Amateur video captures rapid approach of ice wave


An ice wave flowing from Millie Lacs Lake in Minnesota has been captured by amateur video, showing a slowly expanding wave of ice engulfing the gardens along the lakeside and threatening people’s homes.

The video was filmed by Darla Johnson on Saturday morning, 11 May.

The ice cover has hampered the start of the fishing season in Mille Lacs, Minnesota.

Local resorts and bait shops worried the ice would cut into weekend business.

One resort owner told a local paper that there is still 24-inch-thick ice covering the middle of the Mille Lacs Lake.

He said he’s hoping the late start will mean a stronger fishing season later in May and into June, when business tends to level off.
