Dramatic footage shows £300,000 house collapsing into the sea during stormy weather
A house worth more than £300,000 collapsed into the ocean and was swept away by the sea.
Footage captures the final moments of the beach house in America before the rough sea shatters the stilts it stands on.
The unoccupied home in North Carolina, US, was estimated to be worth £308,436 according to Zillow, a real estate marketplace.
It was said to be the second abandoned home to collapse into the sea that day.
The home can be seen on the video standing wonkily on its stilts among the stormy weather.
Slowly it begins to tilt forward and then collapses into the sea. In the aftermath, debris can be seen, strewn across the beach.
Cape Hatteras National Seashore released a statement with regards to the incident which happened yesterday.
They wrote: "Cape Hatteras National Seashore (Seashore) has confirmed that an unoccupied house at 24265 Ocean Drive, Rodanthe, N.C. collapsed this afternoon.
"This is the second unoccupied house collapse of the day at the Seashore.
"The beach near Ocean Drive is closed and law enforcement officials will close Ocean Drive shortly. Visitors are cautioned to stay away from the beach in this area.”
David Hallac, superintendent of National Parks of Eastern North Carolina, said: “Unfortunately, there may be more houses that collapse onto Seashore beaches in the near future.
“We proactively reached out to homeowners along Ocean Drive in Rodanthe after the first house collapse and recommended that actions be taken to prevent collapse and impacts to Cape Hatteras National Seashore.”
Pictures and videos shared online show the chaos of the seafront where buildings are directly exposed to the sea.
One video shows the surrounding residential area and how exposed the houses remain.
Alongside the collapsed blue house two others sit directly on the sea front, where waves crash against them.
