I understand that sometimes getting a story out quickly means that writing suffers, but consider a sentence from this AP piece on an evacuation in Riverside County:

However, Corona authorities, defending their decision to evacuate 508 homes, 330 mobile homes and a recreational vehicle park near Prado Dam, about 50 miles east-southeast of downtown Los Angeles.

The parser's definitely going to fall over on that one. ABC News has a cleaned up version of the same piece.
