Aerial flight over Ochre Beach Ice Shove
The phenomenon known as an ice shove damaged and destroyed 27 properties on the southern shore of Dauphin Lake at Ochre Beach. Described by some as an 'ice tsunami,' Ice Shoves have also recently destroyed or threatened property in Lake Mille Lacs, Minn., Lake Winnebago, Wis., Alberta Beach, Alta., and Lake Champlain, N.Y. These aerial photographs were taken three days after event.
