Unprecedented amounts of winter rain are walloping much of California. Last week in the town of San Clemente, an oceanfront landslide left four apartment buildings teetering on the edge of a cliff. Only a couple of weeks earlier, a hillside collapsed under a home in Newport Beach. And parts of the rail line linking LA to San Diego on the OC coast have been sliding towards the ocean.
