The City of Pacifica, California, has declared a state of emergency and ordered the evacuation of several homes perched atop coastal bluffs that are at risk of crumbling into the ocean as a result of relentless El Nino storms.
Dramatic drone footage posted on YouTube over the weekend captured huge chunks of the cliffs falling into the surf, with condemned apartment buildings atop teetering precariously on the edge.
Residents were forced out of two compromised clifftop homes Monday, joining the inhabitants of several other nearby properties and apartment buildings abandoned in past years.
Pacifica city manager Lorie Tinfow on Friday declared a local state of emergency, prompted by storm damage to the coastal city of 40,000 located about 10 miles south of San Francisco.
‘El Niño is hitting the city’s coastline very hard and creating almost daily reports of impacts to both public and private property,’ she said in a statement.
Storms in 2003 began shearing off huge chunks of the sandstone cliffs in Pacifica. Several of the homes and apartments were abandoned in 2010 and are currently awaiting demolition.
