A wall of ice crashed into at least a dozen homes and cottages in Canada's Ochre Beach over the weekend. Experts say an unfortunate combination of strong winds and ice flows caused the destruction along the community's Dauphin Lake. Witnesses say the wave reached 9 meters (29.5 feet) in height.

Luckily, no one was injured during the bizarre natural phenomenon.
