Ice Tsunami hits house on Mille Lacs Lake, Isle, MN – 4/20/2020

Imagine coming home from work and seeing 20 feet of ice in your back yard or even worse, part of your home smashed in by an Ice Shove or Ice Tsunami.

With winds gusting to over forty miles per hour this afternoon, the remaining large ice field that had yet to melt on Mille Lacs Lake was pushed on the eastern shoreline like a massive Ice Tsunami or Ice Shove.

When the ice on Mille Lacs Lake starts to move in high winds, it is basically similar to a Glacier moving and will not stop until it crashes on shore and into anything in its path which will be pushed out of the way including large boulders and tracks of land and even a house.

Footage includes ground B-Roll, Drone B-Roll and clips from inside the house with the home owner.
