Severe weather in Ohio causes home to fall in river

March 10, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
Video captured a home falling into a river in Piketon, Ohio, east of Cincinnati.

John Sparks began building his two-story home nearly a decade ago and was just days from moving in. He built the home on stilts about an acre away from the river, in case of flooding.

But severe weather and flooding on Tuesday quickly eroded the land. Despite losing this home, Sparks said he plans to rebuild.
