Massive ice floes rose out of a lake in Canada over the weekend, destroying a dozen homes and damaging fifteen others.

Within mere moments,
strong winds drove piles of ice onto the shore from Dauphin Lake on
Friday, inundating homes and giving residents only minutes to flee.

55-mile-per hour
winds drove masses of ice from the thawing lake in a phenomenon that is
commonly witnessed but rarely seen with such intensity and size.

Dwarfed: Winds forced massive walls of ice onto the shores of Lake Dauphin, dwarfing homes in rural Manitoba, Canada on Friday

By Friday night, a state of emergency had been declared in the town of Ochre River, a 188 miles northwest of Winnipeg.

Authorities told the Winnipeg Free Press that seven of the destroyed homes were ‘literally crushed by the ice that rose up within minutes from Lake Dauphin.’

Twenty-seven homes were affected in total as the frozen wall to plowed through everything in its way along Ochre Beach.

Though the moving ice was as tall as a house in places, no injuries have been reported.

Nonetheless, residents were still shaken Saturday

Unusual: A dozen homes were destroyed and many
others left uninhabitable after winds piled ice onto Ochre Beach Friday
in an unusually large ice flow

Terrifying: Homeowners had only minutes to flee as the mounting ice entered their doors and windows

Even some of those
whose houses remained standing were allowed inside only to collect their
belongings after authorities declared many of the seemingly spared
dwellings to be structurally unfit to inhabit.

One family told the
Free Press the ice easily topped and pushed into their two-story home,
shuffled moved furniture around, and ‘pushed the bathroom tub and vanity
into the hallway.’

‘They heard it
before they saw it coming up their decks,’ Ochre River deputy Reeve
Clayton Watts told the Free Press Saturday. ‘Then, it came right in
their front windows. It was just a matter of minutes. Fortunately, no
one was hurt. We were very lucky.’

Unlucky: The affected town Ochre River, 188
miles outside Winnipeg, had only recently begun to recover from severe
floods in 2011

Help: Hundreds of volunteers showed up Saturday to help dig Ochre Beach out of the massive ice floe

The town, still reeling from a severe 2011 flood that destroyed many homes, was somber but not helpless.

Watts was one hand
for Saturday’s clean-up efforts, which saw friends and neighbors come
together to get the community back on its feet.

Hundreds of volunteers were on hand with shovels, wheel barrows, and even bulldozers to dig the town out.

‘Everybody was
pitching in to help them make it through the day,’ Watts said. ‘It was a
good community effort. It’s typical. Everybody just helps out.’

Severe: Many of the 27 affected homes were not destroyed, but still deemed uninhabitable

A similar phenomenon occurred around 600 miles away at a Minnesota lake resort.

And though the ice wave on the
American side wasn’t nearly was as destructive, it still had some
residents calling it an ‘ice Tsunami’ and marveling at its unbelievable
speed, according to WCCO.

Youtube user Darla Johnsonuploaded footage of ice rising out of Milles Lacs Lake and into the townhomes of Izatys Resort on May 11.

The same high wind weather system is thought to have caused both incidents.

Again: Some of the leveled homes were brand new, having just been rebuilt in the wake of severe 2011 flooding

Homeless: Canadian officials were at work
Saturday helping the community dig out of the ice and to find shelter
for those left homeless by the floe
