Ice Tsunami Forces Residents To Evacuate Along Lake Erie

High winds push ice chunks from river onto parkway in Canada

On Monday morning, the National Weather Service in Buffalo warned residents about flooding due to ice flowing and ice jams along the Niagara River, noting that a significant amount of ice has breached the ice boom, which will cause additional ice to flow down the river.

The frozen tsunami created a towering bank of ice that temporarily closed the road in Fort Erie. This prompted evacuations on Sunday in parts of New York, Fox News reported.

Huge chunks of ice are being pushed off of Lake Erie, and onto lakeshore areas. As Fox noted, the National Weather Service is warning that winds along Lake Ontario could also reach 75 miles per hour, causing "extensive damage to trees and power lines, widespread power outages, and property damage to roofs and siding". Ice as high as 25 to 30 feet approached homes, threatening extensive damage.

High winds continue to cause chaos across the East coast, and residents along Lake Erie are dealing with another problem caused by the winds, an ice tsunami.

The ice wave even caused mandatory evacuations around the region, including Hoover Beach in Hamburg, New York. The general public was asked to stay away from Hoover Beach on Sunday.

Unrelenting winds tearing across the eastern U.S. have created a rare "ice tsunami" in upstate NY.
