Mysterious Ice Chunk Crashes Through Roof of California Home

Monica Savath and her family were sitting in the living room Wednesday morning when they were startled by what sounded like an explosion emanating from the area of their attached garage. They arrived to find what appeared to be a large chunk of white ice that had crashed through the family’s roof. Meteorologists claim that while blue skies and warm temperatures may defy explanation for these events, condensation from airplanes could form large ice wedges, dislodging midair, and become a likely culprit for the object which crashed through the Modesto home.

No injuries were reported, and the FAA still has no immediate answers for the event, but neighbor Lisa Lawrence shares, “Sounded like a jet, actually. That’s what made me look up, and I was like, if that’s a jet, it’s travelling pretty low.”

This small disaster echoes an event that allegedly happened in the same area last year, though critics argue that while the chunk which crashed through another home was blue and as a result of an airplane toilet leak, this ice was white and had no distinct smell.
