OCONTO (WLUK) -- Earlier this week, warm weather and gusty winds sent the ice off the Bay of Green Bay and onto the shoreline at Breakwater Park in Oconto.

In just a matter of minutes, thick slabs of ice piled up on the shoreline in a beautiful, yet dangerous phenomenon known as ice shoves.

Justin Steinbrinck went to Oconto to see the spectacle for himself and to hear from city officials on seeing these ice shoves and how uncommon they are around the shoreline of Oconto.
