Two houses on the beach in North Carolina were violently washed away by the waves … and they may not be the last.
The Cape Hatteras National Shore has warned that other assets could collapse in the coming days.
No one was on the road at the time of the incident. Extreme temperatures can be attributed.
Rising water levels and erosion are very common, especially on the edge of Cape Hatteras Island.
More than a dozen houses could collapse in the coming fall, according to a company in the affected area.
The nearby road is open, but authorities are urging people not to reach the scene and to drive “extremely carefully”.
Locals were asked to clear the beach of debris accumulated due to winds and waves.
