Celebrities and billionaires left powerless as their multimillion-dollar Malibu homes are mercilessly battered by huge waves

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

From an article in The Daily Mail:  “The rich and famous are well-seasoned in dodging the lurking paparazzi in their Malibu haven.  But as these pictures prove, they are currently contending with a bigger threat in their exclusive gated community – their multimillion-dollar homes are getting battered by huge waves which are spilling over into their seaside showplaces.

The erosion of the beach means the celebrities and billionaires who live along the exclusive beach stretch of Malibu Colony are powerless to protect their guarded houses from the forces of nature.  As these photos powerful waves have smashed through glass panels, pulled down fences and destroyed many beach side balconies which are owned by some of the most wealthy and powerful people in the United States.

In recent years, winter storms and rising high tides have reduced the size of the famously long and impressive beach and now the high tides threaten to erode the foundations of the homes along the coast – despite millions already having been spent on a sea wall further along the coast and sand bag defenses.

Last year it was revealed that Hollywood mega-stars Steven Spielberg, Dustin Hoffman, Goldie Hawn and one-time James Bond actor, Pierce Brosnan, face losing their exclusive multi-million dollar beach-front homes along Broad Beach unless a $20 million scheme to cure the erosion of the shoreline is approved.

Homeowners along Broad Beach are struggling to see a future for their properties unless the opposition to a complicated approval process to dredge sand from elsewhere and dump it to restore the 1.1 mile beachfront is given the green light.

Waves sometimes lap up to an 8-foot-high 4,100-foot-long emergency rock wall that state regulators allowed homeowners to build about three years ago to protect dozens of multimillion-dollar homes.
