SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A section of a Point Loma-area sea bluff that had been cordoned off for weeks due to dangerous instability collapsed late Wednesday afternoon.

The ocean-front sandstone ledge in the 1300 block of Sunset Cliffs Boulevard, near Adair Street, gave way about 5 p.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department. There were no reports of injuries.

A municipal geologist had deemed the scenic site, which is near a public parking lot, unsafe about a month ago, and the city fenced it off, SDFRD spokesman Lee Swanson said.

Swanson described the stretch of failed bluff as "large.'' An estimate of the amount of earth that sloughed off onto the beach below is currently unknown.

    Two giant pandas are headed back to China in April, according the San Diego Zoo. The San Diego Zoo developed an agreement with China in 1996 to house two adult pandas and their offspring. The extensions to that original agreement have expired and 27-year-old female giant panda Bai Yun and her son, six-year-old Xiao Liwu  will be leaving San Diego in April.
