ONAMIA, Minn. (AP) — Walls of wind-swept ice are grinding into houses and threatening a resort on Lake Mille Lacs.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation says the mini icebergs also are causing problems on lakefront roads and are intermittently blocking lanes of Highway 169 south of Garrison.
The Star Tribune reports ice has swept onto the golf course of Izatys Resort in Onamia.
Ice damaged Randy Dykhoff's property along the shore north of Garrison over the weekend. Dykhoff of Mound was notified by the sheriff's office of the damage.
He says he carried several wheelbarrow loads of ice from his kitchen. It was the first time the home has been damaged by ice since 1997, when he bought the property.
