What Is An Ice Storm?
An ice storm is a type of winter storm characterized by freezing rain and most often leaves a coating of ice on the area in which it takes place.
Some of The Effects of The Ice Storm
Hundreds of thousands of people were left without power until the new year.
It was a hazard because of falling trees/branches, and roads were in horrible, slippery condition.
Many roads, (even side streets due to falling trees, branches etc.) were closed due to the excessive amount of ice; it was unsafe to drive.
The ice storm cost Toronto over hundreds of thousands of dollars financially due to the damage done on streets, buildings/houses, roads, etc. These could have been damaged from, fallen trees, branches, telephone poles/wires, or just the weight of the ice itself.
The ice left it unsafe to walk on the sidewalks/roads without extra precaution. It was too slippery and you could fall and get hurt.
During this time it wasn't just the ice that was the problem, it was extremely cold and the low, below zero temperatures led to, (in rare cases) frost bite as well as hypothermia.
The ice storm left houses, cars, streets, and even buildings broken or wrecked.
There were many power outages all across Toronto during the ice storm from fallen telephone poles, and/or wires.
