>>> one of the scariest scenes on video mother nature can produce. east of brainerd in mid minnesota this is what an ice shove or ice surge looks like. it was a wall of half melted ice shards driven by wind, gusts up to 55 miles an hour. it happened along ten miles of shoreline. 30 feet of ice in some spots entered and destroyed some homes. happened in the north in canada as well. not a good start for the walleye fishing season in minnesota.
