Tiny mermaid-painted house 'drifted 200 miles'
A tiny house featuring a painting of a blue-tailed mermaid apparently drifted 200 miles from Florida to south of Louisiana.
The US Coast Guard released a photo of the floating house found 180 miles south of Grand Isle, Louisiana. Petty officer Travis Magee said several people had reported seeing it on Key West, Florida.
The house is believed to have broken free from its mooring without anyone on board.
The building is green with a lavender trim. The side that would have faced land features a painting of the mermaid, a sea turtle and an octopus.
Mr Magee said there was no report of anyone claiming ownership.
