Remember when people used to talk about how someday California might slide into the ocean?
Well, for several housing complexes in the town of Pacifica, home to 40,000 people, this became a reality when a state of emergency was declared due to El Niño. Apparently the cliffs there have been so eroded due to the weather, that authorities fear the cliff-side apartments might actually slide off into the ocean.
Check this out:
On Monday afternoon, an apartment building along Esplanade became the at least the third property to be evacuated. Police fanned out to post yellow tags on 20 apartment doors, giving residents access to move their belongings out.
“That’s scary,” Pacifica Police Chief Daniel Steidle told KTVU, referring to the eroding cliffs out the apartment windows. “I wouldn’t want to be in those buildings right now. It’s very scary to look at that.”
Police have been going from complex to complex, evacuating people.
Some residents were more willing to leave than others.
“You guys are going to have to physically drag me out,” Michelle McKay told Steidle. “I’m not leaving!”
She can say that now… but she might be forced to leave anyway in a way she doesn’t want to go if she doesn’t get out of there soon.
