RODANTHE, N.C. (WITN) - A second house today has collapsed on the Outer Banks, thanks to that coastal low.

The Cape Hatteras National Seashore said the home on Ocean Drive in Rodanthe is just two houses down from one that collapsed this morning.

Both homes were unoccupied, according to a news release.

The beach along Ocean Drive has been closed to protect people from the fallen homes and more homes in the area that could collapse.

People are encouraged to stay away from the beach in this area.

Back on February 9, another house on Ocean Drive fell and debris spread throughout the beach. The homeowner then organized a cleanup where much of the debris was removed, efforts are ongoing.

The National Seashore says they will work closely with the homeowners of Tuesday’s fallen homes to plan beach cleanups.
