Waves crash near a damaged section of seawall in Pacifica, Calif. Living with the Pacific Ocean as your backyard has its benefits. But the crumbling ocean cliffs have forced dozens to move quickly and at a high cost. Still, others remain, unsure of when the call to leave might come. The toll has been heavy in recent years. In 2010, two apartment buildings undermined by previous storms were evacuated and face demolition. Last month, during El Nino storms, the residents of another apartment building and two homes were forced to move out. Continuing erosion has left these three neighboring apartments sitting unsafely on the edge of an 80-foot bluff.
