That looks terrifying! Glad everyone is safe. How could 2020 get any worse took on an entire new meaning for those families.

Nature just took back what belongs to it..,🙆‍♀️


Gives new meaning to ' Slip sliding away'.

Don't know. how many unexpectable things we would have to see in coming months in this horrible 2020.

I'm happy for the dog. Living by the sea is always a risk. You must have respect for the mother nature.

I bet you the Norwegian government is gonna give them new land and build them new homes. In this country: That was something wasn't it? Incredible. Oh well. Did you have insurance?

WEWS Well, the residents said they wanted a change in scenery.

I just can’t imagine watching everything I own slowly slide into the sea.

Global warming

Beautiful..Now they have their own private island.

Incredible how the land takes the homes into the sea and then the sea washes them back to the land! Amazing how well the 2 storey white house retained its shape almost throughout. Good advert for soil investigation companies!
