Killer icicles terrorise Russians

3 posts in this topic

Falling icicles and ice blocks have killed five people and injured 147 in St Petersburg following Russia's coldest winter in 30 years.

"Every day, I go out into the street as if I was entering a war zone," complained resident Boris Ilinsky, 28.

"I've got to keep my eyes on the ground to avoid slipping and I'm also looking up to avoid falling lumps of ice," he added.

The high toll has prompted residents and relatives of victims to demand action against those responsible for what they believe to be careless clearing of ice from rooftops.

Stop standing under the icicles could help prevent the deaths. :/ That's all the advice I can give.

It sounds almost funny. But yes large icicles can be very dangerous. I've heard stories of people getting impaled.
