake in 1812 caused a tsunami of perhaps 3 feet tall in the Ventura area. But because recorded history in California is so short, scientists don't have too much documented information of how big tsunamis have been.
