More evacuations in Pacifica as cliffs give way to the sea

Massive chunks of dirt seen crashing into the roiling surf this past weekend persuaded Pacifica officials Monday to evacuate cliffside apartments that everyone agrees are inching closer to a catastrophic collapse into the sea.
Dozens of residents living in 20 apartments at 310 Esplanade Ave. were ordered out by city officials, who declared the dwellings unsafe.
The city will allow the residents to remove their belongings, but they will not be allowed into the apartments for anything other than that, said Mike Cully, Pacifica’s chief building official.
