    This bizarre phenomenon is known as an "Icecano" which is caused by waves repeatedly forcing water through cracks in an ice sheet near the beach.

    They build up ice cones the same way lava forms a conventional volcano. During extremely cold weather, hundreds of erupting icecanoes can be seen on the shore of the Great Lakes near Chicago.
