In an unusual incident in Florida, a huge chunk of ice fell on the roof of a house, tearing a large hole. Photos of the unusual incident were shared by the Martin County Sheriff’s Office on their official Facebook account. People found this strange incident terrifying and speculated where the piece of ice came from. In photos shared by the local sheriff’s office, a large hole in the front roof of the house is clearly visible. Another photo shows the fallen ice with the piece of roof broken. The ice, despite the impact, was not completely shattered into small pieces, and a large piece is visible in the photo.
The sheriff’s office informed through the Facebook post that no injuries were caused by the incident and that no further damage reports had been received. They also admitted that at the time they had “no clear explanation as to their origin.”
However, people in the comments section pointed out that the most likely source of the chunk of ice was a commercial aircraft. Social media users also pointed out that there had been similar cases of ice falling from the sky caused by leaks from commercial airliners. Others found him terrifying and worried about what he would have done if he had fallen on someone’s head. Some users wondered how homeowners would explain this to insurance agents.
This is not the first example of a large chunk of ice falling from the sky. There’s even a name for it: megacryometers. The origin of such incidents is debated on the Internet. While some meteorologists believe that it could also be of non-aeronautical origin, others are of the opinion that if the origin of these pieces were natural, such cases would not be so unusual and we would see thousands of them.
