And ice tsunami was spawned on Lake Erie by a massive windstorm which has resulted in the loss of power for thousands in the area. The ice storm took place Sunday across parts of New York and along Lake Erie, pushing large chunks of ice along lakeshore areas.
Chunks of ice stacked up along the Niagara River Parkway along the lake forced the roadway to be closed in some sections after the ice tsunami hit. Ice mounds between 25 and 30 feet high could be seen in photos approaching people’s homes. Twitter users shared their accounts of what this ice tsunami looked like, and it is eerie.
This ice tsunami is one of the craziest things I've ever witnessed. Starting to bulldoze trees and street lamps. #onstorm #onwx #forterie #windstorm #windstorm2019 #seiche #iceshove #icetsunami @ReedTimmerAccu @NWSBUFFALO @EC_ONweather @weathernetwork pic.twitter.com/SHj8jXCDqI

According to a report by Fox News, The National Weather Service in Buffalo warned that winds along neighboring Lake Ontario could reach 75 mph, causing “extensive damage to trees and power lines, widespread power outages, and property damage to roofs and siding. This is a particularly dangerous situation! If you must travel be prepared for extensive damage and downed power lines,” the agency said.
The ice tsunami along the Hoover Beach area of Hamburg, New York spurred a voluntary evacuation for residents there. “Residents in Hoover Beach can expect the Woodlawn FD to come door to door accounting for residents,” town officials said in a Facebook post. The weather system had also generated the strong winds that toppled trees and fallen branches which took out power lines across the region Sunday and into Monday as winds gusted to 60 mph or higher. “We’ve had storms in the past but nothing like this,” Hoover Beach resident Dave Schultz told WGRZ. “We’ve never had the ice pushed up against the walls and right up onto our patios… it’s in my patio, the neighbor’s patio, and the patio after that.”
Wind advisories and warnings are also in effect through Monday in the mid-Atlantic and Northeast due to the “very slow moving” system, according to Fox News Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean. “We also have the potential for some snow across the Great Lakes, and with those wind gusts blizzard conditions are going to be of big concern,” Dean said Monday on FOX & Friends.
“ice tsunami” lol.
welcome to living on the east side of the great lakes. Happens every couple years or so.
EXACTLY…Why are people acting like this is the first time this has happened?
If you live around ANY of the 5 Great Lakes you will experience brutal cold winters and lake effect snow..Doom/gloom fans can sensationalize this all they want,but it’s not the first time this has happened and won’t be the last..
I spent some time on/around Isle Royale a few summers ago. If people think Erie can be problematic during bad weather, try Superior in a kayak. Storm blew up out of nowhere. I was %95 convinced I was going to die. And that was summer.
The east and west coast has very little on the great lakes.
I grew up in Michigan along Lake Huron. The Great lakes do moderate the weather but not always like one might expect. Storms can pop up from nowhere. Growing up, my father always had a boat and we went through a few of those instant storms. His earlier boats were open and if a storm appeared on the horizon, we headed for safety immediately. His later boat builds had cover so if we were fishing, the boat might remain in place if it appeared to be a quick blow. That’s where I learned to tell the weather, because back then there weren’t cell phones, etc., but there are many signs in nature to read.
Lake Superior must be seen in person to fully comprehend just how HUGE the lake actually is.
Think ocean,but fresh water..
yep, and I did the homework, research etc for 6 months before changing the original plan of circumnavigating the island and instead went with a long backpacking week bracketed by two weekends in a sea kayak. Still nearly killed me because I didn’t respect the lake. What I saw that day was NOTHING compared to the shitfest that hit a few months later in October that year. 15′ waves, wind, snow, ice etc. Seriously, the coast has nothing on the GL region.
Had the privilege to meet and speak with a couple of refugee families from Communist Venezuela this weekend. One told me how she took her car one day to fill it at a gas station, only to be surrounded by Red Guard militia who declared it ” Property of the State”.
The other owned a Mom & Pop store only to have it looted and shut down by commie gangs. The Red Guards then showed up at their home, invaded and took everything they had right down to a bottle of aspirin, food, and bars of soap.
Lesson, be prepared to fight always, keep some preps hidden, and DON’T LET THE US BECOME A COMMUNIST COUNTRY!
Now watch out fur dem hogs!
We Americans believe that these same red guard people are employable, equally entitled to an opinion, and we elect them to high office.
I do not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it, said the libertarian to the vulgar savage.
I guess you have a problem with wealth re-distribution!
If you like it Vote Democratic in 2020 – It will then be the la of the land
And those guns you are hoarding for personal defense – kiss then goodbye
MAGA Trump 2020
Save the world from this scourge
SW, I’ll be sure to watch out for the hogs. Especially if they’re commies. I can guarantee none of those ‘red guards’ would’ve even made it into my home because they would’ve all been laying dead on the ground in their own pools of blood. There’s a reason that the Soviet and Chinese flags are red.
If y’all think about it, what is the difference between Maduro’s commie militias and Antifa or Black Lives Matter?
or the brownshirts of Germany, or the “lennin boys” and lennin youth in Hungary, and on and on and on. The up and coming dictators and statists and traditionally used domestic citizens whipped into a mindless frenzy against the “other” as shock troops and enforcers.
why bother with a standing domestic army when you can have an organized and armed mob, right?
Looking at the history of several nations, confiscated civilian small arms went directly to these people. Its bad enough they may take your guns, but then they may well use them against other like-minded citizens. let that sink in real good boys.
The Chinese underwear ad, in the left hand margin, is gross.
its not lake effect snow, its the normal ice floes that get shoved up on top of each other during strong winds about this time of year. The winds were rather strong yesterday and continued through the night. still a normal occurrence though
(Raunchy node is deleted.)
Has anyone ever seen Iron Mountain a blueprint for tyranny???
Regarding the consequences of peace and ‘broken window fallacy’, in which chaos is considered a constructive force.
I refer you to the ‘People of Walmart’ and ‘Strange Addictions’, because even the most mundane things are a force for evil, in the hands of reprobates. Dangerous, capricious stupidity does not need to be engineered, intentionally. Plenty of examples happen on their own.
When read the j-bait posts, I lol’d, because it was boorish and slapstick pigwrestling, to me, and I liked to get dirty, too.
I am not always a victim or even altruistic. Noone should think so.
No one could pay me any amount of money to live up north, especially the great lakes region. We Southerners prefer to be warm.
Yup, no ice tsunami here in SC. Just a nice sunny 64 today!
enjoy your hurricanes and fire ants 😛
There’s a strange story that has yet to be picked up in the American press about a 20,000 lb humpback whale found in the Amazon rainforest…nowhere near the shore. Cue the Twilight Zone theme song.
Plus Biblical plagues of locusts again in the Middle East and fortean phenomena of fish falling during a storm.
But hey, don’t pay attention to End Times events because you don’t care about the Bible and Hell.
Footage of the humpback whale in the Amazon jungle, miles from shore, no visible injuries.
1 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: 3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; 4 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. 5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.
It was found on an island at the mouth of the Amazon about 50 feet from shore, not miles into the rain forest of Brazil..
I misread it based on an earlier report.
It’s thousands of kilometers north of where it should be this time of year. See this link.
Looking for info on the whale I came across
Mystery as 36ft-long humpback whale is found dead in the Amazon JUNGLE leaving experts baffled as to how it got there
In the article
“Experts in Brazil have been left baffled as to how the ten-tonne animal came to be lying in the woodland area around 50ft (15 meters) from the sea.”
“The marine mammal was discovered last Friday in the middle of the undergrowth on the island of Marajo off the Araruna Beach, at the mouth of the Amazon River.”
It’s only 50 ft, so I am not going to suggest it’s aliens…But it’s aliens.
Storm surge could cover this.
Bad journalism and worse descriptors to get clicks.
…we are baffled as to what a humpback whale is doing on the north coast of Brazil during February because this is a very unusual occurrence.”
Humpback whales are commonly seen further south on the Bahia coast of Brazil between August and November, but very rarely travel the thousands of kilometres north to the mouth of the Amazon.
NO doubt about it, this global warming is a terrible thing.
We must DO something!
YES!! Something MUST be done!
Send me all your money and I will do something.
Some Americans may have felt uneasy 35 years ago when DUI laws, DWI checkpoints, seatbelt laws, and car liability insurance laws were started, but most people felt that the experts must be right.
Pro-police state shows like “COPS” and “America’s Most Wanted” were then aired, neighborhood watch groups were formed, “get tough on crime” candidates were elected, and laws allowing mandatory minimums, IMBRA, 3 strikes laws, curfews, police militarization, teen boot camps, school metal detectors, private prisons, and chain gangs were enacted.
Nanny state smoking laws then started appearing.
When 9/11 happened, the Patriot Act was passed, NSA wiretapping, no knock raids, take down notices, no fly lists, terror watch lists, Constitution free zones, stop and frisk, kill switches, National Security Letters, DNA databases, kill lists, FBAR, FATCA, Operation Chokepoint, TSA groping, civil forfeiture, CIA torture, NDAA indefinite detention, secret FISA courts, FEMA camps, laws requiring passports for domestic travel, IRS laws denying passports for tax debts, gun and ammo stockpiles, laws outlawing protesting, Jade Helm, sneak and peek warrants, policing for profit, no refusal blood checkpoints, license plate readers, redlight cameras, speed cameras, FBI facial and voice recognition, tattoo databases, gun bans, the end to the right to silence, free speech bans, searches without warrants, CISPA, SOPA, private prison quotas, supermax prisons, FOSTA, sex offender registration laws, and sex offender restriction laws were allowed.
Now that the USA is a total police state, Americans are finding out that changing anything is impossible and that freedom is lost forever.
A whale dropped right in their laps. Think of all the oil for lamps, soap, and dinner.
Hopefully NY will blow away ….. we can only wish! Another SHITHOLE!
Guess what time it is? Matthew 16:1-4, “The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.
2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.
3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.” Get ready for His return!
This is best post of the day.
I have seen articles and photos on this for decades. It is nothing new or scary.
