Island Free Press: Two at-risk Rodanthe oceanfront homes moved, four more to be relocated

August 27th, 2022

National Parks of Eastern N.C. Superintendent David Hallac provided updates on the problematic and endangered oceanfront homes in Rodanthe at a well-attended public meeting at the Rodanthe-Waves-Salvo Community Building on Wednesday night, August 24.

In the past two years, four homes along a severely eroded stretch of shoreline in Rodanthe have collapsed into the ocean, creating a debris field that spanned for 15 miles or more. One home, built in 1977, collapsed in 2020, while three additional homes collapsed in the first five months of 2022. A 1980 house fell into the ocean in February, while two more 1980s-era homes collapsed within hours on May 10 during a nor’easter.
