Coastal erosion California

Some cliff side residents in Pacifica, California USA, are being forced to leave their homes as the ground outside their backdoors falls into the sea. 

 The city declared a state of emergency last week amid concerns that streets and some homes were at risk due to erosion, according to a statement. “El Nino is hitting the city’s coastline very hard and creating almost daily reports of impacts to both public and private property,” city Manager Lorie Tinfow said in a statement.

Drone video of an apartment complex teetering on the edge of a cliff, shows mounds of ground breaking off the side of the cliff and falling into the ocean.
