Wilbur-by-the-Sea Homes Collapse Into Ocean After Nicole Strikes Florida

 Thursday, November 10, 2022


Seven beachside homes in Wilbur-by-the-Sea collapsed into the Atlantic Ocean on Thursday after Nicole struck Florida as a hurricane and ripped across the state, devouring a large chunk of the coastline along Central Florida beaches.

A house located at 4101 S. Atlantic Ave. fell into the ocean Thursday morning and six other homes -- or at least a part of them -- also tumbled into the sea. No injuries were reported.

A man who lives in the area said he witnessed a house tumble into the ocean.

‘We were just standing on beach and a big section of the wall fell over, hit the support beam and it fell in the water. It was pretty frightening,’ he said. ‘We were just checking on our neighbors. It almost doesn’t seem real to see all this, even though you know it’s a possibility living here.’

Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said more homes will also be destroyed by beach erosion. ‘Just total devastation. And we’re not done yet,’ Chitwood said.
