Eroding bluff falls on Fletcher Cove beach

A “major bluff failure” occurred at Fletcher Cove beach sometime between late Thursday night and early Friday morning last week.

Debris from the part of the bluff located north of the park, near the community center fell onto the beach, with no reports of injury. City staff put up caution tape, roping off the section of beach where the rocks fell.

Head lifeguard Jason Shook said there is a constant threat of debris falling from the cliffs due to saturation from winter rain and waves from high tide. Many times, however, it is small rocks falling off and washing out to sea when the waves come in.

“We just take the approach to advice everybody to stay away from the bluffs,” he said.
Shook said people usually only stay in the area of danger during high tide, when there is less beach to set chairs and towels down.
