Multiple North Carolina Houses Collapse into the Atlantic Ocean and the video is wild. You can see another video of the disaster here.
On Tuesday, the East Coast experienced wild weather. According to NBC News, the weather was so bad that two beachfront homes on North Carolina’s Outer Banks collapsed. Strong waves, high tides, and whipping winds caused both homes to fall into the Atlantic Ocean.
The first unoccupied home fell at Ocean Drive in Rodanthe on Tuesday, the National Park Service said. Ocean Drive beaches were closed as a precaution “to protect the public from the dangers associated with the collapsed home” as officials warned more collapses could follow. The park service said a second unoccupied home on Ocean Drive crumbled into the water a short time later.
