Video: A house collapses into the sea off the coast of North Carolina amid a storm surge. It was demolished that day as a second home.

A shocking video showed the moment an oceanfront home in North Carolina was caught by crashing waves and collapsed into the sea earlier this week:


Officials with Cape Hatteras National Seashore
called The home at 24265 Ocean Drive in Rodanthe was the second unoccupied home to plunge into the sea on Tuesday.

A house at 24235 Ocean Drive
collapsed earlier in the day.


What else?

Officer
called Visitors should exercise caution on the beach and in the sea along Hatteras Island as debris is common.

A home at 24183 Ocean Drive collapsed Feb. 9, and debris spread for many miles of beaches before the homeowner and volunteers removed much of it during an organized beach cleanup, officials said.

“Unfortunately, more homes on Seashore’s beaches may collapse in the near future,” said David Hallac, Superintendent of National Parks in eastern North Carolina. “We proactively reached out to homeowners along Ocean Drive in Rodanthe following the first home collapse and recommended that action be taken to prevent the collapse and its impact on Cape Hatteras National Seashore.”

said Fox Weather A low-pressure area off the east coast has created gusts of wind, high surf, currents and coastal flooding and is responsible for the surf waves that brought down the two houses.

The network said in a
separate story that the storm’s winds brought waves of up to 15 feet along parts of the Outer Banks and pushed ocean tides inland up to 4 feet above the ground.

“Time is running out”

WTKR TV spoke to the owner of a construction company that was doing clean-up work – except workers couldn’t get to the area in their trucks right away.

“Time is of the essence; it’s an emergency contract,” Mike Dunn told the broadcaster. “Usually we have to be there within 24 hours of the collapse, but in this situation where the roads are closed we can’t get there at the moment.”
