A woman on Minnesota's Mille Lacs Lake captured video on her cell phone of what looks a bit like an “ice tsunami.”

Forty-mile-per-hour winds sent the ice off the lake, damaging several buildings.

"Seven minutes to go over 15 feet, it was unbelievable,” said Darla Johnson, who started rolling from her friends condo

DNR bulldozers moved the ice away from the foundations so they won’t be flooded when the ice melts.
