'Ice Shove' Damages Some Manitoba Homes Beyond Repair

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Residents of Ochre Beach, Manitoba, were surprised when heavy ice floes were pushed up on their beachfront properties last week, damaging many homes to the point of no repair. The ice event is the first for the area, but the second weather event to wreak havoc after severe flooding in 2011.
