Ice Tsunami: Photos & Videos

Ice Tsunami: Photos & Videos

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

In Toronto, Environment Canada issued a wind warning for Sunday as frequent gusts of 100 to 110 km/h were expected throughout the region, and gusts of 120 km/h were likely along the shores of Lake Ontario.

Videos posted online from the American side of the river show advancing banks of ice toppling trees and light poles.

Incredible video posted to social media by the Niagara Parks Police Service shoes the ice stacked up along Niagara River Parkway, and falling onto the roadway. The ice wall was so large that eventually it forced the department to close streets to the public.

"This ice tsunami is one of the craziest things I've ever witnessed", David Piano also tweeted.

The Town of Hamburg Emergency Services shared a dramatic photo showing the need for a voluntary evacuation.

'We've never had the ice pushed up against the walls and right up onto our patios.

Winds in Buffalo reached up to 75 miles per hour, causing damage to trees and power lines on Sunday. The service added, "This is a particularly risky situation!"

'Strong wind gusts will bring down trees and power lines and result in numerous power outages, ' the agency said. Then, residents can get back to looking forward to spring with the rest of us.
