Striking!!! An Ice Tsunami



An ice tsunami reached the shores of eastern Russia, due to the thaw of the frozen Amur River since last November.

This impressive natural phenomenon happened specifically in Khabarovsk, the largest city in the Far East and heralds the arrival of spring.

It is a very recurrent phenomenon in the spring period in some rivers and lakes in Asia and America.
In America, it occurs frequently in the Great Lakes area between February and March, and the Americans have christened it a very beautiful term, "Ice Tsunami".

For reasons connected with strong winds and / or currents, the ice floes float on the surface of these basins and invade the emerged terrains, sometimes piling up in thicknesses of several meters, in some cases even destroying the houses.

In this case, we are facing a large river that runs along the border between East-China of China, the Amur River. The current becomes so strong that it drags the floating ice blocks onto the road, destroying even the parapet.

The rocks reached a height of about one meter and entered the city.

Fortunately, the incident did not cause injuries or deaths.
