Residents along the already battered Pacifica coastline are taking another hit as an apartment complex has just been deemed uninhabitable.
In an emergency meeting Monday night, the city intends to confirm a local emergency.

It's likely to be a loud meeting with some of that noise coming from residents of the Esplanade Apartments, who have been ordered by police to leave for their own safety.

The city believes the apartment house is in danger of falling into the ocean.
Yellow tags were posted on doors warning residents to leave, though some residents say they won't be leaving.
"The building official says they have reached the point where no one can live inside them," said Pacifica Police Chief Dan Steidle.
