This is the shocking moment a family’s Washington beachfront house toppled into the ocean during a violent storm that has caused many more homeowners to fear for their properties.
The white-and-red vacation home was captured on video sitting precariously on the edge of a grassy embankment after high winds, rain and rough seas eroded the coastline at North Cove.
Seconds later, it started to topple forward, before plummeting over the edge and into the ocean with a loud crash. As it fell, its chimney snapped, landing in the stormy water several meters away.
