California Residences Threatened as Cliffs Crumble

A local state of emergency has been declared in Pacifica, California.

— -- Dramatic video from a California city in a state of emergency shows residences teetering on the edge of eroding cliffs.

Property owners in the affected areas were notified that the structures are no longer safe to inhabit, according to a press release issued by the city.

The residences seen in the aerial video have lost their backyards to the erosion and one patio is stretching over the cliff as it slips away.

“We still have a month or so of weather, and we can't predict what can happen looking ahead," Pacifica city manager Lorie Tinfow told KGO.
