Houses Near Lake Erie In New York Resemble Igloos Amid Blizzards

Houses Near Lake Erie In New York Resemble Igloos Amid Blizzards

Houses near Lake Erie in New York now resemble elaborate igloos following blizzards and an icy blast.

Pictures show houses on Hoover Beach, just in front of the lake, covered in thick ice and long icicles after strong winds blew water from the lake ashore, where it has frozen and encased properties.

The ice is so thick on some homes that residents have had to use tools to get in and out.

Speaking to WGRZ, Hoover Beach local Ed Mis said: "I actually had to go out a secondary door and then chisel my way back into the house by breaking the ice.

"This is like our sixth storm in a matter of a few months, and it's kind of wearing on everybody."

Until the ice thaws, it is impossible to assess just how much damage has been done to the houses, though trees and power lines have also toppled in the strong winds, which almost reached 50mph.
