Posted on May 12, 2013

This video shows a moving wave of ice threatening homes in the Mille Lacs Lake area of Minnesota. The homeowners watch helplessly as the ice creeps towards their homes. You can hear one of the homeowners shout that the ice has just busted through a door in the first video. NBC News reports that several homes were damaged by the ice. NBC News meteorologist says the ice surge was moving at a rate of two feet per minute. It doesn't look quite that fast in the video, but it is obvious the ice is moving. The original 6.5 minute video posted by a resident can be found here. Take a look:
