Tunnel Watch

If you've looked up at Smith Tower at some point in the last couple weeks, you've probably noticed that strange orb peeking out from the 22nd floor. It's not, in fact, a surveillance beacon watching what you bought from the hot dog vendor. It's a remote sensing device that take measurements that could be used to determine if objects (read: buildings or streets) in the area are moving due to the Seattle tunnel work. As the owner of J&M Café shows in the report, not everything is as stable on the ground as you'd hope. [KOMO]
