MONTEO, NORTH CAROLINA (Wavy) – The National Sea Coast of Cape Hatteras will hold a public discussion on Wednesday of some oceanfront homes that threaten to collapse on the beach.
The meeting will be held from 6 to 7 pm in the public building Rodanthe-Waves-Salvo at 23646 NC Highway 12, Rodanthe.
Eastern North Carolina National Park Superintendent David Halak, Der Commissioner Danny Coach and Deir County Planning Director Noah Gilam will be in private to discuss recent and potential future challenges and answer questions.
The meeting comes after the recent collapse of a five-bedroom house at 24183 Ocean Drive in Radante, south of the fishing pier of Hatteras Island.
The National Park Service said the wreckage was found on about 15 miles of coastline after the house collapsed. The beach near the crash site was also temporarily closed to visitors because debris can be dangerous.
According to the National Park Service, there are more homes that could collapse.
Beach erosion is a problem for Outer Banks, especially for homes on the waterfront. Millions of dollars were spent on nutrition plans to restore the beaches.
