Fixing the Landslide

As the landslide in San Pedro worsens, workers continue to try to make the area safer.

Crew workers continued to secure zones in San Pedro affected by landslides Tuesday, constructing an 8-foot-tall fence to keep people out of dangerous areas.

Paseo Del Mar began to crack over the summer, and has worsened lately.  Fissures in the road are now 20 to 20 feet deep in some places.  Underground storm drains were exposed and chunks of concrete fell into the ocean below.

A city statement said "The affected area of the landslide represents an immediate and life-threatening hazard."

No homes in the area are in danger, but officials are worried that the impending rainy season might make the ground even more unstable. 

Some experts believe that decades of home-building in the scenic region may have led to the destabilization of the land.

A similar landslide in 1999 destroyed 16 acres of a golf course.
