(NECN) - A second house on Plum Island in Massachusetts has fallen victim to the latest winter storm. Demolition crews will start tearing down the houses Saturday.

One of those homes was ripped off its foundation during high tide of the fierce winter storm. Fortunately, no one was in the home when part of the house ended up in the ocean. The homeowner is in Florida and aware of what happened.

Officials say three other homes are "structurally compromised" and also may have to be torn down.
Building inspectors have condemned 12 homes in all on Plum Island.
