Erosion Forces Move Of Beachfront Houses

(South Kingstown, RI) -- Some beachfront cottages are being moved inland in South Kingstown. About two-dozen cottages at Roy Carpenter's beach in Matunuck are being impacted by hundreds of feet of shore erosion since the 1950s. The houses will be moved about a quarter-mile. Another couple-dozen cottages in the village were previously moved back in 2012 after Superstorm Sandy hit.
