Lake Michigan home on the verge of collapse

A lakefront home in Wisconsin is a little too lakefront now.

The house on Lake Michigan is on the verge of falling into the water. The homeowners have lived there for 15 years, but erosion is now causing the home to collapse.

In the last week, the screened-in porch on the house fell down the bluff, forcing the couple to evacuate.

 "We were watching tv and reading the paper and we just heard the loudest crash and we thought what is that? And we both got up and looked out the window and slowly but surely down went the porch" said homeowner Marge Lindgren.

Lindgren said the cost of stabilizing the home is too much in addition to paying the mortgage.

The couple is staying with family until they figure out their next steps.
