Two Arctic Ocean sea ice surges, known by Alaska Natives as 'ivus', have crashed onto the shore at Barrow, Alaska, in quantities not seen in nearly three decades. A lot of residents were stunned by the specticle and had never seen it before.
"It just looked like a big old mountain of ice," said L.A. Leavitt, 19. Ivus are like frozen tsunamis and can be quite deadly. Their violent force has killed people in the past and are among the Arctic's most feared natural phenomena.
