The small city is located in the Niagara region, which has been hardest hit in Canada after severe winter storm Elliot hit the province late last week, giving the city’s name new meaning. according to CTV News Toronto. All bridges across the Niagara are currently closed due to a storm-related US travel ban.

The town is now completely covered in ice, from the roofs of their houses to the roofs of their cars. The winds were so strong that waves from Lake Erie inundated local homes and residents’ cars and covered them with ice. Now people doubt that they can get rid of the ice without damaging or scratching real and personal property.

“The waves were 10 to 15 feet (3 to 4.5 meters) high, over the walls,” Derek Tapling, a longtime Crystal Beach resident, said in an interview with the television channel. “After that, the water froze the back of the houses, from the top of the houses to the bottom. So you can imagine the sheer volume and power of water being poured onto a wall to hit it and then instantly freeze it. It’s absolutely incredible.” Tapling added that the ice on the back of these houses is at least 12 inches thick, causing residents to worry about damage as the ice begins to melt and water begins to pool. .

The town also had heavy “whitewashing,” so residents couldn’t see the houses across the street. At the same time, the wind gusts reached 160 kilometers per hour. Many Fort Erie residents were without power over the weekend, with some 3,900 residents still without power, according to an update from Canada’s Niagara Power.
