A Humboldt man was walking with his wife and dog on Centerville Beach in Ferndale last week when he witnessed a cliff crumbling before his eyes. As rock and dirt fell dangerously to the beach, he pulled out his phone to video the event.
Watch the video:
The views captured by Mike Jensen show a continuously troubling situation as the cliffs on the somewhat remote beach crumbled all month, leaving officials worried that it may eventually reach the Centerville Road above.
Although the cliff is still 40 feet away from the debilitating cliff, officials are already looking at plans to move the road.
The incident is a lesson for any beachgoers to be aware of their surroundings and stay alert of any rock and dirt movement on the cliffs above.
