A mountain of ice eighty-feet high builds up on the Niagara river. Ice blown in?
A mountain of ice eighty-feet high builds up on the Niagara river. Ice blown in from Lake Eric moved down the falls and built up along both shores of the lower river and caused extensive damage. On the Canadian side, facilities at the Maid of the Mist excursion landing were torn loose by tons of ice. The jam stretches about six miles along the lower river, and one police official says there is as much ice in the river now as twenty-five years ago when the old Rainbow bridge was taken out. However, the new bridge is not being threatened by the jam.
