Massive section of Los Angeles roadway falls into the ocean

November 22, 1011 — San Pedro, California – Roadway slides into the Pacific Ocean, after heavy rains soak southern California. Heavy rain Sunday (November 20) caused a large portion of a California road to collapse, leaving a gaping hole in a cliff-side. A 900 foot (274 meter) section of the road south of Los Angeles crumbled and fell into the Pacific Ocean. The road had already been closed to pedestrians and vehicle traffic after cracks continued to expand over the past few months at a rate of four inches a day. Officials are asking the residents to keep their distance because the road remains unstable. There were no reports of injuries or property damage in the immediate area.
