PACIFICA, California — U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier has pledged to seek state and federal assistance to repair the crumbling ocean cliffs in the city of Pacifica.

The congresswoman on Wednesday visited the endangered cliff-top apartments with local and federal officials and talked to residents who are being forced to move out of their homes.

Speier, whose district includes Pacifica, promised the community that she will do everything in her power to make sure federal funds are made available.

Officials on Monday tagged an apartment complex of about 20 units as unsafe, ordering residents to pack their things and be out by sunset. Residents scrambled to find someplace to go.

Pacifica officials last week declared a local state of emergency, prompted by storm damage to the small coastal city about 10 miles south of San Francisco.
