Ice tsunami in the extreme north of Russia means summer is finally here


Ice tsunami at the beginning of June at the
river port of Dudinka in Krasnoyarsk region was filmed by its residents. The minute long video shows ice dramatically
moving and ‘climbing’ up the shore, with large chunks of the heavy floe crashing over
the sand and rocks. Several residents of Dudinka, still dressed
in their warm clothes, retreat as they realise just how powerful is the might of Yenisei
breaking its ice shield. Krasnoyarsk Ministry of Emergencies said that
the video showed the first stage of the ice breaking, and that the river will get clear
within about a week from the moment this footage was filmed.
