Last house on Holland Island collapses

By Washington Post editors

The last house on Holland Island, a once-thriving fishing community, has fallen, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation says according to The Baltimore Sun.

The foundation says strong winds over the weekend brought down the house on the lower Eastern Shore island north of Crisfield. Photos from the organization show the dilapidated house crumpled amid the bay waters, chimneys gone and sides collapsed. Water reached to the second floor of the house.
