NH house gets carried away by storm flooding, wrecked against a bridge

By Seth Koenig, BDN Staff

In this video captured by a CBS 13 viewer, a home in Warren, New Hampshire, is swept away in the Baker River. The video shows the home being carried into a bridge, where it’s tipped on its side and torn apart.

According to CBS Boston, the video was originally posted by local man Tom Babbit on Facebook, where it has been viewed more than 150,000 times and been shared by multiple media outlets. Babbit called the scene “so sad” and said a July storm swelled the river and “washed away several hundred feet of their property” before Monday’s storm flooded the area again and claimed the building.
