Action News Jax Chief Meteorologist Mike Buresh says this home is in an area that had been hit hard with the hurricanes and erosion. 

The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office and St. Johns County Fire and Rescue responded to the scene to find the home unoccupied. No injuries have been reported.

The prior homeowners tell our partner Action News Jax that the home had been damaged in Hurricane Irma, but this storm pushed most of it over the edge. They further say their next door neighbor’s home washed away in Irma.

Officials are urging you not to go to the area just to see the damage firsthand, because the structure is not safe.
