In Newbury, high tide brought more beach erosion on Plum Island. Six homes were determined to be unsafe for occupancy after the storm had passed, Town Administrator Tracy Blais said in an e-mail Saturday.

“They cannot be occupied, pending further review,” she wrote.

Five of the homes are on Annapolis Way, a one is on Dartmouth Avenue. All are in stretch of the beach where decades of beach erosion has left many homes at risk of falling into the cold Atlantic.

“Public safety officials will be on the island, monitoring the situation through the next high tide,” Blais wrote Saturday.
