Video: You’ve Seen Magma Lava, But Have You Seen Ice Lava?

As the ice flows head north to the Arctic for the winter in Siberia, sometimes Mother Nature is not so happy…and the river gets angry. This happened this week in Surgut, Siberia, on the Ob, the world’s 7th longest river.

‘Sometimes it sounds like a rustle,’ said Anya, an enthusiastic Ob-watcher. Then you hear a rumble as the ice breaks. Often it is a calm silence,’ reported The Siberian Times.

‘If you fail to go and watch the Ob River, the Ob will come to you!’

‘It’s like the first inhabitants of these places for many centuries ago.

‘And there is something here. Something primordial, real, strong and sincere …’

Another ice drift addict Ksenia Bogdanova said: ‘We are here [embankment] every day, practically living here.

‘In fact this is a simple thing – ice floes on the river….

‘But for me it is such a strong and powerful natural phenomenon that I just cannot afford to miss it.’
