Residents visit threatened Pacifica apartment

Residents of the Pacifica apartment building above a crumbling cliffside were allowed back into their homes for a few minutes Thursday afternoon.

Several people were able to enter the building to grab a few more belongings.

The residents have been out of their homes since mid-December, when the cliff next to Esplanade Avenue began giving way.

Officials do not expect the residents to be allowed back into their homes for at least several months, despite intense efforts to reinforce the hillside.
