The city of Pacifica is dealing with more problems along its coastline, possibly because of El Nino. Yet another sinkhole has opened up along Beach Boulevard. A snapshot shows the depression in the sidewalk of the Beach Boulevard Promenade that was reported to the city’s Department of Public Works on Saturday afternoon.
