Satellite Photos of My Friend's Beachfront Galveston Home - What's Left of It

A good friend bought a beachfront cottage in Galveston, TX a year or so ago. She was told it would probably be a month before anyone would be let back in to assess the damage. But she just got a satellite photo from NOAA and her cottage is one of 3 that at least are standing. There used to be 11 of them. The larger house 3 feet away from theirs is totally gone. Here are before and after photos.

I feel sorry for the people that lost their homes. I would never live that close to the water, especially in an area that gets hurricanes, but even in the Great Lakes, I wouldn't. Erosion takes away land and sometimes homes.
