An entire house has been swept away by raging floodwaters in New Hampshire as a ferocious storm battered parts of the north-east.

Footage shot by a resident captured the unbelievable moment the house started floating down the Baker River in the small town of Warren on Monday.

Moments later, the one-story house was filmed crashing into a bridge and smashing into pieces.

'This is so sad,' Tom Babbit, who shared the video on Facebook, wrote.

No one was in the house at the time and it isn't yet clear who the homeowners are.

The fierce storm left nearly 1.5 million homes and business across the region in the dark at the peak on Monday. More than 800,000 customers remained without power Tuesday morning.

While the house was swept away in New Hampshire, sailboats also crashed onto a beach in Massachusetts and an empty scaffolding truck was blown off a bridge.

Thousands of trees were also toppled.

In Maine on Tuesday, fallen trees were tangled in power lines, while trees, limbs and leaves littered roads. Fences, vehicles and houses were also smashed by falling trees and limbs. 

The storm packed winds gusting to 82 mph on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, 78 mph in New Hampshire, and 69 mph in Portland, Maine. 

Some cities and towns in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Connecticut postponed trick-or-treating from Halloween night - Tuesday - to as late as Sunday evening due to concerns about pitch-black streets, downed power lines and debris. 

The weather this week is seasonable - high temperatures in the 50s and 60s and cooler overnight, though the low Wednesday morning was predicted to approach freezing.

I will never understand why American build Homes like that; made from cardboard and not anchored to the foundation. I’ve seen 2 story homes get blown away, swept up in a light flood and it still baffles my mind.
Even if the house isn’t swept away, but gets water damage because it’s made from cardboard you have to gut the house as opposed to concrete that just needs a good fan to dry the water.
