Maybe that global warming thing is just on the east coast? Hat tip to cbmark for sending this in!

An oceanfront vacation home in the Outer Banks area made famous by the movie Nights in Rodanthe completely collapsed into the sea, most likely due to erosion, causing debris to wash up along the North Carolina shoreline on Wednesday morning.

Officials from the National Parks Service of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore warned visitors to ‘use caution when participating in recreational activities on the beach and in the ocean between the villages of Rodanthe and Salvo due to debris from a collapsed house.’

A press release sent out by the local National Parks Service noted that smaller amounts of debris were found more than seven miles away. Dare County is working with the agency to clear the crumbled house and remove the debris from the ocean.

The cozy beach town in the Outer Banks became a popular destination after the 2008 premiere of the Nicholas Sparks movie Nights in Rodanthe that starred Richard Gere and Diane Lane, which was set in the coastal town.


Ocean St

This oceanfront 2br/3.5 ba, 2,823sf upper unit in Carlsbad just closed for $4,925,000 cash, which was $75,000 under list.  MT was 12 days.  Unlike on Neptune in Leucadia, all of the oceanfront homes on this street have direct beach access.
