Ontario's Hydro One utility was reporting hundreds of power outages Monday morning that are affecting more than 30,000 customers in a large swath of the province stretching from Windsor to west of Ottawa and well north of Sudbury.

Wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour have hit the region, downing trees and causing power outages throughout western NY.

The message to drivers went out Sunday just before 3 p.m. warning of the partial closure on the Niagara Parks Police Service Facebook page.

The unusual sight prompted comparisons to Game Of Thrones' famous ice wall.

The Niagara River Parkway was closed near Mathers Arch because winds kept blowing ice over the Lake Erie retaining wall. These photos show the massive amount of ice that was pushed onto land in just 15 minutes. "This is a wind-driven event", the agency tweeted.

Wind speeds of up to 75 miles per hour, hurricane strength, have damaged power lines and felled trees in some parts of the Great Lakes region, including both the Canadian and United States sides of Niagara Falls.
