The power of water.......well ice

It happened on the south side of Lac des Mille Lacs, Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, on May 11, 2013! It destroyed more than 20 houses in 15 minutes! The ice looked like legs creeping up to residences.

Just amazing

Is that surface ice being wind-driven onto shore? Never seen that before. Pretty amazing.

Amazing piece of video, but would you not be digging the front away from your house or trying to, rather than videoing it getting closer.
