New Year's Day 2010: The north (left) end of the bluff has fallen away since yesterday and the right end of the first-floor railing is beginning to sag from erosion beneath it. A fissure appears to be opening up a little to the right of the railing in the ice plant covering. Meanwhile, crews work day and night to save the building.
