Scripps study outlines California cliffs at highest risk for collapse
San Diego is no stranger to discussion surrounding the dangers of erosion.
A 2019 bluff collapse in Encinitas caused the death of three beach goers. And last month SANDAG announced the beginning of a $300 million effort to relocate a section of train tracks along the Del Mar coast due to erosion.
Despite the local focus on the region's delicate cliffs, San Diego does not rank among the most at-risk coastal areas for collapse.
According to the study, Northern California cliffs have eroded at a much higher rate in recent years.
Adam Young, who led the study, joined Midday Edition on Wednesday with more on the findings.
