Force of Storm Collapses Mass. Home into Ocean

(WGGB/CNN) — A winter storm whipped waves off the coast of Plum Island, Massachusetts into a destructive frenzy.

The pounding surf caused this home to collapse after the foundation was washed away.

The home was vacant and had been condemned in 2009.

Local resident Bob Connors said, “All hell has broken out up here.”

Emergency responders in Humvees were having trouble navigating coastal roads on Plum Island.

WCVB-TV reports that according to the town’s building inspector, three other houses in the area were “total losses” and many others suffered some damage, but may be repairable.
