Seaside squatters. Try this on...

I got a ride today from San Fran heading south. My driver insisted we check out the apartments falling into the sea. Duh.

Turns out, Pacifica, CA is facing massive amounts of erosion and damage from El Nino and other factors.

This article sums up the situation and includes drone footage of the cliffs crumbling:
The video is mostly uneventful. At 0:36, you'll see the biggest chunk go down. At roughly 4:15, you'll see someone on their patio at cliff's edge.

Some of these apartments are still occupied, but several have been evacuated, specifically 310, 320, and 330 Esplanade Ave (map).
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

  1. Paying the Bills

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
