The same strong winds that caused "ice tsunamis" earlier this week have caused water spray from Lake Ontario to encase homes in Pulaski, New York, creating a tremendous winter spectacle. Social media photos showing homes enveloped in 3 to 4 feet of ice created a stir with internet users.
WSTM-TV of Syracuse reports that many of of the owners of these "ice houses" live out of town and might be unaware of the condition of their property.
Maureen Whelan found her waterfront house encased in a layer of ice up to a few feet thick on Monday. She and her neighbor on the beach worry about the damage that may occur when the ice melts.
"When that starts melting, we're just very fearful that it's going to come and ruin the house," Whelan told WSTM-TV of Syracuse.
In 2017, a house in West Webster, New York, along the shore of Lake Ontario also froze over.
New York Upstate reported that there was no damage done to the house.Report a Typo
