Debris from a collapsed house continues to be found on Cape Hatteras National Seashore beaches, and a meeting has been scheduled to discuss the potential for more homes to fall into the Atlantic.

The National Park Service says if the owner of the house is unable to complete the extensive debris cleanup, the Seashore may hire its own contractor to continue the cleanup effort.

The area near the fallen house remains closed to the public and the Seashore has been in contact with owners of other homes along Ocean Drive in Rodanthe.

On Thursday from 6 to 7 p.m. the public is invited to participate in a discussion about several oceanfront houses that are in danger of collapsing on Cape Hatteras National Seashore beaches.

The location of the meeting is the Rodanthe-Waves-Salvo Community Building at 23646 N.C. Highway 12, Rodanthe, N.C.

National Parks of Eastern North Carolina Superintendent David Hallac, Dare County Commissioner Danny Couch and Dare County Planning Director Noah Gillam are scheduled to be at the in-person meeting to discuss the recent collapsed house, provide updates on other oceanfront houses and answer questions from community members.
