PHOTOS: Springlike Warmth Dislodges Huge Ice Chunks From Boston Roofs Obliterating Parked Cars Below

As Boston starts to see mountainous piles of snow melt away in warmer weather, springlike conditions have brought an unwelcome consequence.

Large, dense chunks of ice have been plummeting from area buildings and smashing into parked vehicles. In the Boston suburb of Burlington, Massachusetts, local firemen responded to slab of ice that pierced the front windshield of an occupied car.


WBZ reported that the woman sitting in the driver's seat at the time of the incident was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at an area hospital.

With temperatures climbing into the 40s and 50s for much of this week, local officials are urging residents to take notice of potential dangers.

"The most-consistent warmth since last December is in store for the region this week," AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.


In other cities like Chicago and New York, similar conditions have sent blocks of ice flying from towering buildings. https://www.google.com/maps/d/embed?mid=zRDh_jgKp5Jk.kA_cpMHPQ4-Q
