Gale Force Winds Near Lake Erie Freeze Homes Along the Beach in Hamburg

Strong winds and cold temperatures near Lake Erie left houses along Hoover Beach in Hamburg, New York, covered in ice on Friday, February 28, as seen in this footage filmed by Lise Kreuder.

The winter storm reportedly brought gale force winds and 18 foot waves off the shoreline along Lake Erie, which left the properties near the shoreline looking like a winter wonderland Friday morning.

Kreuder described the scene as a “new ice age” in the neighborhood.

“This is mother nature’s worst, but in the summer sunsets are beautiful,” said Kreuder. Credit: Lise Kreuder via Storyful
