The houses alongside Lake Erie look from 'Narnia', a fantasy land. However, the reality is much worse.

In a news report, it was said the residents around Lake Erie are not worried about the frozen layers but the damage it will do once it starts melting. It is the second set of climate change the residents are facing after there were alerts of flooding in the area earlier. Currently, the homes are under thick ice layer, with icicles, making the houses look nothing short of a mystical tale. The ice covering the Hamburg, New York homes are over one metre thick. The thickness is not allowing any light to come in through the window.
