Still Standing – Esplanade @ 7PM on Jan 19

Good news so far, and some sense of relief and confidence as we look to the next several days.

  • San Francisco Examiner,, Crumbling Pacifica cliff holding up in storm. Despite this week’s series of storms, including a powerful one Tuesday morning, project superintendent Fortunato said the cliff has not eroded further. “Right now we’re doing okay,” he said. “The storm today didn’t do any damage. We’re going to keep an eye on it.”
  • KPIX-TV 5 (CBS) Pacifica Cliff Holding Up Despite Storms.
  • KGO-TV 7 (ABC), Series of storms bring erosion concerns to bluffs. Despite the title and lead-in of this piece, the “news” is just that the dog park had further erosion. Later in the video they mention using soil nails to stabilize the top of the bluff beneath 330 Esplanade. We’d sure like someone in the media to give us a good accounting of the decisions made regarding next steps along Esplanade Ave!

This post is part of my coverage of the cliff erosion and collapse at 330 Esplanade Ave, Pacifica. For a complete chronology and links to many more photos see Evacuation underway at 330 Esplanade. You can see all of the pictures I’ve taken along Esplanade on Flickr at Evacuations at 330 Esplanade.
