Hawaii Homeowners losing homes

From Huffington Post
Rocky Point, a small neighborhood on the famed north shore of Oahu, is scrambling as yards, decks and even jacuzzis are being pulled out to sea.
“The deck that was out front of the house fell off Thursday night,” homeowner Greg Quinn told KITV, “and it began undermining the foundation of the house.”
The excessive erosion is unprecedented for many shoreline property owners. While past winter swells didn’t cause problems, last week’s waves claimed backyards overnight.
The nearby neighborhood of Sunset Beach saw similar erosion earlier this year, as did the famous Waikiki beach. A recent University of Hawaii study forecasted that more of the state’s homes may be at risk, with the state on pace to lose up to 100 feet of beach in the coming decades.
