Tuesday brought brutal weather conditions to the Cape Hatteras National Seashore in North Carolina. By early afternoon, there had been reports that TWO houses had collapsed into the ocean due to destructive high tides with 16-foot waves and powerful winds.

The official Cape Hatteras National Seashore Twitter account shared a video of a house collapsing in Rodanthe, North Carolina. This was the second house of the day to collapse into the ocean and it’s pretty wild that someone was there with recording at the exact moment the house’s stilts broke and it was swallowed by the sea.

As early as Sunday, the Cape Hatteras National Seashore Twitter account was sharing warnings that water front level forecasts were concerning and everyone should expect beach impacts in the coming days. But I don’t think anyone expected sixteen-foot waves and hellacious wind battering homes so badly that there were two Cape Hatteras houses collapsing in the same day.

Twitter Reacts To Ocean Swallowing $381,200 House

Shortly after this video started going viral, ‘Zillow’ began trending on Twitter after people looked up details and discovered that the house was estimated to be worth $381,200.

Here’s what it looked like before it washed away into the ocean:

Can’t help but wonder what is going to happen to those other houses next to the collapsed home. They’re just as close to the ocean and just barely protected by the beach.

It’s interesting that ‘Zillow’ was trending and not ‘Climate Change’ because half of the tweets in the mentions are talking about climate change.

Here’s a look at the first house to collapse on Tuesday morning:

Here’s what the roads looked like in Cape Hatteras to give you a sense of how high the tides were and how destructive the winds have been for several days:

Footage of this Cape Hatteras house collapse is startling. I grew up on an island in Florida and constantly worry about whether my childhood memories will disappear like this house if one powerful storm comes through.
