VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. — A home in the Wilbur-By-The-Sea community in Volusia County has collapsed into the ocean.
The home was one of many structures that the county was monitoring after being damaged by Hurricane Ian. It’s one of the hardest-hit areas by the storm.
Storm surge from Tropical Storm Nicole washed out some of the home’s foundation and the structure partially collapsed on Thursday. County leaders said the tide is expected to get higher Thursday night.
Channel 9 got a view inside the home and saw major damage inside, with the ocean-facing side of the structure exposed to the sea.
At least 25 homes in Wilbur-By-the-Sea were evacuated after being declared structurally unsafe, Volusia County officials said.
Channel 9 has several crews in Volusia County and will provide continuing coverage on Eyewitness News.
