WHITE RIVER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A western Michigan lakefront home has fallen down a sandy bluff in an area plagued by erosion.

WOOD-TV reports that Muskegon County officials had been monitoring the condition of the White River Township home which toppled over late Tuesday.

Neighbor Bob Lloyd tells WZZM-TV that he heard a sound “and could just see the house going.”

The home's owner was at another property when it fell. She wanted neighbors to pitch in for a shoreline rock wall to slow erosion but ran out of time.

Storms have caused beach erosion, flooding and damage to seawalls and roads.
