Thanks so much for keeping your neighbors in San Clemente informed (3 days after the fact) that there was even such a possible threat ! Unbelievable !

Ah, VERY believable! What did we hear from OCR about the event? Were mobile units on-site from CNN? I depend upon Patch to provide local news in a more timely manner than any other news source. Then too, there may have been military protocol about releasing information to the media....just a thought.
