PAW PAW — About an hour after viewing a Michigan State Police video of erosion along Lake Michigan, Van Buren County commissioners adopted a resolution asking state officials to declare the shoreline a disaster area.

The video Tuesday showed views of the shoreline, starting at Glenn in Allegan County and ending to the south at Palisades Park. The area includes the beaches and harbor at South Haven, Pilgrim Haven Land Preserve, North Point Land Preserve and Palisades Nuclear Plant. Added were overlays of street names and other features.
