The Matanuska River has been swallowing up homes along its banks for many years, but the latest house to fall victim to erosion was captured in a video as it sank into the current.
A Facebook user posted two videos on Monday of the log home falling into the river. In one, you can hear pieces of the structure snapping, then see a door and wall fall off as the home collapses, drops into the river and drifts away.
The posts referred to it as the "Johnson's Homestead Cabin built in early 40s." The user also wrote that "Mom and Dad have been out of it for 2 (years) now."
Last fall, Gov. Bill Walker issued a disaster declaration for the erosion, citing "the severity and magnitude of the imminent disaster."
