Imagine coming home from work and seeing a huge mountain of ice in your backyard … Or worse, part of your house is destroyed by an ice tsunami.
According to some locals, the ice waves were up to 9 meters high and swallowed everything in their path … even some houses!
The wind blew at over forty miles an hour, and the remaining large icefield that had not yet melted on Lake Millax was pushed onto the eastern coastline like a massive ice tsunami.
When the ice on Mille Lax begins to move in high winds, it is basically like a moving glacier and will not stop until it comes ashore, blowing everything in its path.
One of the local residents says, - This is just crazy! About seven years ago, we had the same ice tsunami phenomenon. But it turned out to be four times less than what it is now!
