Ice tsunami in the extreme north of Russia means summer is finally here

By The Siberian Times reporter
18 June 2019

Residents of Dudinka share this impressive - ok, scary! - video of ice breaking on the Yenisei River.

Ice tsunami at the beginning of June at the river port of Dudinka in Krasnoyarsk region was filmed by its residents 

‘Authors of the video, are you alive?!’ said one of the comments to the footage filmed in the river port of Dudinka, in the north of Krasnoyarsk region. 

The minute long video shows ice dramatically moving and ‘climbing’ up the shore, with large chunks of the heavy floe crashing over the sand and rocks. 

Several residents of Dudinka, still dressed in their warm clothes, retreat as they realise just how powerful is the might of Yenisei breaking its ice shield. 

Krasnoyarsk Ministry of Emergencies said that the video showed the first stage of the ice breaking, and that the river will get clear within about a week from the moment this footage was filmed.

‘Hurray!!!! The ice is cracking, the river is flowing again, it means the summer is finally here!’ - cheered resident Aleksandra from Dudinka. 

‘This is so powerful and scary to watch, I kept expecting some kind of monster crawling out on shore’, said a comment on Instagram. 

Another posted: ‘I never thought the Yenisei can be so powerful.’’

Local Nadezhda Asheikina wrote: ‘Congratulations, people of the North, your wait was long enough. Summer is finally on its way.’

many years ago i was working on a passenger ship that went up and down the Jennisei during the summer months...When we were in Dudinka I was wondering why the little fisher huts where the fishermen kept their boats and other things were all on a sort of sledge.Now i understand...( in fall everything is pulled up high onto the embankment)
