BOONTON - A cluster of homes in one North Jersey community are in danger of falling off a cliff.

Erosion from Hurricane Irene has caused the ground beneath some homes in Boonton to crumble.

A technicality has prevented the problem from being addressed. Even though the houses are Boonton, the river banks are actually owned by Jersey City because the river flows into its reservoir.

Jersey City officials say they're not going to spend city money on a problem created by Mother Nature and are currently in talks with FEMA and the State Capitol about getting funding for the multimillion-dollar project.

As of now, there is no formal plan or timeline for fixing the dilemma.
