A home on Vilano Beach stands on its pylons after storm surge from Tropical Storm Ian washed away most of its sea wall, driveway and underlying ground.

A two-story house is perched precariously over Vilano Beach after storm surge and tide during Tropical Storm Ian washed away most of its sea wall, driveway and underlying ground.

The house's wooden stilts are completely exposed with no sand or structure to support the bottom of the house.

An "unsafe" sticker was placed on the home for building officials and inspectors to determine the extent of the damage and what is needed to protect it, said Lorena Inclán, public affairs director for St. Johns County.
