A University of Windsor researcher wants to create a beach warning system to prevent drowning deaths. The school's dean of science Chris Houser is launching a pilot project, Smart Beach, this summer in Kincardine, Bruce County, that aims to make beaches safer. According to Houser, about 50 people drown on average in the Great Lakes each year. "We really don't have a good understanding as to when and how those [beach] hazards develop and how do we better provide safety messaging to beach users,"
