Ice Tsunami Caught On Camera

Postby zzyzx 2 » Tue May 14, 2013 12:28 am

Ever seen an Ice Tsunami? From CNN:

The ice moves inexorably ashore, crackling as it goes like thousands of windows breaking. In minutes, it's moved from the shoreline of a Minnesota lake to the walls of homes along the lake.

"It was just pushing and breaking and pushing and breaking," Darla Johnson, who made a video of Saturday's "ice tsunami" on Mille Lacs Lake, told CNN affiliate WCCO-TV in Minneapolis. Johnson's video had more than 275,000 views on YouTube by Monday morning. [It now has 426,698 views].

And once you watch it, you can't stop. It's like a sci-fi movie, and there's certainly science involved. This happened in Lake Mille Lacs, Minnesota.

:shock: That's one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

Oh sh*t! Minnesota says yes to gay marriage and ice tsunami strikes. Do you know what this means? Pat Robertson was right. :lol:

That was awesome!
I've seen something like that before, but on a much smaller scale. The ice piling up on the shore can push the land into a little mound right on the shore. We call it an "ice shove berm".
