Cliffside apartment complex in danger after a week of rain

Posted: Updated:

PACIFICA, Calif. (CBS 8) – A rain-soaked week in the San Francisco Bay area has residents living on a crumbling cliff on high alert.

Six units of a cliffside apartment complex were evacuated Friday after at least 30 feet of bluff broke off.

The building sits next door to a complex evacuated last month after a similar collapse.

Engineers have begun inserting horizontal rods into the back of the bluff to reinforce it.

Another wall will eventually be built at the bottom of the bluff in an effort to save both complexes.
