Heaving ice phenomenon damages house in Door County


TOWN OF UNION, Wis. (AP) — Ice shoves along the bay of Green Bay are quite a spectacle. But, for one property owner they created a lot of damage.

The ice shove phenomenon looks like a big iceberg creeping up on the shore. The surging ice broke through the wall of a cottage in the Town of Union in Door County during the weekend and into a bedroom.

The home's caretaker, Greg Ludwig, says the ice pushed against and into the house over the course of a few hours. Ludwig says the sheriff's department called him because authorities were concerned about possible damage to the gas line.

Ludwig says the cottage was the only property with damage.
