Wind-Driven Ice Comes Ashore to Damaging Effect

Winds driving ice sheets in the process of breaking up from the winter are causing headaches for lake towns in Manitoba, Canada and Minnesota. Along the Mille Lac Lake shoreline in Minnesota the buildup of ice has caused extensive damage to homes and properties due to 30 to 40 mile per hour winds on Saturday, May 11. The day before, winds pushed ice into the communities southwest of Dauphin Lake in Manitoba, Canada. This image was taken by the Suomi NPP satellite's VIIRS instrument around 1825Z on May 12, 2013. An unannotated version of this image can be found here.
