Creeping ice destroys homes in Manitoba, Canada and Minnesota, US

News Limited Network May 12, 2013 10:40AM [ your video embedded ]

Dramatic phone footage shows ice flows from a lake in Michigan rolling ashore and relentlessly closing in on lakeside houses.

IT'S A SCENE that could be from a '70s horror movie: A wave of ice crystals relentlessly marching towards homes in Minnesota in the United States.

The massive ice floes have also destroyed 12 homes and damaged another 15 in Canada, which boarders Minnesota.

According to emergency officials, a total of seven homes in Ochre Breach were "literally crushed" by the ice that rose up within minutes pushed by strong winds, Winnepeg Free Press reports.

A resident caught footage of a wave of ice that creeped off another lake in Minnesota - as foam froze and was pushed ashore by strong, icy winds.

Billions of needles of ice seemingly crawl up out of the lake and swarm over the shoreline.

Up to three feet deep, the ice eventually forced itself into houses after ripping up bushes, trees and fences as it marched up the beach.

The eerie crackling sound is from ice crystals cracking as the ice needles move and grow.

The phenomenon follows several weeks of unusual weather conditions in the
United States. Late snowfall and cold winds have dominated the unusually late spring.
