Oceana County Sand Dune Close to Claiming Another Home

An Oceana County sand dune, which already swallowed a guest home, is close to claiming another.

The 80-foot-tall dune is near a cottage close to the pedestrian dune area of Silver Lake State Park.

The dune still contains pieces of the cottage it annihilated in April.

Local cottage owners have teamed up to fight back. They are trying to remove the leading edge of the dune that’s now on their property.

A dune expert says wind direction contributes to the movement of sand dunes.
