Unheard of in the region
This landslide follows 15 days of torrential rains in the region. With erosion affecting part of California, the ocean is gaining ground. “We had simply never seen that in the region, it’s unusual. But we have to be ready for it to happen again in the future”, warns the mayor of the city, Chris Duncan.
