Wind Pushes Ice Off Lake And Across Land

Posted: Updated:

Strong winds have pushed huge ice sheets ashore at a northern Minnesota lake and right up to people's doorsteps. The ice from Lake Mille Lacs reached the doors and windows at the Izatys Resort on Saturday morning. National Weather Service Meteorologist Shawn Devinny says 30 to 40 mile an hour winds pushed the water into the ice, driving it ashore. He says the winds were lighter Sunday and the shoreline got a reprieve. The Department of Natural Resources says about 10 miles of shoreline are covered, with some reaching up to 30 feet high.
