It Is 2016 and Your House Could Get Demolished Because Google Maps Is Confusing

New, 1 comment

Them's the breaks

A woman in Texas recently had her house demolished because Google Maps mixed up two addresses and directed a demolition crew to her house instead of to the house they were supposed to tear down. (To be fair, her house had also recently been damaged by a tornado and probably looked like something that could be demolished, although that was not her intention. But still.) This is both insane and also totally something that would happen. So, uh...good luck out there and we let's all hope our houses don't get mistakenly demolished.
