Have you ever seen ice piling up along a shoreline?
The video shows ice flow being pushed from one end of the bay to the other by incredibly strong gusts of wind, and then breaking the ice into large shards.
Ice shelves are being pushed onto shore by strong winds, ocean currents, or temperature differences, creating piles up to 40 feet high.
The surges of ice could be dangerous when being pushed on shore, and can damage or even destroy buildings near the shore. Some describe them as ‘ice tsunamis.’
The “ice tsunamis” shown in the video are more mild, but nonetheless interesting. Enjoy!
