February 25th became a winter day to remember, the power of weather was on display as it crippled roads, paralyzed transit and closed businesses and schools.
In Niagara it became an impressive yet scary display of strength when large chunks of ice came barreling over a retaining wall over the American border alongside Niagara River Parkway.

The tallest wall of ice is said to be over 40-ft high.
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

Weather specialists are calling it an Ice Tsunami, it’s gonna take a long stretch of warm weather to melt that towering wall of ice.
