This ice sounds and moves like an old locomotive with faulty brakes, and it’s incredibly dangerous.
Ice tsunamis are not sudden occurrences. They move slowly—inexorably—and can’t be easily slowed or stopped. This wave of ice could eventually destroy homes and nearly everything in its path.
This video shows an ice tsunami from glaciers in Mille Lacs Lake in Minnesota engulfing the Izatys Resort grounds. The tsunami, caused by strong winds and breaking ice, damaged homes and other buildings in the town around the lake.
